Large loquat tree growing in Phoenix Arizona

Pictured below is a large loquat tree grown by Berto Bertuccio at his house in Phoenix. This tree was grown from a seed and is planted in full sun in the lawn. Berto never fertilizes the tree and waters it by soaking it with the hose for 24 hours, once a week. The result is a yearly crop of delicious loquats.

Berto has been the owner of an award winning Italian restaurant in Phoenix for over 23 years.
