Want to be the first of our friends to grow an apple tree in Cairns!!

I have been told there is an apple orchard of some 200 of these North of Port Douglas... so I am keen to try this out!

Newly planted in Semi shaded position/ more sun but sheltered while young from hot afternoon sun. Prepared base with a mixure of sand, quincan, potting mix, and compost.  Going by the theory of needing loads of drainage in the wet season but also many plants doesn't really like our hot "full sun", so filtered sun would be better especially while young.

We have chooks that free range under also. loads of free fertiliser :)

Pollination: Self Pollination

Planted 2008 and seemed to be going strong but curled up its toes in Winter 2009 which was very disappointing.  Have just received a replacement which I will plant on the weekend so hopefully I will not have the same problem.

The replacement tree is going well.  Hopefully it will survive.  Has had a few bugs on the new growth which I have controlled manually at this stage - not sure what they were - little yellow bugs about the size of a flea.

No bugs worrying it now that it has matured a little more.  No flowers yet, though hope there will be some to help its companion along.

Have grown at previous property, and they really are like a Red Delicious. I didn't really want to grow apples again as they are high maintenance plants, but they are my son's favourite fruit.  At least now I know what I'm in for!  At least there should be less pruning, as this is a dwarf.

When growing your own apples, apart from the obvious benefit of having super fresh fruit, you can avoid all the stronger chemicals used in commercial orchards which are sprayed frequently.

Planted: 2012

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Tropic Sweet

Pest Control:

Be vigilant with fungal sprays (organic ok), and use exclusion nets as soon as fruit sets - keeps out bugs, birds, bats, possums.

Dwarf Apple - Tropical Anna (Grafted) 10/10

DesKing1's Edible Fruits
Update: 910 days 7hrs

Comments: -

   I love apples, but I'm sick of the tasteless ones sold in supermarkets, so three trees should keep us going for hopefully nearly six months of the year.

   Bought from Daleys and planted mid Nov 2017 (Gold Coast) in a garden bed next to a dwarf tropic sweet (centre) and dwarf dorsett golden (on right). These three form a triple planting about 45cm apart under the Dave Wilson Nursery backyard orchard concept. The entire bed has a thick layer of cane mulch. At present (Jan 2018) they are about 90cm tall, and will be pruned regularly so they grow no taller than 150-180cm.

   I fertilise with varying ratios and amounts of Dynamic Lifter or Rooster Booster, sulphate of potash, and blood and bone at the beginning of spring, summer and autumn. I also give fortnightly foliar sprays of a diluted solution of Seasol, Powerfeed for flowers and fruit, soluble sulphate of potash, and Epsom salts during the non-dormant months.

   I use a soil moisture meter, and water the trees as necessary.

   All three apple trees are very healthy and growing vigorously, and the grafts are very strong.


Height 90 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Dwarf tropic sweet and dwarf golden dorsett

Pest Control: Occasional Eco-Neem spray, and copper spray during dormancy. When fruiting the fruit will be bagged against fruit fly.

Can any one get any other types of tropical apples? I know there are a few different types but eveyone is out of stock. I need minimum chill types because its only going to get warmer as the city spreads out towards my place.

I am wondering myself whether or not these would really be suitable for coastel north of Brisbane weather. I think not actually and I wondered what sort of climate you are ine. What would be the lowest temperature you get down to in winter?

Our Tropical Apple - Anna - was thriving, and had small but delicious, crisp, red-delicious type apples. Then a bobcat driver accidentally ran over it. I still have a Dorsett Golden as a pollinator, but our replacement Anna has yet to fruit.

This tree is sited very near the absorption trench and never looks unhappy.
