Yes a monster indeed! A very old and well fed monster that made buckets of fruit. I used to take some of the fruit from our side of the fence to a Brazilian restaurant and trade them for free dinners.

This was from seed two years ago. No water or fertilizer for the last year and it's still growing.

Oh really? I would like to try growing that type also. Do you soak them in orange juice or just plain water?

I'm to lazy to soak them,I use to.I haven't seen any difference in germination between soaked or ones I've planted direct. Soaking may speed up germination and it may help with older seed but I'm not convinced it makes a difference.
