I have two of your Casimiroa's. Golden globe and Lemon Gold.

I read that seedlings are not true to type and I cannot see a graft on my plants, so I was wondering how you propogate them?

Also they have not done well. They have been setback by heat last summer and frost this winter. Are they ussually slow to establish?

Hi David, My understanding is that no , seedlings do not come true. I had two casimiroas planted and they were doing well, then with the drought we had some vicious frosts (we normally just get a few mild ones)and they were burnt back to the ground and we thought we,d lost them.When the weather warmed up they shot again and have grown well again. I spoke to Perrys nursery where I got them and they said it was worth persisting with the regrowth (which of course is no longer a grafted variety) because seedlings usually produce very acceptable fruit.The tree that gets the most water has grown the most (funny that).We have given them dynamic lifter and a thick hay mulch in the summer and on the advice of Perrys a handfull or two of complete mineral mix. Perrys certainly know their fruit and give very good advice.The casimiroa I tasted there was superb and the tree is well worth persisting with. We garden on a north facing slope with well drained limey soil. Hope that helps.Jantina
