Diospyros decandra, is a tropical tree in the ebony family. Its flowers are white.
Delicious golden color fruit grown in Thailand with a unique flavor and soft texture. Fruit usually divided into 6-8 zones and have a strong fragrant smell and have medicinal value. Ripe fruit, if you know how to eat is tasty (fruit and squeeze rotate until the flesh becomes soft and then cracked a small slit for the mouth to suck).
It is a popular tree in Vietnam where it is grown in urban areas and close to temples. It is called "cây thị" in Vietnamese and it has appeared in Vietnamese folklore, such as The Story of Tam and Cam. It is also the provincial tree of Chanthaburi Province, Thailand; its Thai name is ลูกจันทร์ "luuk-jan". It is a small plant (about 5–6 m tall). Its leaves are 6–8 cm long and 3–4 cm wide with a pointed tip.
Its fruits are yellow-colored and are known as "Gold Apple" or "trái thị". They're about 3–6 cm in diameter and have a strong fragrant smell. The fruits are edible and taste good if you know how to eat them. They are believed to have medicinal value.
Sow the seed in a shady position in a nursery seed bed. The sowing media for ebony uses soil and fine sand at the ratio 3:1. The seed is planted horizontally or vertically with the radicle end down, with a sowing depth of 1 - 1½ times the thickness of seed. Distance between the seeds is 3 - 5cm. Seeds are very sensitive to desiccation during germination and early growth, so must be regularly watered at this time. Normally the seed will germinate after 10 - 20 Days.
As a rule fresh seeds have a high percentage of fertility. The seedlings develop long tap roots at an early stage, often before any appreciable elongation of the shoot takes place. The growth of the seedling is decidedly slow.
