I've never tried to grow them.

I always get mine from the candy counter at the movie theater....

A friend of mine is growing them in croatia outdoors along with olivetrees, figues, kaki, rosmary and so on.

Its growing great in mediterranian climate.

There everybody whos owning a garden is growing them. Also in pots. The ground there is pretty loamy with high ironoxide content... red earth.

Also great for growing wine.


I know them fresh- very good a bit apple-like and crunchy, or they dump it into schnaps to preserve the fruits, and eat them when they´re soaken. Also the so flavoured schnaps(I think its actually brandy) is really nice.


These fruits are about two years in alcohol now:

They are awesome fruits. We have a couple, ten yrs old. Ton's of tasty and unique fruit. Yes, they are pricey but they grow babies from the fruit that falls onto the ground and you can transplant those or you can plant the pits and they grow nicely. I think you will be happy with them.

I have a Li and a Lang, both are extremely tasty although I like the idea of storing in alcohol. But they never seen to last long enough to make it to the jar.

Great tree, very carefree but a little dangerous because of the hypodermic like thorns. Sort of apple like when fresh more date like when dried. GA866 and Honey Jar are some of my favorites.

Easy to graft too.
