    my husband and my family love fruit. we really like one that are off the beaten track like the chilean guava we have just planted from cutting someone took. next one the list to grow is the carob. has any one had success growning dried seeds yet.

    there are three methods i have been told about.
    1. sandpaper till white spots show then soak till inlarged.
    2. Boil method
    3. hot water x2 daily for 4 days.

    does any one know what male and female carob tree look like.
    and does it take 7 years till the first fruit...............

    fruit trees

    lillypilly...............all those methods of seed pre-germination will work, also bleach is sometimes added to the soaking pot, although i haven't tried it on carob seeds. Just a word of advice carobs may take up to 13 years to produce pods, also sensitive to frosts.
    As for other exotic trees we have about 50 different types of unusual fruit trees, all doing very well and just starting to fruit, also a few aus natives like burdekin plum, cedar bay cherry,davidsons plum, finger limes, peanut tree and bunya pine.
    happy germination, bushy.
