Mine is planted in ground about 30% direct sun 10% filtered sun and 60% shade, planted it out in 2016 as a 3 gal tree, today about 6 x 6 and flowered once, no fruit as of yet. very happy with its growth rate.
I'm hopeful the fruit is worth the wait.
also have a luc's Garcinia, seed grown 2012, 7 foot tall, no flowers or fruit as of yet! same lighting as Achacha

I would say they do best if kept in a pot in partial shade for the first few years. Once the tree is several feet tall it can be planted out in full sun. This is what I did with mine and it has done great. My tree fruited for the first time last year. This year it has about 200 fruits on it which should start ripening in the next couple of weeks. The pics show the progression of my tree over the years.

Wow, I'm in the right place being a mango lover.  I did my first post earlier this week on whether my tree was healthy or not.  I have 2 6ft tall,  year old trees.   Alphonso has pea sized fruit and doing well.  The Kensington has tons of flowers and many are brittle to the touch and fall of?  Took a couple pictures.   I noticed some leaves have spots?

lol  ...........  Sorry to break the bad news....... You posted in the wrong thread   ............. "Achacha Honey Kiss - Garcinia humilis'

Many plants have the same nickname but are not the same variety and often a different genus... I do not think he was referring to mango...
