@cyndi they grow well in containers. I have a couple on my patio. I've been successful at leaf tip & branch cuttings.

Thank you Maggie that's so kind of you. Didnt know you could grow them from leaf tips as well. Tried a branch cutting (only had one) but it didnt take. Good that they can grow in containers as well that's how I do all my fruit trees since this isnt my own personal property.

@cyndi seeds come up quickly, takes about 3-5 yrs to produce, or at least here.

Sounds about right. I cant remember but is it a male/female flowers on same tree or do they need multiple trees for fruit to produce?
