Plant it far enough away from your house because when they start to fruit they give so much fruit (when they are bigger) that you will probably never manage to collect all or use all and that will attract lots of wasps,hornets,butterflies and all sorts of other animals that you don't necessarily want right next to your house.
Also this tree is not invasive at all, so it doesn't cause any problems in that sense.
After the 100 days of stratification take out the seeds and sow them in weed free soil in abox or so.
3 to 4 weeks later you will see the small trees starting to grow.
Plant each seedling into a jiffypot made of turf or coconut (this is important!) and water regularly, but not too much.

They've been out of the refrigerator and in soil for a couple weeks now I think.
I'll get them in a sunny window today.
Do I wait until we are frost free to put them outdoors? ...I have a hoop house that will keep them above freezing most nights and I suppose if it drops into the twenties I could bring them back in?
