Are there any tricks to growing this plant? I live in Southern California, great for trees in the citrus family like this one. I had one seed sprout in the spring, and it has only grown only around four inches tall all season. Itís in a small 4" pot in quality potting soil. Its three leaves are almost yellow/chartreuse with green veins, even though I fertilize it lightly with Miracle Grow once a month, even on the leaves. I've tried full sun, morning sun, afternoon sun. Half day sun seems better. I've tried alternately watering it with filtered water, since we have poor quality alkali water. But it still seems very unhappy, refuses to grow. What would you suggest?

We had a huge Bel tree in India at our house. The fruits were delicious but tricky to eat. Fruit has to ripen to yellow color before you pick it from tree. Then you break it in half just like coconut.Fruit is full of seeds covered in mucilage. Yellow pulp with lot of fiber is cooped out for eating and seeds are discarded. Fiber portion is difficult to eat but the fleshy parts are yummy. You sort of suck the fleshy part from the fibers and then spit out the fibers. Best way to eat is to squeeze the pulp and strain it through a sieve.There is a lot of thick juice in the pulp.Some people mix sugar in juice. This juice is good for drinking on hot days and is supposed to keep you from getting heat stroke. Leaves are offered to Lord Shiva for prayers. Branches are thorny.Nowadays it is not very easy to find this fruit even in India, just like many others.
