I have this 3ft durian tree (D24) that i purchased from WF last year and grown in a big pot. Pot diameter is about 2ft and 2 1/2 ft deep. Do you think it will ever bear fruit while
grown in a pot? Anyone has any experiences?? :hysterical:/>

My dad has a durian tree plant grown from seed in a small pot, shunted for 20 years. Have not seen it flower before! :closedeyes:/>

Maybe you'll have better luck with a pedigree durian in your big pot :flowers:/>

Grow from seed will take more than 10 years to bear fruit even on ground.

Roy, report your progress of potted durian D24 by then if GCS still around.http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif

You will probably need a 3.5-4 feet pot to get a better chance. While I have never seen tiny fruit bearing durian tree, the logical assumption is space of growth and not stun growth

If it is grafted, then the cycle is shorten.

Rockie, if u leave it in the pot, yr durian tree even if it fruits will only produce lychee size fruits. http://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif I suggest you bring yr tree to Pulau Ubi, find a good fenshui spot n plant it in the ground and pay some mangkala workers to water for you daily and sms you when durians form. pls also call me along when the fruits are ripehttp://www.greenculturesg.com/forum/public/style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif

Ok...I will let you know if I decide to yank it out and replace it with a Longgan tree.
I think with Loggan tree, I have a better chance of eating the fruit than the Durian. :hysterical:/>

My advice is not to plant durian and coconut tree around the house. These are dangerous fatal fruits if hit by one. Many many years ago, a neighbour had a tall durian tree and below it was a tiny shed to store items. Each year, the durian would drop and some would bounce off the shed roof and landed on others driveway and garden where visiting siblings play and chat around at night.

But there are species of durian that bears fruit on the main trunk on the ground. That would be nice.
