I did try growing it - It did fine for me in a self watering pot for about 6 months. Then I moved it to the ground -> DIED. Tried again straight into the ground -> died again. So I think it is fussy about soil - needs light free draining like you get in potting mix. If you're really keen on success, I would suggest you really improve the soil. That's all I can offer cause I killed mine. :) Good luck with it and let us know how yours grows.
Oh no! Do you have clay soil? I have picked out a spot for it in the same bed as a peach tree and guava tree which are doing well. That spot has a loamy soil. I have read alot of people who say theirs died due to being too exposed to harsh sun and wind. I am confused about what soil type they like. Some say they are not fussy, others say they like acid soil.
Mine is clay soil so yours should do fine in a lighter mix. I also read about the sun issue. I had mine (both in the pot and in the ground) where they would get morning sun only and in the pot they thrived. By the way, check out this:
You had asked about Keri berries the other day and I said mine hadn't fruited yet but today LOOK!! I was walking around taking photo's and the first flower buds! So excited!
Congratulations Susan that is AWESOME! I am very jealous. They look so beautifully healthy and such a pretty pink. I hope you get fruit soon.... Please let me know what it tastes like.
I am also very jealous of your peanut butter fruit.
I had a few fruits from mine while it was in a self watering pot. Then I put it in the ground in a very protected spot with morning sun only but a very dry coarse soil..... And it hasn't fruited since. It does flower though.
