One more try : who is growing Genipa americana?
« on: July 12, 2022, 08:34:18 AM »
Who else is growing Genipa americana in Florida? My tree is small but with the rain it’s growing fast. I planted it under the high canopy of live oaks.

Please, share your observations. What is the lowest temperature that your Genipa americana went through?

Your prayers were answered! 🤭
I have some large trees in Fort Myers, Florida.
They are getting close to flowering. Let’s talk privately.

No. Trees are not male or female. They produce perfect flowers with male and female parts, but are self-incompatible. Therefore, it is needed at least two (2) trees for good fruit production.
Genipa americana known as “jenipapo” is very tropical and cold sensitive. My trees died back few years ago when we had a cold winter in SW Florida. I would recommend it for zone 10 and above.
