Donut (Grafted) 8/10

Akkaydrah1's Edible Fruits
Update: 18 days 20hrs

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.

(Grafted) 10/10

Susan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 30 days 12hrs

Comments: -

I think its wonderful to be able to grow peaches, nectarines and plums in a suburban backyard off the single tree. (only the peaches and nectarines ever grew) An added bonus is the beautiful floral display at the end of winter when everything is looking a bit drab.  Last year was the first year I had significant fruit on it as its still quite small (approx 120 cm tall now) but this year it looks like it will even be more productive!!.  Had a problem with possums (or dog??) last year who attacked the bottom graft with the nectarines on it so I didn't get to taste those, but the peaches were delicious!  Am planning to cover the tree this year as the fruit ripens so hopefully will keep out all the critters who want a share of my harvest. I should take better care of it. Seriously, I don't water it at all unless we haven't had rain for a month and it still keeps growing.  The only pruning I do is to keep the grafts in check.  These photos are about 1/3 of my 2014 crop, grown on a single tree, grafted with a peach and nectarine.

Avocado - Hass (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Westy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 32 days 15hrs

Comments: - We purchased this 5ft tree from a local nursery for a good price. We built a large mound to improve drainage (we have clay soils) using a combination of quality soil from under an acacia baileyana, composted chicken poo/straw and a bit of cow manure. We staked it on 3 sides to help protect it from the wind. It is partly shaded from a eucalypt branch overhead. Survived winter frosts without any damage in Adelaide hills. We are on only rainwater so water it by hand once a week at the moment, probably more during its first summer and then it'll mostly be on its own. No flowers yet but shouldn't be long

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel 8/10

Loves Fruit Trees's Edible Fruits
Update: 39 days 16hrs

Comments: -

I've noticed that the branches of my Dwarf Washington Navel has a different formation to the Seedless Valencias. This is interesting because they have a graceful habit it seems. This disturbed me at first but then I remembered how lovely my mother's established Washington Navel looks (20yrs) It has the nicest sweet juicy oranges. It is watered with a slow running hose for an hour each week. This has been her favorite and most successful prize tree - the best she had when she was here in SA. 

Washington Navel is a heavy producer and the Oranges have a superb taste! If however you live in an area with extended weather that is freezing, you may be better going with a summer variety like Valencia Seedless avalable in dwarf variety. You don't want to lose your whole crop if weather conditions are unsuitable (minus Oc) They need about six months above 14c most of the time I found out. I'm about to place some excerpts of Info about Washington Navels on my hobby-site (re About Me) that is really nice and the best YouTube ever, I've found on their interesting history. You'd be amazed. I loved it!

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue 9/10

Hjw1's Edible Fruits
Update: 52 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Fruit is amazing just two years after planting! We've harvested nearly 1kg this year.  At it's peak (late Nov / early Dec) was harvesting 1 punnet every 3-4 days. Fruit is good size and delicious. 

We moved it to a new location this year.  Full sun, but we covered the western side of the frame for the blueberries with green shade cloth.  We live on the Liverpool Plains - north western NSW, where rain is infrequent and summer days average 36 degrees.  Once the temps go above 36 degrees we water twice per day.  Water with rainwater.

Roots have now gone through the pot and into the ground.

Fruiting Months October, November, December

Height 1 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Fruit Harvest: 0.8 kilograms per Year

Just recently did similar with shading blueberries from western side cause of hot days above 35. I've left eastern and northern side open but I may have to reconsider that :) Cheers

Blueberry - Biloxi (Cutting) 8/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 56 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Had some nice blueberries off the Biloxi, not as big as the Misty,  though it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned a little several weeks ago and already there is new growth. It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind which I am prone to do  :)

Planter bags I found really reasonably priced at a plcae on the Gold Coast and they do deliver.
