Customer Comments on Capulin Cherry
Possibly the most propogated thing in the world, grows in brisbane hilltop shade, just take a branch cutting, doesn't have to be a tip , put into potting mix, perhaps 80 % success and survival rate. Grows 3m per year, Especially if watered or stormed on. | Johnmichael Dique - Kedron , Brisbane, QLD 22-Feb-2007
Recently purchased a home and proprty just outside Cuenca, Ecuador. Has a couple of old Capulin trees. After a little research, I'm very glad to know they are so easy to propagate. We go back south soon; I'm anxious to get a few more capulin trees started | Michael Barratt - San Cristobal, Azuay, EC 04-Oct-2007
Ive seen them grow incredibly fast even in limestone soils at 40 degrees C in Esperance WA, or in clayish/gravel soils in Nannup. However ive lost 2 so far here in teh east, i believe due to poor drainage. im trying again with some seedlings. | Reville - Tabulam, NSW 08-Jul-2008
Got a 3 yr old one just producing fruit now. They font taste very nice but most of my now-tasty fruit trees tasted a bit weird in their first year. Grows fast. | Andy - Maccrae, Vic. Aus, VIC 29-Jan-2011
