Yes, The Sweet Kamias Will Bear Fruit In A Container

A lady who bought a couple of Sweet Kamias seedlings (not grafted) had asked. If she plants them in a container, will they bear fruit?

As per our own experience, the Sweet Kamias will bear fruit in a container. We planted ours in a rubberized container with a diameter of about 1.5 feet at the rim and 1.5 feet tall. We filled the container with a mixture 40% garden soil, 30% rice husk and 30% Durabloom organic fertilizer. Of course the percentage need not be precise. You can try your own combination. Make sure the growing media drains well.

Fruiting Sweet Kamias grown in a ruberrized container at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. The seedling, 3 feet then, was planted about 2.5 years ago.

Four years after planting, the tree had grown more than six feet tall with a single stem that was about 1.5 inches in diameter. Because we didnโ€™t want the plant to grow taller, we decided to topcut it, leaving several leaves. Lo and behold, in no time at all, flowers emerged, some just a few inches above the soil. And the fruits developed normally.

Some other customers had told us that they were also able to make their Sweet Kamias bear fruit in a container.

Sweet Kamias seedlings are now available at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal. For inquiry, contact Rose at 0915-002-1368.
