Oscars is a far better choice to get seeds of Lecythis. Betholletia excelsa can take anywhere from 12 yrs + before it produces or alternatively get an air layer or marcott but that's gonna be major hard.  I don't know why I have it in my yard because I will probably be deceased by the time my produces for sure.
What part of Florida are you? Have both species in different sizes available.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: White Jade Pineapple

Sad sad day today. I just got back from Thanksgiving dinner at the in laws house and found my White Jade pineapple fruit had snapped off at the stalk. We have had unusually warm weather, it was 91F, and it appearsappears that the warmth stimulated excessive growth of the many tops which caused the stalk to snap. This fruit still had about another month before it is supposed to be ripe according to the 6 month rule.

At least I got 6 large clones from the base of the fruit and another 9 smaller clones from the base of the crown. This fruit is still very green and has pointy eyes so Iím not expecting much in terms of sweetness and flavor from it. If itís too sour, Iíll just take a miracle fruit before eating the fruit.

In hind site, I should have supported the Fruit when I saw it leaning over a bit. Iím hanging it upside down for one day before I cut it up because it still has a large piece of stalk attached to it which may still provide a bit of sugar.

It was about a foot tall when I originally got it from Montoso Gardens.

Wow, very impressive. Good luck with fruiting

Louisport, to bad you did not mention wanting a Dekpon seed before the Citrus Expo.  The Dekopon on the judging table had a couple plump seeds.  I could have taken one and sent it to you.   I have two Dekopon trees, one growing in the ground, and one as a container tree.  If I find a seed I'll post it here.

Hey Forum,

Anyone in FL actually growing and fruiting this? See there are a few places to purchase this but have never seen any growers talking about or pics of locally grown fruit. Iím almost considering growing just as the leaves are super unique and pretty to me as another tree in my yard.

Yes I did, purchased from spicy exotics... one measly cutting, which I rooted and it produced a few shoots which I then cut off further and rooted more. Now I have about 5 1ft long rooted cuttings going to be a while till any fruit.
