Dear Experts,My question is do loquat trees need to be polinated every year?In other words I got a cutting off my brothers tree which was already polinated,Will it now produce fruit without anymore polinating?
Thanks for your time,
Sincerely , MARK...

Some loquat trees are self-fruitful and others need a second variety of loquat nearby for cross-pollination. It sometimes works if you take a flowering branch from another loquat tree and lay it on the ground near your loquat tree. With any luck the bees will visit open flowers from both the branch and your tree and transfer pollen. If it works, you'll get fruits on your tree. Hope it works for you!
