Rollinia Deliciosa


Rollinia is commonly known as the lemon meringue pie fruit.  The inside is sort of creamy and soft, with very few fibers. It grows excellent from seeds and the tree fruits in 2-3 years from planting out the seedling tree.

These seeds are shipped within 1 month of harvesting. They should be planted immediately upon receipt, but should last for several months after harvest.

Rollinia is most commonly propagated by seeds because they grow true to type. Seeds may take anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months to germinate, with about 80% success rate. To speed up the germination process you can try soaking them in water for 12-24 hours, or scarification. Like most fruit tree seeds it is good to sow them in partially shaded and wind protected nursery location. Trees can fruit in as little as 2-3 years and may fruit multiple times a year for a staggered harvest.

These trees grow fast, as much as 10 feet a year (up to about 40 feet). They are tolerant of heavy rains, but not tolerant of drought. In fact, they prefer locations with consistent rainfall throughout the year. They appreciate large mulch rings or organic matter for good fruit set.
