It's been raining & windy here and some of my branches from the KT3 & KT9 have too many fruits hanging, so I need to trim some branches before they break off. So next week after the rain stops, I will be selling a limited quantiy of cuttings from my seedling trees to registered forum members.

I do not plan to sell any loquat cuttings this year, but due to the weather, I will share this rare selection to our members. KT3 fruit shape is elongated, large, flesh is white/light yellow. Taste is very good. KT9 fruit looks similar to Big Jim but fruit seems to be a little larger, could be a cross of Big Jim with one of the other 50 varieties that was grafted on my tree at the time I planted the seeds. KT9 has orange flesh, very sweet, some people say it is one of the best tasting, no tartness when ripe. I would rate both of these in my top 5 best tasting of the 25 seedling trees that have fruited for me.

Closed now.

Here's the summary on the KT3-Sheri Lynn:

- Fruits shape is elongated most of the time. Fruit size is medium.
- Flesh is white, light yellow.
- KT3 is a more vigorous tree than Big Jim, each branch has an upright growth, except when all the
   fruits hang from them.
- Growth habit is similar to KT9-Lindsey. Both of these have strong and fast-growing branches.
- Medium fruit production. Not as productive as KT1.
- Taste is very good, white flesh loquats have a slightly different texture than the orange flesh. This
   fruit is not as juicy as the KT1, but taste is light, sweet, good texture.
- Fruit is very pretty, clean, no blemish of the skin. Also notice that Vist White will bruish easily,
  even when hanging on the tree if it rubs or bumps into the other fruits on the branch, the KT3
  does not. This might be a good candidate for selling at Farmers Market since the fruit is so clean
  with no blemish.

Here's the summary on the KT9-Lindsey:

- Fruits seems larger than my Big Jim, even without any fruit thinning. They are all large fruits.
- Taste seems to be better (sweeter) than Big Jim, no tartness if you wait until it is ripe.
- KT9 is a more vigorous tree than Big Jim, each branch has an upright growth, except
   when all the fruits hang from them.
- Growth habit is similar to KT3-Sheri Lynn. Both of these have strong and fast growing branches.
- Highly productive, each branch will have fruits every year. Not as productive as KT1.
- Fruit production of KT9 is higher than KT3, but not as much as KT1 (most productive).
- May be the best tasting orange flesh fruit I have.
