Fastest-sprouting marulas so far...
« on: July 20, 2020, 01:04:44 PM »
I just planted some of my 7 year old marula seeds, and the first ones sprouted after only 8 days.  Fastest time I have had so far! Three eyes, and all three germinated.

I am getting way better at prying the eyes out of the shells without damaging the papery cover on the seeds, but alas, I am not getting better at preventing stab wounds to my fingers and hands.  The only luck I have had with prying the eye out is with my REALLY sharp pocket knife.  Ouch.

I am trying the theory that seeds with an odd number of eyes are males, and even numbers are females, so I chose my seeds very carefully, and will be marking them accordingly as they grow.  The first ones up are males, if the theory is correct!
