Chupa Chupa (Quararibea cordata) in Southern California?
« on: August 25, 2023, 03:32:23 AM »
I'm just wondering how difficult would it be to grow Chupa Chupa (Quararibea cordata) in Southern California? I read that it can grow in Zone 10 and a few have been grown successfully in Florida.

Waste of time in Southern California. You need warm nights and humidity over 60% on average. I would say its northern range is coastal central Florida in micro climate pockets.

My friends tree is close to fruiting in Florida, beautiful tree with HUGE leaves. Not something to plant unless you have the room for it.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
