Pot Size: 20 litre
Description: From my very first sortie to Y Tý in the very north of Vietnam along the border with China in 2003. Where I discovered a highly degraded forest in the low cloud, with an isolated tree of this species growing in an open overgrazed area, 4-5m tall. With small dark evergreen ovate-elliptic leathery leaves 6-10× 2.5-3.5cm finely serrated with long tips, on short gnarled purplish branches in the exposed position and large apple-sized orbicular fruit. The result of the large terracotta-pink flowers born in April-May, we subsequently saw on cultivation, both flower and fruit on the largest end of the recorded dimensions of 10 and 8cm across. Best grown with a bit of shelter from freezing winds and extreme cold, in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil. These are 30 lt pots.
