    The loquat German is unpretentious and suitable for exotic lovers who do not like to spend a lot of time caring for plants. it
    the tree reaches a height of 4-8 m. If you want to grow it in the form of a bush, you need to periodically prune the tops.
    The loquat German is more winter-hardy than, for example, the medlar of the Japanese, and withstands cold to -NNUMX °. In May-June beautiful flowers blossom on the tree. Then there are small fruits that ripen by autumn. To make them less tart, you should remove them after the first frost.

    When planting the seedlings, a wide, not very deep fossa should be dug, since the root system of the plant is superficial. In the groove add mineral fertilizers (according to instructions), half a bucket of humus and a couple of handfuls of bone meal. Next to the seedlings, you need to drive in the support pillar. A grown-up tree in autumn should be fed with phosphorus-potassium fertilizer and should be covered with a fertilizer by humus.

      HC Lyubov Inkhanovna - it's hard to tell something without seeing the plant but there is an opinion that the air is too dry - try to spray regularly - medlar likes dampness and warmth.

      Perhaps this is a bacterial burn, but without a photo it is not certain.

    I was interested in this tree for a long time because of tasty fruits and its resistance to diseases.
    When the name “medlar” is mentioned, they usually imagine Japanese medlar - a beautiful evergreen tree, whose homeland is Japan and China. Less well-known medlar is German - a small deciduous tree growing in the forests of Europe. It is quite finicky and grows well only in dry, sunny places and on slightly acidic soil. We tried to grow this tree on our site. And we did it!
    Outwardly, the medlar tree is similar to a quince tree, but smaller in size. Flowers are very similar to rose hips.
    In October - November we harvest, and every year abundant. We use the fruits ourselves and share with others.
    I was convinced that it is not difficult to grow a loquat, only the place she needs to pick up is dry and sunny. Because of resistance to diseases and pests, the tree does not even need to be sprayed. The only thing we do is pruning to give it shape.
    For the winter we do not hide, since the loquat is grown even in cold regions.
    Its fruits are fresh in the fresh form, but we like them. We are eagerly waiting for them to ripen. The part is stored 3-5 days (softer), the rest is frozen.
    We use them and for therapeutic purposes as an anti-inflammatory agent for gargling with angina. For this we prepare the infusion from 1 art. spoons of raw materials for 200 ml of boiling water (we insist before cooling).
    I read that from the pulp of ripe fruits alcoholic tinctures are prepared for the treatment of bronchial asthma. As you can see, the plant is both beautiful and useful.
