healthy grumichama but no flowers or fruit
« on: July 10, 2020, 10:13:28 AM »
I have a grumichama that i originally had in a large pot for at least 8 yrs. and planted in ground 3 yrs ago. It is healthy, putting on new growth continuously. It has never flowered ?!?!

Am hoping 1 of you Eugenia gurus can suggest how to force some fruit.

Also want to do some pruning, but thought it would be smart to try air-layering some new trees first.

Any advise appreciated. Happy Gardening !

Is it a seedling? They sometimes take a long time to fruit. I got a 3 gallon at PIN last year and it already flowered.

I bought a red Grumichama from Luc (Vallarta Port México)  in October 2008 of 3 feet and I planted it immediately, fertilized 4 times a year but never flowers...
