The tree is a little willywally which serves me right for saving unnamed rejected plants from junk shops.

November 2010, my first flower buds are forming up the stems, like little people doing yoga in the leaf axis.

Canistel (Seedling) 8/10

Waterfall's Edible Fruits
Update: 816 days 24hrs

Comments: -

Just a small plant at the moment, it was very leggy when purchased it from forbidden fruits but the wind took care of that and blew the top off. Not sure this tree likes Sydney weather, lets see if it takes off next spring once its established.

Seems to be frozen in time, not dead, just not doing anything really. I expect it will take off in spring.

No growth last year at all, something better happen this year or its getting mulched.

Comments: - Quite a good looking tree with big wavy leaves. However all of its leaves were dropped due to frost damages in early spring. I should have given it a bit more protection!
