I think I'm getting seed!

Post by Shane »

I pollinated my M. spinosissima 'un pico' back in April with a paintbrush. I wasn't sure if I'd been successful, but the bumps I hope are fruits have been growing. Fingers crossed

I'm definitely getting a fruit! Hopefully with lots of seeds...

It grew like this out of nowhere. I'm hoping the other two proto-fruits do the same soon
