I grew a couple of these from seeds which had fallen from a tree. A male
tree was nearby so the seeds were viable. After removing the outer fleshy
part (which smells really terrible!), I pushed the seeds into some sand in
a plastic container, replaced the cover
and left it outside under some leaves for the winter. It gets to about
-l0F degrees around here and they may need to freeze to germinate but I
don't know this for sure.
In early spring I checked the seeds and put the ones which had sprouted
in potting soil. When the weather warmed up I planted them outside and
let them grow on their own. They did quite well and now, after two years,
are about a foot tall. The pampered control plants brought indoors for the
winter all died!
I hope this is helpful. Good Luck with them!
