Cola Nut Species
« on: July 21, 2019, 09:36:20 PM »
Is anyone growing any cola nuts besides the common Cola Nitidia and cola acuminata?

I am growing cola pachycarpa, cola cauliflora, cola ficifolia, cola lepidota, Cola lateritia, Cola laurifolia, cola subbostifolia, cola chlamydantha, and many more.

I'm interested in anyone else's experiences whose grown these, anymore information on growth habit, and anyone's whose tried the fruits. I was told by someone in Cameroon that the fresh pods at least of cola lepidota can be stored for weeks or even months so they might have some large scale potential.

Still interested in anyone else growing any, haven't seen any fruiting Cola species in the US besides Acuminata and Nitida.

Try sending a PM to forum member HIfarm. I know he is growing several different cola nut species.
