Planting

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

Plant the young tree in full sun - as the tree matures it can tolerate a little shade, but needs full sun to become established. Plant in fertile free-draining soil. This is a tropical tree, and if the conditions are not tropical, plant the tree in a container to kept indoors or under glass during cold weather

 

Propagating by seed

From Early Spring TO Late Spring

The seed needs to be removed from the fruit and sown immediately - it does not stay viable for long! Sow the seed in a container containing garden soil or compost that is free-draining, and keep it warm and well watered
