This small seed was found on a chair packaged and shipped from China. It is likely that this seed actually comes from China (though possible that the chair was repackaged here in the US.) The seed was placed in sterile potting medium and incubated on a grow-stand for a few days. Nothing germinated so I gave up. Still, it would have been fun to grow a tree from China. Not that food from China does not come here all the time, and those seeds could be grown as well... but this was an accidental intercontinental broadcast of seed, and it would have been nice to give the little plant a thrill.
