I have 5 trees in my back yard,all started from seeds about 8yrs ago.Seeds were bought from someone here on huntin pa. no longer remember who it was. Trees are now about 12 ft tall and 4 of the five have a good crop of fruit. Yes there has to be male and female tree. I believe I have 4 female and one male,and the male has no fruit. They were a real pain to get started and had to be watered and pampered continuously to get them to this point. The trees are now doing well on their own and require only an occasional trimming of the lower branches for ease of mowing around them.
I'm in cumberland co. if that helps and they are doing well here.
If anyone is interested ,save this post and PM me after Oct. when the fruit is ripe and I will send seeds from all 5 trees that I have. I think I remember keeping the seeds in the freezer over the winter,then planting them in pots in the spring. I think they have to go through a freeze before they will germinate.
