Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Requires continually moist soil from germination through cultivation.

Planting & Growing: Sprinkle tiny seed on surface of potting soil and press firmly, then keep evenly moist and in the light until germination (about 3 weeks). Pot up annually into larger pots until ready to plant outdoors. Maintain in a pot for first year.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest after at least one year. Trees regenerate quickly after the first harvest. Yield improves over time as root foundation improves.
