So I read this thread a while back http://www.permies.com/t/31794/desert/Desert-Corn-Growing-Techniques
Instead of using corn I buried some loquats (whole fruit not just the seed) 18" deep.

Today I found 7 seedlings, and they weren't there a few days ago. My Christmas present from Mother Nature.

I'll look up the timing of when I planted them, but from memory it was March or April this year.
