Description: From seed we collected from a small to medium sized tree on a ridge known as Dragon's Tooth. So named because of the jagged limestone outcrops, close to the hillstation of Sapa high in the mountains of northern Vietnam in the autumn of 2011. Where it formed an ornamental tree with dark green leathery to almost fleshy elliptic-obovate glabrous leaves. With terminal large egg-sized deep yellow fruit attached by sturdy pedicels and warty calyces. These were the result of the night scented white funnel-shaped flowers around 5cm wide and long, carried April to August in the wild. Best treated as tender until hardiness is tested, but the area collected from has winters to -8C. Grow in a well drained soil with plenty of moisture retention.
