I like that. I wonder of it can do well enough up here?

I've tried growing this tree several times up in the SF Bay Area. This tree never survived. It's pretty tropical native to the Congo region of Africa.

I have several if you want to try one. I'm going up to the SF Bay Area in the next couple of weeks. PM me if you're interested.
