A New Collection Added

USDA-ARS, NCGR at Davis is adding a collection of Eriobotrya (loquat) to our list of genera for preservation.  It is small right now and the plants are not yet old enough to collect budwood from but in a few years we should have some interesting varieties of loquat available for distribution.
