How's the taste on these particular fruits? More sweet or more sour?

How long did it take to get the plant in the pic to first bear fruit?

Hello,

Yes they are Eugenia luschnathiana, I have two trees that bear right now. One is a little sweeter than the other.

No they are self fruiting, and fruit pretty quick, just a couple of years.

Hey Mark , been very occupied and only noticed your post today ...then I noticed ' USA only ' ...I respect that , no problem ...If it was somebody else I'd be pissed and sue for discrimination ....LOL......
So...since I can't get your seeds that produce in 3 some years can you give me some advise ? I have one struggling tree , lots of die back , full sun , probably close to 10 years old , flowered a couple of times , no fruit set , regular watered ....did better when it was still in a large planter . WTF am I doing wrong ? Hope to hear from you my friend . BTW great tip on grafting Luc's to Imbe  .

It works both ways, though i think folks might go ballistic if your Luc's Garcinia seed sales were limited to Mexico only.
It's probably just to shoo away riff faff and does not apply to friends & family.
I'm glad i read this though, Im going to try grafting Luc's on Imbe , that makes a lot of sense for speeding up growth.

Sorry that you took me to mean that I can't send seeds to countries out of the USA to people as "riff raff" Mexico is 15 minutes from my house and I can have one of my friends mail the seeds to someone in Mexico usually without any problems anytime. The reason I don't usually send seeds out of USA is the packages may not make it to their final destination. Another reason is if they get to the country they get destroyed. I sent some pepper seeds to my friend in Fiji and the Ag department confiscated the seeds.

The reply below was not meant for you. Yes, they are luschnatiana.
Also, the fruit is not very sweet, it is kind of like an apricot with a little acidity. By the way, sorry for being ignorant where is Udon?

Folks shouldn’t take it personal when we (USA members) refuse to send seeds or scions overseas. We know from experience of the delays and the seizures. Too much of a hassle for something we have no control
