I have one in my yard. It has flowers on it right now for the first time in the three years I have had it. Like most loquats its extremely slow growing

I agree with Brad-- I am also in southern California, but north of Los Angeles, and have a Big Jim loquat I bought from Home Depot that was about three feet high not long ago, maybe early June.  It is now well over five feet tall and is blooming!
