flowers are androgynous, so in theory you should only need one tree.

but you know how it goes...two trees probably helps increase pollination and fruit set.

Iv noticed there are quite a few hymenaea with very similar fruit. What is the largest or best if the taste is different?
Anyone try these yet?

Not a 100% sure but I believe this may be another Hymenaea sp.

Cool, nice pic :D
This looks maybe abit underspend, all iv seen they wait for the skin to get a dark brown. Or maybe green is the best time for some varieties
