Luc's Garcinia

    10 responses

Grant starts with ...
Just wondering if any one knows how Luc's Garcinia goes fruit wise if grown on their own, do they need a pollenator? And how long it might take for a seedling to produce fruit in sub-tropics? Cheers

Yes, they are self pollinating. All Garcinia are painfully slow growing, but Luc's seems to be especially fiendish. You are looking at ten years, in all probability. I have some 4 year olds that are still only 1ft high.

Long wait, incredible payoff. What that wait buys you just might be the best fruit on Earth.

My biggest one is barely 1m after 2.5 years in the ground and 2 others are 60 cm after 10 months. Madrono,gardneriana brasiliense, macrophylla,bicuda and others from South America are much faster in my climate.

If you try and push them with fertilizer, you will either kill them, or end up with deformed growth. Apply small amounts of gentle fertilizer irregularly.

Waiting is the game.

Hi Mark, I originally planned to get seeds from Luc, but ended up getting 2 seedlings from Daleys. Both are in the ground and growing steadily.
I’ll put out the feelers for you but they are pretty rare as i’m sure you know. I can only suggest ordering seeds from Luc, waiting for a Daley’s seedling, or just what you are already doing. Good luck mate

Hi Grant.
Thanks for the reply and the help. I actually bought seeds from Luc last year, but the seeds were confiscated by Australian customs because of the confusion with the species name! I'm guessing Daley's must get seeds domestically?..
I'm on Daley's notification list, but just thought i'd seek out other sources given the rarity and demand for the plants.
Cheers
Mark

None are fruiting in Australia yet. No undescribed species are allowed into Australia so call them something. The official bicon Garcinia list is riddled with errors anyway.
