Is Pungara dioecious?
« on: October 27, 2023, 01:16:05 PM »
Is garcinia macrophylla dioecious? Im talking about the one from Jim West. The one they call Pungara. I only have 1 tree that is 4ft tall.

No. It can make fruit on its own. It's Garcinia macrophylla.

most garcinias are polygamodioecious= there are male and female trees however males will also have a few female flowers thus produce a few fruits on their own. females could have a few male flowers too...but either way it's best to have both male-female tree if you want a lot of fruit.

A dioecious species, both male and female forms usually need to be grown if fruit and seed are required[336
]. At least some dioecious Garcinia species, however, are able to produce fertile seed even in the absence of fertilization (asexual reproduction). Such seeds would be expected to be genetically identical to the parent[1798
]

Inaccurate information. Have a lone fruiting tree here and have harvested and sprouted seed from another lone tree that used to be at Naples Botanical Garden (sourced from Jim West) before hurricane Irma killed it.
