Loquat

Are Loquats good pot plants and are there self-fertile varieties that you would recommend if the answer to the first question is yes?

I have seen loquats that are as big as oak trees. I have also seen loquats in 25 gallon pots
full of fruit. I have three different types I grafted and they are still in pots. I recently bumped
them up to 15 gallon pots and am trying to figure out their spot in my yard.
My trees are flowering now and I don't see fruit set yet? Are you growing in a
greenhouse? If you are do you have pollinators available this time of year?

I don't have a loquat, I also don't have a greenhouse. It is winter (or close to winter) so the pollinators are unavailable at this time.
