Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel (Grafted) 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 1 day 13hrs

Comments: -

I have tried growing this variety previously with no luck, however I now understand that my efforts were doomed to failure because I was trying grown in the wrong location. A different home and an appropriate location should serve the new tree well.

April 2015. This tree is now going full steam ahead and I am really hopeful that I will see some fruit on it this season. It is now significantly larger with a lot of new growth.

June 2016 A successful crop of 30 really sweet navels. I feel happy now :) I can't believe how juicy and sweet this crop is compared to shop bought fruit.

Lemba - Curculigo latifolia 9/10

Linton's Edible Fruits
Update: 19 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Lemba - Curculigo latifolia (Palm Grass)

"It has little or no taste the first time you bite into it, but after the second bite everything will become sweet."


This is because Lemba fruit contain the protein curcumin. The edible fruit are supposed to taste a bit like slightly sweet cucumbers. Also, the taste-modifying protein can change plain water and sour drinks to sweet.

Finger Lime - Grafted (Grafted) 9/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 32 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Mine is on a rootstock Cox. Recieved as a gift Christmas 2015, didn't repot until January 2016. Seemed fine sitting in the pot it came in, but absolutely exploded with growth once I got it into the new pot- which I am still not sure if that was the size of the container it is now in (70 L) or what it was potted into. I used cheapy bunnings compost, cow poo, a block of coir soaked in seasol and mollasses, a hand full of dynamic lifter, and a smidge of lime. I'm told they don't like very rich soil, but mine has thrived in the mix.

Another thing I have found is that despite everything saying full sun for these guys, mine did NOT like the full sun in my hot, concreted suburban backyard. Instead, I have moved it to a spot that only gets perhaps two to three hours of morning summer sun before it is in shade by 11, and it did a whole lot better there. The sun was scorching the new growth right off, and the leaves were all turning yellow. It is happy and bushy now in more shade, even with very little sun in the midst of winter at the moment. I have it underplanted with an english spinach plant, bok choy, a whole whack of johnny jump-ups, and a succulent as living mulch, and there is a butter bean vine planted in the back of the pot, and it seems to tolerate living with these really well. There is a Salvia in there as well, but it is not doing great in so much shade, so I shall be digging that out soon.

It IS a very spiky plant, though I have never been scratched by it. A little care is needed, but my kids know to be careful, and nobody has been bitten yet!! I have it placed by my front gate, in front of my glass sliding door. We don't use the door as a door, so it is a good security measure, lols.

My biggest problem with the Finger Lime has been ants and APHIDS. The ants persist in wanting to nest underneath the Finger Lime, so I have to flood the pot every few weeks to drive them out again. This has become less of an issue since I underplanted the tree with flowers, etc, as I think the additional root systems around the edge of the pot are keeping the soil more moist than they like. I shall see how this progresses. But they do herd the bloody APHIDS around the tree. Despite wanting to keep my yard as chemical free as possible, I have had to resort to chem aids to rid my poor Lime of the aphids. They tuck into the delicate new growth where I cannot reach them, and so I have had to spray every two-three days for the last four weeks to rid myself of them. The ants will herd them to unsprayed foliage, as well, so you must spray the entire plant if you have aphids, or they will simply reappear elsewhere a few days later. Very annoying.

I was told that I would not get fruit until the tree was at LEAST three years old, but many others seem to have fruit much earlier than that, so I shall see this summer, I suppose.

Coffee - K7 (Seedling) 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 45 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.

Jaboticaba 9/10

Juul's Edible Fruits
Update: 61 days 15hrs

Comments: -

I have an old tree and so impressed by the taste of fruit and harvest. I am planting seedlings all over my yard and calling it 'my vineyard' since they take so long to grow. They taste similiar to grapes or lychees but far better, in fact they are my ultimate favourite fruit. My parents have made their own wine from them.

Fruiting Months January, February, October

Planted: 1998

Height 5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Fruit Harvest: 30 kilograms per Year

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

When I Fertilise: Never

Question:

I have a few ideas and I am wondering if it is possible to speed up growth. Has anyone tried planting a few Jaboticaba's in one hole? Or perhaps pruning the bottom stems? Or fertilising with something in particular in springtime? I wonder if their native heritage gives any clues about how to possibly speed up growth.

Dwarf Persimmon - Ichikikijiro (NA) (Grafted)

Life In A Retirement Village's Edible Fruits
Update: 71 days 22hrs

Comments: - I only recieved it a couple of days ago and planted it out the same day. We live in Baw baw in Gippsland so we get frosts in winter . Spring is very near and I wanted to get it in before the sap  starts to run. I have seen many persimmon fruit in opportunity shops here but they never ripened. I dug a hole twice the depth and width of the pot and put a generous handfull of dynamic lifter beneath the osmocote potting mix I brought to hole up to correct size. It just looks like a twig at the moment. Retirement villages have small back yards so the dwarf seems like agood option for me. I hope it does well.

Planted: 2015

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Question: I'm not sure how to add comments on the growing process, I thought this had died because the other deciduous trees in my yard leafed up much more quickly  but left it in the ground and the buds are now showing movement.

Grumichama - Black (Seedling)

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 93 days 11hrs

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)

Cape Gooseberry (Cutting) 6/10

Doicee 1's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 8hrs

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..

Dwarf Almond - Self Pollinating Papershell 9/10

Doshepherd1's Edible Fruits
Update: 103 days 21hrs

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.

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.
