Dear George,

Thanks for sharing these remarkable photos with all of us.   It is amazing to see an infructesence of this rare species in cultivation surrounded by a ''security wall'' for its protection!  Jim Symon would be SO proud to see his ''grandkids'' (or "great-grandkids"?) developing, actually they look NEARLY ripe!
A question---does anyone know where the pollen was obtained to ''do the deed'' on this plant??   In other words, who is the ''baby daddy'' to these fruits!

The Best,
