Aichacharu first fruits - SFl
« on: April 13, 2019, 04:36:30 PM »
My Aichacharu has a few little fruit on it. 

I was walking the yard and found them growing - never saw it flower.

Itís a good sized tree - maybe 12 ft tall, and wide.  Trunk thicker than a soda can.  I have to look back through my photos and such to determine age in ground.  Guessing 7 or 8 years.  Iíll update with more specifics ..

I looked back through photo's   - Tree is in ground probably about 7 years, but no more than that.

I have 2 in ground, 2nd one is younger and smaller.

Cheers Sleepdoc, I reckon mine must be a chance next season. I have also grafted a couple of Lucís scions from a tree that has produced its first fruit onto my Achacha, will be interesting to watch how this develops
