Mangosteen Update on Earth Day 2008

I have been nurturing 2 Mangosteen plants for 2 1/2 years. These were grown from seed taken from store-bought fruit.

The trees (2 survivors from about 20 seedlings) have been growing in various sized pots under a "Geffner" Atemoya tree and are now at 3-gallon size. This Earth Day, if all goes well, they will find their permanent home in a specially constructed 60 cubic yard raised bed and kept under shade screening for another 2 years. Wish me luck please, after Mangosteen is the Queen of Fruits (smile). Happy Earth Day 2008!!
