Have a loquat tree that is over 3 years old and has grown to over 12 feet high. Yet it has provided no fruit. Does it need pollination/fertilization? If yes, where do I go to get that done? Or is it simply too early to bear fruits yet.

Thanks and kind regards

Immaturity may be a factor. Height is not a gauge of maturity so regardless of size, your loquat tree may simply need another year or two to mature. You didn't mention whether or not it is flowering. It can't set fruit until it flowers and aside from immaturity, climatic conditions can keep a loquat from flowering and producing fruit. Yours should be in full sunshine and on the south side of your house for best performance. Loquats are self-fertile so a second tree is not necessary for fruiting. Hope your tree flowers and produces fruit soon!
