it's a tall tree, it will be hard to keep in a pot forever...but I have seen them fruiting in a 15 gal pot...at about 6-8ft tall.

From seed, Guabiju usually takes at least 6 years to fruit. ;)
There are reports of dwarf vars that can fruit in 03 years, but is hard to find one of these! Personally, I have no lucky.

Thanks Adam and Cassio
I thought it was a small tree , so I planted in a pot and thought the tree bore fruit in 3 or 4 years .
Now I 'm going to get out of the pot and plant them on land.
Thanks
