Yellow Mombin / Spondias Purpurea (Jocote Corona)
« on: November 15, 2020, 08:31:13 PM »

I was wondering if anyone had any advice on growing a yellow mobin in Socal.

Just so you know, I purchased a 1 foot cutting from a nursery.

However, the branches that were on the cutting, during purchase, were young and falling off.

I don't have to clip them off; as they are touched they fall with ease; the more mature branches stay on.

I am not a plant expert, but this does not seem normal to me.

I really want the yellow mobin to thrive out here.

Please help me with my inexperience.

Lastly, does anyone know where I can buy a cutting from a Jocote Corona/Spondias Pupurea?

Thanks in advance.
