Hovenia dulcis Japanese raisin tree growers?
« on: October 30, 2021, 03:12:03 PM »
Anyone have any growing experience with the Japanese raisin tree? Since I cannot find a live plant I planned on ordering seeds online and germinating them myself. Any advice would be great! I am in zone 8b

EDIT: I meant to move this to the tropical section as this is frost tender

It is very far from frost-tender, so you're in the right spot. :)

I Have one smaller tree living outside in my garden in the southern tip of Sweden, we have frost but not that much. I planted out last year and it has pushed very well this spring.  Would also to know more about how many years for it to mature,

Some review of the fruit stem:

They taste a little like peanuts.
