Mamoncillo may be propagated by seed, however, varieties do not come true to seed and seedling trees may not begin fruit production for 8 to 10 years.
Mamoncillo trees should be planted at least 25 ft (7.6 m) from nearby trees and structures because mature trees not regularly pruned may become quite large.
Roots of mature mamoncillo trees spread beyond the drip-line of the tree canopy, and heavy fertilization of the lawn next to mamoncillo trees is not recommended because it may reduce fruiting and or fruit quality.
