    Tony you headed over to the mill in kingsville? And if you can't get seeds I might be able to help. The bugs get after the seeds pretty fast when they ripen.

    Do you think Texas Ebony would grow in upstate New York? If you can collect a few extra seeds I might give it a try. I will start them in a pot in our sunroom. Bring them outside for the summer and back in for the winter. In a few cycles if I can get it to grow I will transplant it in the backyard and call it New York Ebony.

    Just stole this from another site.

    Texas ebony prefers well-draining, sandy soil. Though the tree is exceptionally drought tolerant, the University of Arizona Pima County Cooperative Extension recommends watering the tree deeply once or twice a month to encourage faster growth. Texas ebony produces seedpods that are about 3 to 6 inches long, which drop from the tree and can create a mess if the tree is planted near a driveway or walkway. If propagating the tree by seed, nick seeds with a knife and soak in boiling water for 30 to 45 minutes before planting.
