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.
