Title: Diospyros Preussii
Post by: Sanddollarmoon on November 18, 2013, 12:15:53 PM
Has anybody heard of this, or has it growing? The fruit are pink, with exotic maroon… sepals?

I have ordered seeds for this tree, but the internet is rather lacking for this african species. My questions are
a) are these fruit edible, and if so, are they palatable?
b) is the tree dioecious, or require cross pollination?
c) How long do they, on average, take to maturity, and their average bearing age?

Thanks in advance!

Two sexes.  Mine had deep tap roots.  Mine died, maybe water related.
