(Answer)

Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners with your inquiry about Loquat Trees

Unfortunately if you are planning on planting this species outside, it is not hardy for anywhere in Ontario. It is known to be hardy in zone 7 – 10, in other words can not tolerate temperature below -12C.

You will need to bring the plant indoors in a dormant state, or provide some sort of coverage and protection from these temperatures.

Please find other planting details in the following link.
