How does one go about germinating Eriobotrya japonica? I have six freshly harvested seeds and I live in Florida.

Plant them.

Loquat germinate best from fresh seed so do not try to store them. Plant in free draining potting mix and keep relatively warm - I assume you can manage that in Florida.
Just keep the pot(s) slightly damp until they sprout. Too much water may lead to fungal infections.

Thank you! I will do that tomorrow as it is rather late.
