Hi Deb, That's great. Does your tropic sweet apple have a pollinator, or is it the only apple tree in the garden? Diana.

Apple - Tropic Sweet (Grafted) 9/10

September 2014: Planted in July. Growing beautifully this Spring. Planted in fresh spoil,  well composted,  regular Seaweed fertiliser and well mulched. Flowered in early September but they (expectedly) fell off. Beautiful looking plant.

November 2014: Update, have bought a second apple for cross pollination, Golden Dorsett.  The Tropic Sweet is growing phenominally well.  Constant new growth since spring.  The growth on both apples really proves that you can grow the right type of apples in coastal Queensland!

May 2015: This plant has grown beautifully.  Very easy to grow and it has just kept getting stronger and stronger.  It has had minimal fertiliser and spread its roots across the quality soil in the backyard.  Almost ready for a solid pruning.  Looking forward to it flowering in spring.  Easily one of the best plants in the yard and requires minimal effort, waterd sparingly though is well mulched.

Apple - Tropic Sweet 10/10

WildBuna's Edible Fruits
Update: 1364 days 16hrs

Comments: - Got as a small unhealthy rescue. Have had to slowly straighten up from almost horizontal and still it has produced fruit from year one! The apples have been small and too numerous for such a small tree but are still lovely and sweet. I do give it a water if we haven't had any rain for a couple of weeks... Last season we had 17 apples.

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, December

Planted: 2011

Height 0.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

After Fruiting

Pollination: No

When I Fertilise: Never

Pest Control:

I'm trying a couple of bag and net options at the moment. But so far there aren't enough to attract too much attention.
