1/ The seeds germinate fairly easily when removed from the exocarps and soaked in water for a few hours before planting. It is advisable to check the seeds for parasitisation. Another method is to plant the winged fruit protruding slightly, in well fertilised soil. Although the tree is a slow grower, seedlings can reach a height of 1 metre in 18-24 months. A specific specimen is known to have grown four metres in 15 years.
