Not sure what it is, it is planted in the ground, and the leaves did not die back after Winter. Thanks!!

Looks like a loquat perhaps.

I agree, I think it's a Loquat. Maybe you'll get some fruit!

Yep. Looks like a loquat, although those leaves look smoother than the loquats I'm used to. Their leaves are a bit fuzzy. Maybe it's because it's a young tree, perhaps?

I can hardly wait for the ones in my neighborhood to bloom. Either the locals don't know they're edible, or, they ate so many of them in their younger days, they're tired of them.

Either way, I will be harvesting all the loquat fruits I want this season, and making LOQUAT JAM!

Ain't God good? I tip my hat to you.

Our Loquats bloom in the winter and fruit in the spring. This year it must have been too cold for the bees because most of the fruit is tiny, seedless, and falls off the trees ?
