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... [3208 days 0hrs 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.

Emma1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3340 days 15hrs

Comments: -

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.

Pademelon1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1539 days 15hrs

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.
