Nice performance. How tall it is? Did you fertilize it heavily to reach this result?

This tree has received the same soil mix, espoma fertilizer and azomite like all my trees.

Looking good!! Whatís your fertilizer schedule been like after you germinated it until now?

I add a handful of Espoma plant tone and a spoonful of azomite every few months. I mix azomite and espoma in the soil mix to germinate the seeds. The amount in the soil mix for germinating can vary depending on what is available for purchase. I donít think that has enhanced the tree to fruit early as all my others guanabnas  get the exact same fertilizer schedule.

As luck would have it, I have a second seedling tree that has decided to flower. No fruit yet but the flowers are setting. This is from a different batch of seeds of Vieques type muricata.
