Davidson Plum NSW (Seedling) 9/10

September 2014: Planted in May 2014.  Transplanted during heavy rain in August.  I was pleasantly suprised by how substantial the root system had developed.  Spring has brought about some great new growth (love the red tinge on the new leaves).  Watered well, plenty of mulch and organic rich soil.

November 2014: This plant continues to surprise. This flowered really heavily in October after putting on new growth in September.  They appear like little furry red balls on the plant.  It has since put on more new growth from late October.  It does seem to be a slow grower when compared to others in the garden (particularly citrus) but it is really rewarding to see this native doing so well.  This enjoys water and nutrients.  Fruiting in the first year with fruit forming in mid to late November.

December 2014: First fruit ripened.  Quite small and very sour.  Plenty of flavour though.  Looking forward to trying more.

February 2015: The tree has been growing well considering it is in a considerable amount of sun for this rainforest plant!  Tried to have a seed germinate and had some success.

Hi Phil, I live in Lismore and have just begun the journey of growing my own fruit. I love plums but thought they required chilling hours???? Are these plums sweet/sour/tangy? I am growing my plants mainly in pots because I rent and want to take my plants with me if need be - would this suit the davidson? Also could you advise me as to a local market that has some of these fruits for sale? Thank you Phil :-)
phil@tyalgum says... [2961 days 5hrs ago]
They are not related to European/Japanese plums at all, so don't require chilling as they are native to Northern NSW. You often see the fruit for sale at the farmers markets, I have some seedlings coming on if you want some.

Beatiful rough-edged foliage, a native rainforest tree with fruiting potential. Not many fruiting trees will suit shady spots but this is a natural understory plant. Needs a bit of water. Some in pots and two in the ground.

Comments: - Has had a heck of a time surviving: Top eaten off by the dog (Twice!!!), Forgotten in a black pot in the sun without water for a month, lived in a construction site with regular breakages of branches and a number of other incidents. Because of this it is already coppicing, though it's only 30cm tall and stunted. recently moved it to a final, hopefully well-chosen position.
