Rose Apple / Syzygium jambos
« on: December 03, 2020, 01:10:47 PM »
I was surprised to see this little tiny thing flowering it's about 9 to 10 inches tall



Flowers also came out really small compared to the normal size

How old is your tree???I have one that is a little bigger from seed that is about 1.5 years old. Would be surprising if it sets fruit.

I honestly don't know how old it is but normally it need to be about three to four years old to begin producing normally.
The only reason I even found out I had that one flowering because I was showing a customer the big tree I have . I have a lot of little baby trees under the big tree .
And my big tree flowering for the second time this year it's not normal .

I've never come across that either.  But I almost always pull the seedlings.  I hope you plan on keeping it separate and seeing if it develops a track record of doing anything unusual. 

It might be just a fluke year; but then it could be genetically different in some cool way(s).

"Anomaly" Rose Apple :) . Very cool.
The Earth laughs in flowers. And bear gifts through fruits.
No where to plant it ...but at least I got it. ;)
F*ck squirrels and deers

Just curious: is it anywhere near that chunk of uranium you mentioned earlier?
