Small Leaf Tamarind 10/10

Kloe's Edible Fruits
Update: 2427 days 3hrs

Comments: - The lime green foliage of this tree is a brilliant contrast to the other plants in my tiny courtyard.  The tree has doubled in size in one season.  It is compact in width, and growing nice and straight and tall without a stake.  I have Brahmi growing underneath it in a pot, and the two work well as they need more water than the other drought tolerant plants I have.

Planted: 2010

Height 105 Centimetres

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pest Control: Affected by a plague of red spider mites, but problem solved by water spraying the underside of the leaves early morning and night (don't wet when sun can burn leaves).

I bought two of these in big 75L pots. They have survived my mean establishment maltreatment of no dig, build-up the soil but needed a bit of water to settle in without wilting. Now I don't water at all. Nice and bushy like a giant topiary.

Small Leaf Tamarind (Seedling) 6/10

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 782 days 22hrs

Comments: - I originally bought a rare yellow fruited variety of Diploglottis campbellii, but unfortunately the possums ate it. Couldn't find another seller of the yellow variety who would ship or was nearby, so I settled with the more common red/orange one. This one is currently in the shade and isn't doing much. Tolerates transplanting very well. I think it would be better off in the sun with plenty of water, but I don't have a location for a large tree like it with those conditions.
