Thanks Peter, good to know. Should I mound up mulch (to cover them) or just mulch as usual?

Starting to harvest

So how large is your Kwai Muk.  Is it n the ground?  How long did you have it before it set fruit?

I just set mine into the ground here two weeks ago.  They came out of three gallon pots and are both about 3-1/2 feet tall right now and are pushing new leaves.

We're in a drought situation right now in west central Florida so I've been watering them a lot and they have not evidenced any wilting so far.

I'm hoping that mine aren't going to take forever to bloom and set some fruit.

It was planted in the ground 2015.
First fruit 2017

I bought some round (3cm/1.18inch) ABS plastic tags with a hole that I screwed to the trunk. I used the iPhone app NFC tools to write some info about the tree.

What I originally wanted was credit card sized NFC tags with thermal printed information also for each tree. I didn’t know which printer would work with an ink that lasts outside.
That way I could visually identify and not always use my phone.

Is Anyone in Hawaii growing Parkia speciosa, the bitter bean, stink bean?

Do you have pictures of the flowers or leaves?

Maybe this can help.

Buy a compost thermometer. Reotemp makes good ones.

I always just press tropical fruit seeds onto the soil. Never covering them. I had 100% germination with keel seeds sent from Oscar at fruitlovers. The seeds get lifted into the air before the leaves open.

I think your seeds are just getting dry to fast.
I would try a humidity dome or tent.
