Just noticed this gal flowering for the first time. Lots of bees so hopefully it’ll set some seed.

Nice Matty!  What cold temperatures has it seen?  Any less hardy than regular E. edulis?

I reliably get down to 42f a handful of times every winter.  It’s seen 38f a few times over the years. So I can’t really comment on how it does with real cold.

Get ready for purple hands when cleaning the seed or even collecting them. I have had them hit me in the face when sawing them out of the tree and they left purple spots. Beautifully grown

Nicest one I've seen here in So Cal.

I have four in the ground from 1gls.

So far they seem to be pretty slow.

Was there a point when yours clicked in?

How big was it when you planted it out?

Was it robust from the get go?

I've had smoothies made from the fruit that were really good!  Worth the purple stains in my opinion!

It was a skinny little weakling. I don’t remember exactly but I probably got it up to a 5 gallon size before I planted it out but from what I remember it always grew at a nice pace.I don’t remember exactly but I probably got it up to a 5 gallon size before I planted it out but from what I remember it always grew at a nice pace.
