Thanks Janet, I will try to stay on the forum long enough so that i can spread many of the loquat varieties I have on my trees before I leave. Also, my seedling loquat trees (KTxx) that have good tasting fruits. This summer I hope to finish my loquat taste test of all the varieties I have and post the results (brix).

Kaz, I don't know whether the ones you sent me were from your seedlings or others, but I randomly got to try some other named varieties around the same time and the ones you sent me were FAR AND AWAY the best quality overall out of everything we tried. Super-refreshing. Seeds are just sprouting for that experiment, and I'll be absolutely proud to have anything you worked on end up in the yard.

CeeJey, yes your seeds are from my multi-grafted trees and the fruits you tasted so hope you get some new seedlings with excellent tasting fruits as I have from my seedlings. Good Luck with them.

Hi @BayTropics, it's concerning when you have a reliable source like Adam at AKME Gardens, and there's a sudden lack of communication or delays in receiving your orders. Hopefully, he's doing fine, and there might be some unforeseen circumstances causing the delay. You could try reaching out to him directly to inquire about your order's status and his well-being.
By the way, if you're looking to enhance your garden experience, you might want to consider adding a small corner summer house. It can be a lovely addition to your garden, providing a cozy spot to relax and enjoy your outdoor space.
For our British friends.  Actually this is spam.
