Unknown Plant....:( HELP!

gheorgheni, Romania

Hello! I would like to know what this plant is? Its leaves are a bit similar to that of the coffee tree's, but they are very harsh and hairy and hard. I brought it from Greece 2 years ago; it had grown along a roadside.

Thank you very much!

Hi Cath133n, Its a loquat (Eriobotrya japonica). Tasty fruit.

(Zone 1)

Looks like Loquat to me also. There are eight listed in the Plant Files database:[genus]=Eriobotrya so I'm not sure which variety you have there.

This is the one that grows here in my area: My neighbor has these trees all along the fence in the backyard and they sprout up in my lawn on occasion. The fruits on her trees are a small variety but tasty. A lady I worked with many years ago used to make a jam with the fruit and she said the fare it took lots of the little fruits to make a batch of the jam.

Northumberland, United Kingdom(Zone 9a)

It won't be hardy outdoors in Romania, unfortunately
