Fast Fruits

    22 responses

Sort:
justjuice starts with ...
I thought it might be useful to have a list of "fast fruit" in one place. I'm impatient, and after just buying a new house I want to get fruit ASAP, while I'm waiting for the standard 5 years for "normal" fruit to bear. So far I've found the following, but if anyone has experience with fast fruiters please add it here. (I would define a fast fruiter as a fruiting plant that produces in less than 3 years), Thanks!

Babaco
Banana
Berry fruits
Cape gooseberry
Midyim berry
Passionfruit
Pawpaw
Pepino
Tamarillo

A few i can think of:

-Guava
-Peanut Butter Fruit
-Panama Berry
-Atherton raspberry
-Most grafted fruit trees should fruit within 3 years from planting

From my experience grafted stone fruit (eg peaches & nectarines) planted in winter/early spring should produce a tiny crop straight away then at least 100 fruits the next year.

Hi all...my Wampees are flowering but they were only planted in Aug this year...are these trees like others in that I should remove the flowers for the first 1-2yrs?
I wasn't expecting them to be so precocious!?

Hi Amanda,
Can you upload photos of your Wampi tree flowering ? I have some white buds on my tree but I'm not sure if it's flowers or just new leave shoots.

Hi Michael - sorry have been away - but while I was away the hot easterlies blew the #@@* out of my garden and the flowers have fallen off!? there is just a naked stalk left. I hope this is not going to be a future problem for the tree producing fruit.
I will be sure to take a pic for u if they produce anymore tho'
I would just leave them and see what happens Michael - if they turn out t be flowrs then you can snip them off if u want.

Amanda how's your wampee going? Mine looks great but NO FLOWERS; not sure if that's a problem but since everyone says it's a FAST FRUIT tree... also mine is not a named variety; maybe that's the problem?

It does look good MaryT! Maybe it's a seedling? Someone here may know how long they take to fruit?

I got my 2 via Daleys and they have a definite grafting 'scar' (?) on the trunk. I have had them for 2yrs - but they may have been 1 or 2 yrs old when I purchased them. They are Guy Sams.

Like most of my sub tropicals - I have to water them with rain water as our scheme water is too saline. The first flowers are opening up now. As they are in tree sacks in the shade house - I am not sure how pollination will go...(although it seems to happen in there somehow!?)

They very nearly died out in my orchard - too hot and windy by far, and too salty. When I dug them up - they had a very large but shallow root system - it was very fine and fibrous and looked like a big mat...so I guess that's a good clue - they probably dry out easily and need a nice nutrituous mulch..?

I am also using blood and bone on all of my sub tropicals now, along with Seasol. I just had too many problems with salt-burning when I used other stuff. So far even my jaboticabas are happy with this (and that's really saying something - cos' they are the most sensitive/fussy plant I have..!?)

If I was more organised I would make my own leaf-litter mulch for my sub tropicals...as it was I splurged on some sphagmum (spelling?) moss instead. They seem to like this!? :D

I don't know that much more about them MaryT.

Umm; you're right, Amanda - it's a seedling - damn.
It's worth getting a grafted variety for that reason. Still, it's worth the risk to try a seedling if there's a chance of getting extraordinarily super fruits LOL Anyway, as John Mc wisely advised - PATIENCE!!

OK Amanda, I'm over it. I mean I don't care if my tree is a seedling and will take longer to fruit. Think: you and I are both seedling grown; are we not more interesting than clones (if they are indeed cloning humans). How boring would life on earth be if it is inhabited by duplicates only? There, I feel better now:)

I got a dwarf lemonade, Nick, one of the few citrus I didn't have but lots of people seem to have problems with it. Lucky I like challenges. :)

Hi Nick, I assume you are growing the panama berry in Altona?
Does it get any special treatment or can I just stick one in the ground around the corner is West Footscray. Also where is the best place to buy these? Daley's is a great source but the transport costs are a killer.
