There is something marvelous about seeing a lipote tree in fruit. For one it looks very different from the familiar duhat because the fruit are borne near the branches. In botanical terms it is caulicarpic, or stem fruit bearing. The lipote fruits appear like plump grapes growing on a tree.
Since there is abundance in fruit, I tried making the most of it and picked up the fallen fruits for their viable seeds. Hopefully the seeds I get would later become seedlings to share with willing foster gardeners. If successful, will ask again who would want to rear seedlings of one of our nicer native fruiting trees to keep in the garden. Wish me the luck and patience!
