Mango - R2E2 (Grafted) (Grafted) 7/10

Amethyst's Edible Fruits
Update: 4 days 20hrs

Comments: -

Update September 2014: masses of flowers this year after a one-third prune in autumn. The scent is awful - think stale, soapy water or a bit like Photinia flowers. Still, small fruit are already forming and I hold high hopes for a fabulous crop this year. Might need to think it out if things get too frenetic.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fruit was of good quality. Perhaps not as superior as a Bowen type mango but better than the majority of mangoes in Brisbane. Survived the November 2009 storms in The Gap / Keperra. 2010-2011 season has been disappointing only because it was wet during flowering and no fruit was set. The tree has made up for it with fresh vegetative growth and is getting a little larger than I expected!

Update Nov 2013. Set and produced a good crop of fruit in 2012-13 but did not set well this year owing very dry weather following pollination.

Question:

Can I expect it to get much taller!?

Mango - seedling - who knows (Seedling) 9/10

Nathan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 7 days 15hrs

Comments: -

UPDATE 2014: Growing well know, after splitting the 2 trunks by accident with excavator. I staked both trnks, and bound them, has bounced back, wound seems to have healed, and it growing really well

UPDATE 2012: This has a settled in to a dozen good sized mangoes on-board, and has really flourished this year.. and has forgiven me for accidentally "clefting it in twain" from while throwing a sheet a fencing iron behind me whilst working

Just popped out of compost heap when living in Blue Mountains, so I dragged it back here.

No fruit yet, but others in the area go well. I will graft it with a named variety very shortly. It's growing quite well in full sun, on the high/dry side of my garden. I've recently added a swale for it and the other trees in same vicinity.

Yes I'm a huge fan of coffee trees and have made a few cups of coffee using my own beans. I am a huge novice but very much enjoy the understanding I get from doing it by myself. Even though I have quite a few plants I don't think I will be able to support my coffee addiction from them.

Dwarf Apple - Tropic Sweet (Grafted) 9/10

DavesCityGarden1's Edible Fruits
Update: 50 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I am espaliering this tree with 2 other apples- Anna And Golden Dorset in a candelabra shape. This is the first year fruiting - I've had about 10 small apples, very sweet and crisp but don't seem to keep well in the fridge- they become floury.  Fruit fly has been an issue so I will need to take treatment next year.   Spring 2011 - this year more fruit set on all 3 apples. I have thinned some. Growth has reached to top of the fence so will prune in mid summer to reduce growth.

I didn't think we could grow apples in Sydney; now I might give it a try
ankhira says... [1318 days 17hrs ago]
How many plants are required to get fruit? Thanks
DavesCityGarden1 says... [1289 days 9hrs ago]
2 they need a cross pollinator so you must ensure you have the right variety to cross pollinate.

Dwarf Coffee - Catui (Seedling) 10/10

Ahimsa Cottage's Edible Fruits
Update: 67 days 6hrs

Comments: -

I hope to use the beans to make our own coffee eventually. I initially planted these trees at the back of our property which had a lot of clay and only managed to water them once a month and as a result their growth was slow. I decided to transplant them to along side the house improve the soil by adding peat moss and lots of mulch and where i could regularly water them. They have increased in size x5 in the last 6 months. 

In April this year the tree began to fruit bright red coffee cherries, i picked these squeezed the green beans and soaked them in water for 2 days. i poped these beans into a mesh bag rubbed them to remove the membrane.  Then put  the beans onto paper kitchen towel sitting on a baking rack. Over the period of a couple of days the beans dry out, cracks form at the top so that the white parchment starts to spilt. The  parchment layer can be picked off to reveal the green bean. I have stock piling  these green bean til i  have enough 500 grams to trial roasting with pop corn machine. i will attach images.
