Answer: Loquats are native to China and Japan. They are popularly grown as ornamentals in the southeastern and western parts of the United States. In frost-free areas they are also grown for their delicious fruit.
Best grown in USDA Zones 7-10; fruit and flowers are destroyed by low temperatures (26-28 degrees F). The foilage will withstand temperatures to 15 degrees for short periods of time. Sounds as though your garden might be too cold to successfully grow loquat. Wish I had better news for you!
