Hi Guys,
Was lucky to get around 20 seeds.I did soaked the seeds for 48
Hours ,cracked gently to get the seeds and got about 20 seeds and sowed them in fresh medium.
The seed pod has a hard shell.
I am hopeful that I would get some plants.

I am not familiar with that plant.
It must be a tropical?

Hi ,
This is a tropical tree takes 3 to 4 years to bear fruits (seed grown/from Cuttings early) which appears like ping pong ball, dark to pale green in colour.
When the fruits are ripe the tree sheds the leaves, it taste sweet and sour.
It is said have highest Vitamin c .
In East and south east Asia used for juice, candies chutney and several other things, Do a Google search you would amazed about this blessed tree.

How interesting! I just read about this tree in Wikipedia.
I hope you will put your seed photo in the database here, and maybe add some info to the listing?
Keep us updated on progress of seeds.
