Is Kukui self-fertile?
« on: February 20, 2017, 12:05:34 PM »
So, I have two kukui (Aleurites moluccanus) trees in my greenhouse.  But I am full to the gunwales and am trying to do some thinning. Do I need two kukui to get nuts, or are they self-fertile?

Thanks!

Carolyn

I just have one and it produces like crazy. It's a fast grower here and wants to get big. We butcher it and it keeps producing.
