One of the most versatile fruit trees is the Loqaut Tree, it will grow in most areas of Australian from Queensland to Tasmania and fruits in late spring to early summer. Found in many older gardens Loqaut trees can reach over 5m and with attractive glossy foliage are useful in the larger garden. Although they will reach a good size they are also easy to prune and keep under control. A few varieties are available including Thames Pride and Herd’s Mammoth.
These trees require little care once established other than pruning to size, removal of dead wood and watering during very dry spells. Fruit can be eaten fresh when ripe or used in jams or preserves.
