I was born in Juchipila Zacatecas, Mexico. (We) My brothers and sisters inherited about 700 acres of land from my father Lorenzo Quintero and part of it is located in cerro de piones . there are at least 200 Pinus maximartinezii trees in our property, About 10 miles southwest of Juchipila) we used to collect those big pine nuts (maximartinezii)every year-my brother Lorenzo junior still lives there- as a very young boy I tried to germinate some of the seeds with a very limited success by using soil from around the trunks of the pine tree.
