Columbia Guinep or Spanish Lime (Melicoccus bijugatus) seeds germination in about 1 month. 哥倫比亞青龍眼種子約1個月孵出.

Tropical fruit tree.  Fruit looks like small lime.  The inside flesh is silky and flavorful but not as sweet and firm just to compare with longan (Dimocarpus longan).  Easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  Small white fragrant flowers in late winter to mid spring.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.  USDA Zones:9-11. Mature size: 40′(H) X 20′-30′(W). Propagate by seeds or layering.

熱帶果樹.  果實外觀像是小顆青檸.  果肉多汁酸甜適中,口感絲滑偏軟. 與龍眼相比,龍眼較甜,果肉口感也較紮實. 容易栽種.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處. 冬末到仲春開白色芳香的小花.  花頗吸引蜂蝶. 喜熱不耐寒.  成熟株高40呎,寬幅20-30呎.  繁殖以種子或壓條/高壓的方式來進行.
