4 - 6+ months, depending on the weather...but they're worth it. They are sweet as candy when ripe.

Reminds me of my time in the far east - all these fruits that I love (with the exception of the Durrian), but even better tasting!

Thanks! I like Durian fruit, but not the smell. lol! We can't grow Durian fruit here (I don't like making definitive statements, but Durian fruit is super doesn't like temps below 68 degrees/ 20 degrees C.)

We're lucky here, we can grow: lychee, longan, cherimoya, tropical guava, strawberry guava, lemon guava, antemoya, star apple, bananas, star fruit, mango, acerola cherry, rose apple, papaya, avocado and much, much more. Many of these fruits are grown commercially here. San Diego County is the avocado capital of the U.S...many varieties are harvested all year.
