Eriobotrya japonica

Loquats are native to China and are cultivated for their sweet, prolific fruit, as well as their leaves for tea. The tree is evergreen, and the large, waxy leaves are very ornamental. Well established trees can tolerate cold down to 12 degrees. They are drought tolerant, but will produce more with adequate water.
