I have friends in the miltary who have recently moved to Texas. In their backyard is a plant they asked me if I could ID. Since I imagine it is one that will not grow where I live, I do not recognize it. Was hoping that some of you nice southern folks might help me to help them. Thanks so much.

Dear Katrina, Thanks for the help. Persoanlly I have NEVER heard of a loquat before your post. That is why I asked for help. Will go look it up in one of my garden books though. Thanks. Sandy

They usually are not that bushy when small.

We have some that full that are triple trunks in 15 gal containers... If they get pruned to stay as a shrub its possible or if someone might have mowed it over young which inspired multiple shoots

Sure looks like a loquat to me too. The fruits are edible, but I don't know how exactly you eat them.

Loquats are delicious...you eat them when they turn a golden color...they are sweet and sour at the same time to me! I have a tree in my garden in Lebanon. The fruits get ready in September there.
