Changsha is giving several seedlings per seed, most of them will be  true copies of mother plant.
Best regards,

I planted a seedling Changsha back in 2012. Itís now at least 13 feet tall, and just produced its first three fruits this year. My fruit had 25 seeds, and I planted them.

I have a small grafted changsha that I bought from Stan McKenzie. I will plant it out this coming spring. I want to try and grow from seed also.

Quite impressive for a seedling so big tree and fruit set after 7 years in zone 6b.
I can see you cover them, so I guess a lot of work involved.

Citradia, looks like you have to build a higher frame for your Changsha.  I agree with lebmung, you did an exceptional job with your seedling Changsha.

Thanks guys. I was going to leave her to the elements this year and then replace it next spring with a grafted Changsha, but since it made three fruit ( two still small and green), I decided it was begging me to not let it freeze to death, so I decided to cover it again this winter.  Iím learning the hard way to only plant trees grafted on FD so theyíre easier to cover in winter.

Poncirusguy, is your Fukushu flowering and fruiting yet?  Also, what is the note count straight up the main stem to the tree's top .

It has been clearly shown that  later applications of low biuret urea around march 15th decreases the abscission  of young fruit, thus helps the tree to retain the young fruitlets the tree is trying to produce.  This should greatly help young trees trying to set and retain their first crops.
