Grumichama - Black (Seedling)

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 7 days 20hrs

Comments: -

Looks good.

Update - Oct 2013

I increased the shade because leaves had become rather yellow. Looking better now, and finally starting to grow.

In 2012 I planted a total of 3 grumichamas, all in medium to full sun. This seems to have made the folliage rather yellow. Growth rate - very slow.

Update - Apr2016

I finally got a few flowers on one of my grumis last year, (but no fruit)

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling) 9/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 12 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Location: RUNCORN Brisbane Southside. Very hot backyard on a concrete slab.



Recieved as a christmas pressie 2015. Repotted to a 65L pot late January, with cheap bunnings compost, 1/3 bag of cow poo, a block of coir (soaked in a bucket of water with seasol and mollasses), a handful of organic dynamic lifter for veg, a handful of blood and bone, a sprinkle of lime, and a handful of a rose fertiliser called 'Black Marvel' that I bought on a whim that I find does well with fruit trees- it's high potash.


I should not have waited so long to repot. It struggled in the hot summer here, in it's standard little pot, which I knew it would, since I have managed to kill a few before. It took off really well after repotting- I think mulberries need a larger pot if you aren't going to stick them in the ground, because they will die very quickly if they dry out or overheat. Mine has absolutely exploded with growth, though, since I started popping a half a litre of water from our little table-top pond in there every week. We have fishies, so the water is rich with nutrients.


Besides that, I generally leave it to recieve rain water, or toss a half a litre of water on it near the root zone every other day, with a deeper soak weekly. I expect to water more often in dryer or hotter weather. The pot is also shielded from the sun by another pot in front, but the soil and plant recieve about 4-6 hours morning sun, and completely in shade of the house by afternoon.


I have underplanted it with strawberries, garlic, and garlic chives, and I plan to pop some spinach or sorrel in there, too, now that it has cooled for Autumn. Although I have had a few massive Citrus Swallowtail Butterflies hovering about it, I have no caterpillars on it yet. Fruit flies (both the bigger, fly looking ones, as well as the little mite hovering things) tend to hang about and sit on the leaves for some reason, though that seems to be lessening since I planted the garlic cloves and chives. I plan to hang yellow sticky fruit fly traps this Spring, as I have had an infestation of Citrus Gall Wasp in my lemon and limes this last year. We shall see how that goes.


I know that Mulberries are supposed to be deciduous, but in my part of Brisbane, I have never seen them do much more than thin down a bit. Certainly, mine has lost maybe a dozen leaves -two or three at a time yellowing and falling off- but it just seems to bush out furthur despite the cooling weather. I've been told that I will not get fruit this year, because I have put it in a big enough pot that it will focus on leaf growth rather than fruit, but I cannot really see that as a bad thing (the more growth it has, the more likely it is to survive Summer 2016!) and I cannot confirm this anyway. We'll see how it goes.


Really happy with it so far. I've actually had a hell of a time with all my citrus, so I'm looking forward to watching something be actually productive and healthy in my hotbox of a rental yard.

Cape Gooseberry (Cutting) 6/10

Doicee 1's Edible Fruits
Update: 14 days 16hrs

Comments: -

I have enjoyed watching this shrub grow as this just popped up out of nowhere around November last year [2015], which has turned 3 little plants into one large and very sturdy shrub.

I'm always investigating the little lanterns and pounce the minute I see the yellow/brown coloured lanterns. 

Their flavour is quite unique and I describe it like a cross between a cherry tomato and a berry.. 

My only downfall would be that I can see plenty of green lanterns but only a few ripen at a time, compared to the amount of lanterns on the shrub,  as well as, ants or a caterpillar has beaten me to it.. 

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, December

Dwarf Almond - Self Pollinating Papershell 9/10

Doshepherd1's Edible Fruits
Update: 18 days 5hrs

Comments: - Very fast grower - it went from a nursery whip to about 4 metres in its first year. I think I would have purchased a whole hedge if I had known. Only a handful of almonds the first fruiting season, but I wasn't expecting any, so it was very exciting to have a real homegrown almond. It's a favourite with my chooks as the branches are quite low and the shade plus protection is good.

Planted: 2014

Height 4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Seamungus

Pest Control: The only pest control I ever use is mechanical - either me or my chooks picking bugs off.

Coffee - K7 (Seedling) 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 20 days 17hrs

Comments: -

I just love coffee, So why not grow it?

Suprisingly not too difficult to grow in Victoria. Keep them in large pots so you can move them out of the cold. Keep the soil moist. What I usually do with many of my plants, is just wet the soil occasionally, but not actually give them a proper drink - just for the moisture when it looks like it's drying out. I think there is a difference between keeping plants hydrated and watering them (If that makes sense..).

When I first received these seedlings from Daley's, I positioned them in spot with lots of warm sun. Now that they have established themselves a little more, I have found that too much Central Victorian sun will just burn and dry out the leaves. When positioned in the sun for too long, the whole tree goes droopy. So now they only get morning sun and spend the rest of the day in the shade. This seems to work o.k... At night if the temperature drops, I bring them inside into a warm room.

I thought that maybe spraying the leaves would help, but this seems to make the leave grow oddly. It also can rot the leaves, so don't get water on the leaves!

The first pots that I put the trees in actually ended being too small. This stunted the growth. After trasplanting them to larger pots, they're growth has increased remarkably. I am now getting beautiful, large glossy green leaves.

I'm sure the Coffee Trees don't mind the occasional Samba music that gets played around the place too!!!

I hope that I've helped anyone.

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.

PAWPAW - YELLOW YD1B HYBRID Carica papaya (Seedling) 10/10

Danny N1's Edible Fruits
Update: 78 days 4hrs

Comments: -

Love Papaya Fruit, i am growing other varieties in Adelaide ( Southern Red and recent purchase of a Thai dwarf Torpedo - all purchased from Daley's), but thought i'd give

  the PAWPAW - YELLOW YD1B HYBRID a try as well - going to have Papaya coming out of my ears haha. It is showing strong growth in only 10 eeks! purchased 2 from Daley's hopefully one is male and the other female, would be miffed if they were both the same sex!.

Papaya is in a 430mm pot with rich organics and mulch also the pot has a 30mm layer of volcanic rock which ensures excellent drainage at all times. I have also drilled over a dozen extra holes into the sides and bottom of the pot - potting mix is my own blend that retains moisture so the need to water is just a light sprinkle wit a watering can.

Again the Papaya is living in my semi-enclosed pergola that has clear perspec sheeting allowing filtered light and sheilding from hot winds and cold nights. I have done all i can the rest is up to nature now haha.

Donut (Grafted) 8/10

Akkaydrah1's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 6hrs

Comments: -

The Donut peach has an exceptionally sweet taste but the fruit is only about 50mm dia and donut shaped.  This is the first year that we have had a significant amount of fruit (30 px). Tree has been attacked by cows, cockatoos and kangaroos so we have had to fence the orchard.  This is an ideal fruit for kids going to school.

It gets watered once per week by irrigation which is  a poly ring 600 mm dia and under the mulch.  This keeps the ground moist but not wet.  long tap rooted weeds such as wild radish and scotch thistle are encouraged then chopped and mulched just before flowers go to seed.  This breaks up the clay pan and provides nutrients to the tree.  Dead roots provide water chanels top deep layers and encourage worms.  Home made manure is from nettles, dead chooks, urine and fire ash soaked in water.  This is diluted 1: 25 and watered over mulch in late February.
