I just put this soncoya in a 45 gallons.  I dont know how big it will get.  I dont even know if it will fruit since i am i. San diego.

I got a coconut cream from him and it is doing well and it is flushing new foliage.  I buy my mango on ebay.  It is a little cheaper and it is deliver to my door.

The only place that I know of that sells Mango trees on Manila rootstock is Mimosa Nursery in Anaheim or LA.  Anyone know of any others?  The problem with Mimosa is not everything is labeled.  I am afraid to buy from them.

You can buy manilla trees anywhere.  Best option is to buy one and graft onto it.  Or grow some seeds and graft them.

I got a winters, ugly betty, edward, sweet tart, diamond.  They are all growing pretty nicely but the root stock does have some small cracks.

Soncoya seeds soaking in 150ppm GA3 for 24hrs. to hopefully help speed up germination. I'll post when the seeds sprout.

I think it depends on the variety, some are more vigorous than others.  Which varieties did you get?

The varieties growing the best for me are Lemon Merengue, Lemon Zest, Phoenix, and Fruit Punch.  Those varieties are growing well, several vegetative flushes, no flowering, all planted this March.  The varieties that flower repeatedly are Malika, Carrie, Sweet Tart and Nam Doc Mai

(Lemon drop) Like a weed in full sun here. Smaller tree than Achacha, fruits faster and at smaller tree size. Fruits developing more often than not throughout the year.

Achacha one crop per year and tree needs to be more mature to fruit.

Both appreciate some shade when young.

Thatís some great info. Iím growing some palms in 25gal so Iíll place the seedling Garcinias amongst them to provide light shading while they are young. Thank you
