Clean the pulp and place them about 1/4 inch deep in seed raising mix. Place the pot in a mini glasshouse or in a plasic bag in a bright spot out of direct sunlight. Seed are polyembryonic so you'll get 4 or 5 shoots from each seed. Takes about three or four weeks to germinate, so keep damp.

No, only do that with hard coated species like acacia. If fresh just plant as above, if dry (like mail order seeds usually are), a couple of hours in lukewarm water before sowing can plump them up before sowing.

I have a small Japoticoba Tree. In morning shade, good afternoon light and enening Sun. The tree is quite small, about 4 feet, has minor leaves now in the winter. It is about 5 years old and has developed no fruit. Our winter temperature is 60 - 80 degrees, occasionally drops to the 50's for a day or two. It seems to stay alive, but is not growing. Any suggestions?
Tried to send a picture, but was unable to get it attached. Please provide me with information as to how the tree should grow (look like). Thank you,

Jaboticaba's are very slow growing. I think they like lots of sun. they are a tropical tree and so don't like low temps. I'm northern Australia and it doesn't get lower than 5 degrees centigrade. I have one that has just started fruiting last year and it's somewhere around 10 years old. It could have done better as it has competition from other trees.
