Maclura pomifera is dioecious, so it appears you now need to propagate one of the opposite sex. And since they are from the Moraceae (fig and mulberry) family, you should be able to do this by rooting some cuttings of a plant from the woods. Consider this: you obtained a fruit with seeds -- so the fruit came from a female and the male is somewhere nearby.

As an experiment I decided to try moving my Giant Crinum Lily - aka Poison Bulb - outside because it's just too big to keep in the greenhouse, and because no one can seem to agree on the hardiness zone. This plant was seed-grown in 2007 and has been blooming regularly twice a year for the past 2 years. And in fact it now has seedlings sprouting in the pot (fyi, they take about 6 months to germinate)
......it looks like the move outside didn't deter it one bit

I thought these were day lilies, but my expert friend said today they're Crinum x Powelii(Cape lily). Since I have no idea what that means, I'm inclined to think she's correct. *grins*

I've had this exact same tub of lilies for well over 25 years. Possibly close to 30 years now. My mother dug up some lilies from my great grandmother's house and brought them home in this tub. She then planted almost all of the lilies but there were a few stragglers that got set aside still in the tub. They multiplied in the tub until it was full again over a few years, when my mother again planted almost all of the lilies but left some behind again, which again multiplied until the tub was full. This has been repeated a few more times after my mother passed away and the tub even survived a house fire when part of a wall fell onto it.

So I might not know exactly what they are, but I've been hauling them around the state of Florida for decades.

Hopefully you know the difference between a ripe one and a toxic one.

Mojito is a popular cultivar of Colocasia sold in the nursery trade. There are of course other plants named Mojito including the mint cultivar from which the name of the drink was derived.
