Loquat blooms in late fall forming terminal panicles on shoots mostly formed during spring and after a period of summer rest. Macroscopic evaluations reveal that panicle formation initiates in Spain during September; however, flower induction and initiation are not, so far, properly dated. Modifications of the flowering dates require of a more profound knowledge of the evolution taking place within the reproductive buds. With the aim to document the anatomical changes leading to the formation of the terminal panicles, a developmental study was ...
