I planted 12 Ilama seeds from last year and over 100 fresh seeds this year, I soaked seeds in Ga3 solution at 225ppm overnight. 
Almost 2 months from planting my results have been that only 1 seed from last year has sprouted while about a third of the fresh seeds have popped. I left one tray of fresh (30) seeds untreated as my control. None of the untreated seeds have popped.

As for the tree which the seed came from, its planted on private property and the owners/ renters are impolite not wanting to help a fruit collector. I have only been able to get fruit off the ground , I am not willing to cut scions from their tree. So i will have some seedling trees in future but unfortunately  scion wood not at this point.

As for the location of the tree the friend who showed me asked to keep it secret so I will stay true to his request.
