I live in Florida and if yoru gov’t would allow it I would send you seed, out trees are prolific.

You might want to try getting seed from a Botanical garden. The seed sprouts easily under warm conditions (24-26C) and the grow very fast. 5-10 yrs to flower. They need lots of good quality water to get started City water isn’t as good as well water.

I have sent a photo of ’Smathers Gold’ just a few blocks from my house. I never makes fertile seed, too bad.
