Loquat blooming in summer
« on: July 16, 2023, 12:29:58 PM »
So I recently had to move all my plants out of my greenhouse cause I was away on a holiday and fighting a mealey bug infestation. My greenhouse was running form 70-86 deg at the time. We had a recent cold spell down to mid 50ís and my 3 loquats all bloomed for the first time. Do I keep these? The same thing happened with my mangos last year (Pickering) and the fruit was really good (from what I can tell living in Canada).

Is it a certain variety? Summer flowering is a rarity in loquats. Only in some varieties this is the case.
