Byrsonima crassifolia how many years till fruiting?
« on: March 24, 2020, 03:44:54 PM »
How many years till fruiting for Byrsonima crassifolia is considered average? My tallest is now about 6 feet tall and I have found little substantial information on the average year for fruiting from a germinated seed.

Any info would be appreciated.

About 2 to 3 years. But the fruit does not appear to be worth the trouble.

Thank you!!

It may be because they are container bound that I have not seen fruit or flowers. I will remedy this and see!

I am hoping to use the fruits to feed turtles since it has a high calcium to phosphorous ratio and small enough seeds that will not harm them.

It is container bound and is in my Cousins place, where it is hot and dry. Mine has still not flowered, even though it is of same age and container bound. But then my place is not very warm and is very wet.
