Environment However chilling beyond –3ºC kills its flowers during winter, but the tree is cold hardy up to –10ºC, therefore this fruit is grown in the climatic zones of Pakistan where the temperature ranges between 38 to 25ºC in the summer with humidity up to 75% and in winter it ranges between 20 to 3ºC.
Watering Newly planted loquat trees should be watered at planting and every other day for the first week or so and then 1 to 2 times a week for the first couple of months. For the first 3 years, water once a week during prolonged dry periods.
