Thanks to mom for the emergency tech support while I was at Kobata. I saw this Bronze Loquat tree on special and wanted to double check what I was buying. I am familiar with the Loquat tree but was not sure about the bronze thrown into the name.
We had this tree growing up. I loved the fruit, small little orange balls. The perfect size to pop into your mouth and just spit out the seed. I didn't know the name until recently. I always called it a Japanese Plumb. Since moving to Southern California they are pretty common. But the bronze variety has a very pretty leaf. I was planing on putting one in the back to replace the Australian Tree Fern that died. But it fit so perfectly in the front. The shade will be much appreciated.
Now we can plant a citrus in the back. Any suggestions?
