@Pushkraj it has bloomed every 7-8 months. Laat fruit was lixked early June 2016. I let them stay on tree until yellow deepens. The tiniest of new buds are beginning to emerge.

@lovestogarden I wasnt sure what this was when i got it. Tiny and ornamental, I had no idea it was a fruit tree until it began blooming in middle of winter! I saved seeds from it's all it's fruit this year and would love to see some successful sprouts.
