Great. Will order some then.
The hardest plants to grow are often those most worth growing.

OK, any of you garcinian cowboys know if these are male or female flowers? My 7 - 8 year old charlie brown tree is puping out its first 3 flowers (hopefully more to come!). If you look at the close-up, you can see microscopic ants romping around on the stamens.

The flower on the left looks perfect. The one on the right may be male.

Wow what a beauty.At what age can the tree handle full sun? I hear this plant can handle full sun at younger age than the purple mangosteen

Thanks. I've had mine in full sun nearly its entire life. They seem to tolerate both full sun or shade but better / quicker growth from part shade.

Very hardy. Also withstood temps into the lower 30's for several hours. It's like garcinia intermedia in terms of hardiness.

Thanks! Yah, this cookie monstar is getting a little excited :-). I acquired that tree somewhere around 2009 as a little, barely sprouted seedling. It kicked it in a 3 gallon pot until about 2 years ago when I dropped it into the ground.

This is a Luc's on Imbe done in June of 2016. I think the new world garcinias graft fine on the old world gardenias, at least on the Imbe.

Try the Imbe, they are real cold tolerant.

Congratulations! Maybe the graft was compatible because imbe is not really a old world garcinia in standard sense? it is an African garcinia, not an Asian garcinia. African continent at one time was connected with South American continent. So African garcinias might have closer affinity for that reason? Don't know. Just theorizing.
