    Do loquates survive there? A tree that issues a football shaped small fruit, yellow, about the diameter of a mans thumb? Also known as a Japanese plumb.

    I grew up in N. Ga....I don't ever recall seeing them ....but don't take that as gospel.

    Central Georgia is about as far north as they'll typically survive in my experience. There's a loquat (no 'e') at the Hagan farm in Bulloch county. Been there for as long as I can recall. Never ripened any fruit that I can recall either.

    I live in North Georgia and we don't have any around here.
