In FLORIDA: How tall is you Mamoncillo?
« on: May 15, 2019, 05:37:02 PM »
For those of you in Florida, who grow mamoncillo (Melicoccus bijugatus) - how tall is your tree and what age?

Thank you.

I have a small tree inFl, but I really donít know much about them, I hear u need Male And Female,  and they take for Ever to produce fruit , I do  remember that when I used to climb an old Mamonsillo tree at my Grandmas house, the tree was at least  60-70 feet tall no easy task to get  Mamon but it was definitively worth it when I got some. Maybe some of the members can share some light on this question
