seedlings are a possibility but it takes way too long ( up to 17 years ! personal experience ) to get fruits. Also when starting from a seedling only about half of the trees ( in the best case ! ) will produce fruits. What can be done to save time and efforts, is to graft the seedlings when they are 1 or 2 years old with selected varieties. There are many all around and the most important is to select scions from trees that produce good fruits you like and that fruit in similar conditions than the ones you have.

no it is different. There are many Syzygium cumini ( jamelonier or jamblon ) over here and I can tell they are quite different.

I don't think it can be lakoocha. I have ordered seeds of a.rigidus in the past, but cannot find any pics of young tree/leaves to compare.

You are right, this is pedalai. Thanks for the ID. Hopefully it will fruit soon although I don't really know how long it takes on average to start fruiting. Any info welcome. That tree is very similar ( leaves ) to the one at fairchild.

from my own experience, from the 5 bushes I have, grown from seeds, they started flowering at 2years but fruiting only at 3 years. So you should get fruits next time they will flower. They are very decorative, flowers smell really nice and fruits are lovely. It is tasty but not so much flesh, too many seeds and often difficult to open without making a mess.

Quite an interesting one then. Hopefully someone will be able to identify it accurately so then I can register it in the collection with the right label. From what I remember those trees are from seeds I got from Indonesia about 4 years ago. But as I have many all over the property, I lost labels for some of them including that one.

Thanks for the id and the advice. How long it takes usually to start fruiting ? As they get huge, what about pruning or topping them ?

Another artocarpus I lost id. Just can't remember what it is but it is not a bread fruit. Could it be a marang as well ? That tree is also about 4 years old.

Thanks for the info but I would like to give a quick update as I have one graft that took between persimmon and mabolo. I don't know if it will last until it can bear fruits, but so far so good. Will post a picture of the result asap.

How do you multiply that tree ? any seeds ? fruits ? i could not find any seeds into those supposed fruits. Actually I reckon those yellow ping pong balls are not fruits but flowers ? right ?

Thanks for the comment but I checked on google and pictures of the fruits/trees I have found are quite different. I don't think it is bombax ceiba.

thanks, finally got the ID using google. It is  Stemmadenia donnell-smithii
Got that info too :
The Dogbane Family is a big one, and one feature many of its species have is that they're filled with milky white latex. Most plants exuding white latex traditionally are considered medicinal and/or poisonous, and that's the case with Stemmadenia donnell-smithii. The latex has been used to reduce swellings, cure external tumors, and in neighboring Quintana Roo people have been seen daubing the white latex over the breathing holes of parasites that burrow into the skin, suffocating them and making them easier to expel. Chemically, the tree's latex has been shown to contain a number of powerful alkaloids.
