Pistachio - Sirora - Female


High yielding female tree, pair with a male for pollination. Grows to be a small tree or shrub. Best suited to areas with cold winters and hot dry summers, requiring 1000 hours below 7.5 degrees in the winter. Summer and autumn need to be dry to prevent fungal problems. Pistachios are dioecious meaning male and females flowers are produced on separate trees, one of each will be required for fruit set. Spreading habit, wider than it is tall. Pistachios tend toward biennial cropping, meaning they alternately bear lots of nuts one year, then very little the following year

Black Sapote - Maher

I.bought this plant as part of my fruit tree orchard. The fruit is delicious and great to grow in the tropics. I received the tree from Daley's in super condition and planted straight away, where it has been powering.

Black Sapote - Maher

My maher black sapote is not self fertile. Every year flowers form only to fall off again. I have planted a seedling next to it in order for cross pollination to occur but it will take some time for the second tree to grow.

I have eaten chocolate pudding fruit before and really liked the taste. I have had flowers already but I pulled them off (which killed me :)) because I wanted the plant to focus on growth.
