Many people across the world have been trying to know the English name of loquat fruit but none has ever came through the name. Majority don't even know loquat fruits have a Swahili name. According to the research done on Google and other important sources we found out that English name of loquat fruits is Zabibu. This ancient fruit grown in Japan for the past 1,000 years, is probably native to the cooler hill regions of China. For many years, loquats have been grown as ornamentals in California, especially along the southern coastal plains. They do well in a wide variety of soils and climates but are not grown commercially in California. The plant was brought into the country in 1869 by the early missionaries and planted in Mombasa near Fort Jesus. It was then spread to other parts of the country where people started cultivating it as a commercial plant.Loquats are normally bushy, rather dense trees. Their broad, leathery, dark-green leaves are often used in floral arrangements. Easily grown, attractive trees in the garden, they blossom and set fruit from October to February. Selected varieties produce clusters of excellent yellow fruit that mature in the spring and early summer.When growing loquat trees, you should plant the trees in a sunny location at least 25 to 30 feet (7.5 to 9 m.) from structures, electrical lines and other trees.
