Looks like nutmeg possibly. Are the leaves fragrant when you crush them?

Same way i airlayer other trees with total success: wrap moistened sphagnum moss with aluminum foil.I'm trying to root some from cuttings now. No idea how hard that is. I'll try with the one fruit I haven't eaten. Good luck with seeds.Tried cuttings with no luck. Air layers also failed for me.
Hi Oscar. I'm pretty surprised you didn't have any success with airlayering. Every single time mine have rooted within a couple wks at the most. This is a very easy tree to layer in my experience. What is your method?
i treid 2 air-layers , and several cuttings all failedIt seems that seeds need a lot of light to sprout. That is i guess why you never find any volunteer seedlings under the tree.
all my seeds failed as well.
i tried 2 root-cuttings and both succeeded.
unfortuneatly i had given them away then my tree was 20ft tall
we had temps of 26F a few weeks ago, and eithe rthe tree is dead
or, its taking its time coming back.
there is a little green under the bark near the roots, but ALL of the branches and everything over 2ft high
is brown under the bark.
not sure why i never got seeds to take, there are hundereds of seeds in each fruit.
but not 1 seedling even under the tree.
i love the flavor though.
my dog even eats the lower hanging fruit.
eveyone that comes to my house has a couple to taste and loves them.
