The easiest way to start Muntingia calabura, the Panama Berry, is from suckers. If the tree you want to collect from is not suckering, then make a notch in one of the roots, go back a couple of months later and it will probably have formed a small plant – just like breadfruit. Ref: Oscar – Hawaii
Requires a well drained location. If it gets wet root, it will likely die.
Best grown in nutrient poor soils. It will fruit in fertile soils, but to a much lesser degree.
