Emmenopterys henryi...fruit is developing post flowering

It looks like only a fruit or two per inflorescence, but they were big trees and flowered heavily. There will be a lot of seeds! Judging from what I have read germination is not difficult. We'll have to give it a try.

Please try the seeds. In China, they have failed to reproduce from seeds. Either the seeds do not germinate well or the seedlings have poor survival rate. The wild plants in China have not been observed as being able to regenerate on their own. Commercial reproduction relies on rooting of cuttings which also shows poor success rate.
