Terratoonie:

Happy Easter to you also!

The Autograph tree is more a shrub at this point (still young). It will eventually grow to 15 feet / 5 meters or so. In the true tropics it grows to 50 feet/ 15 meters tall.

I seem to recall you posted a photo of a more mature Autograph tree a few months ago ?

Terratoonie:

Yes, I have posted several in the past. There's many species, varieties of Clusia. We can only grow a few species and varieties here in San Diego. Most species are commonly grown the the true tropics only.
