One of my favorite trees - hardy, aesthetic, compact, and delicous fruits.  The large leaf version tens to be less wind resistant than the small leaved version.

Be patient with this one as I have had one for five years and now finally fruited. Tastes yummy like Mangosteen!!!. Growing tips - Keep well watered in dry summer weather and don't panic if most leaves drop each spring as new leaves develop quickly.
