Loquat trees can be hardy to about zone 7, or even a bit into zone 6. The
rub is that they bloom in January and early February, so it's nearly
impossible to get set. The California Rare Fruit Growers have members who
have done more with loquats than most people in NAFEX I've met, and some
have varieties that bloom over a long enough period that a few blossoms
manage to set even in places where loquats wouldn't be expected to fruit.
The trees are beautiful ornamentals, no matter what.

I've bought grafted loquat trees from a nursery in Florida. I can give
you their name off list if you want. They have the "Oliver" variety,
and the trees that I've bought are in good shape generally upon arrival
- shipped via FedEX. I don't think they fit your requirement for
northern grown however.
