E. japonica: Loquat (Eriobotrya) - A large-leaved shrub from Japan; in England tender, and only suitable for walls in warm and sheltered places.
Its very large leaves are like those of the Loquat, and are of silvery whiteness.
Of these the apple and the pear are now very inferior in Corfu; the others thrive well and are accompanied by all the fruit trees known in southern Europe, with addition of the Japanese medlar (or loquat), and, in some spots, of the banana.
Among fruit trees, besides the wild fruits already mentioned, are the pineapple, mango, papua, guava, grenadilla, rose apple, custard apple, soursop, loquat, naartje, shaddock and citrous fruits.
The loquat, an introduction from China, thrives admirably.
