Grumichama - Black (Seedling)

BJ11_old_address's Edible Fruits
Update: 2086 days 17hrs

I have planted these in the ground near a wall. They get a reasonable amound of indirect light, but are safe from a full blast of Perth summer sun. The soil is a rich sandy loam (70% compost and sheep poo rather than standard WA dust), and they are right next to a tap so I hope I don't forget to water them. With luck I will have a productive grumichama hedge in a few years! I have encouraged their branches to spread wide to create more width than height. They are planted about 1.3m apart. There is plenty of new growth - but I imagine it could be years before I get a hedge. They seem to be enjoying the location as there are considerable new leaves already.

I've put lots of coffee grounds around them, and now when I pull back a bit of the soil it is literally writhing with worms. Coffee is free (I take the grounds from work) and seems to appeal to these plants. 

I've added some trace elements to the soil as one plant is displaying iron deficiencies (but is otherwise quite healthy and green). They clearly like a bit of light, but I'm not sure how much they will like Perth summer sun - maybe the two more shaded plants will enjoy the summer more than their exposed sibling who appears to have grown a bit more during the winter. The veins in the leaves doesn't seem to be improving so I might need to add more elements and fertiliser in December

I've moved the plants into an area that is mostly shade - the plant that was in the shade was thriving, and the one in the sun looked deficient (leaves had almost no colour). I figured it was either genetic, a werid disease ... or just the wrong location. Amazingly ... within a month of being moved out of direct sun (albeit a bright area) the leaves have reacquired a deep green glossy colour! Grumichama clearly do not enjoy full Perth sun.

Jan 2012 - these guys finally seem happy. They need WA shade, a fair amount of water, more acid soil than occurs naturally in Perth, and lots of time (they don't grow that fast).

Dory's Edible Fruits
Update: 1931 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Very ornamental little tree. Has not fruited yet. Well, I found one tiny fruit last summer :-)

Sep 2011 - tree is in flowers now!!!

Hope to have some fruit soon.

Nov 2011 - harvesting my first crop!!! The fruit is very nice and sweet, love the flavour. A little bit like very sweet blackcurrant.

First crop not very big -about 0.5kg, hope it fruits more than once a year, not sure if it does.

February 2012 - the tree is flowering again, so more than one crop per year!!!!

Second crop not as big as the first one, fruit just starting to ripen (March 2012).

The tree is still not that big, I hope to have bigger crops in the future.

It is worth growing as it is compact, upright and requires little space comparing to other fruit trees.

Just planted (Aug09)

My large one just gave me a doz fruit (nov 2010) and I thought they were great! The flvour of the skin may be a little intense for some but the fruit pops out of the skin easy. Yum!

Both plants in 35L tree bags in the shade house. They were ok outside but are doing better in the shade house. Would recommend late afternoon shade in summer in hot, dry climates.

Grumichama - Black 9/10

Lily Blagus's Edible Fruits
Update: 1399 days 0hrs

Comments: -

The grumichama was my first purchase from Daleys about 5 years ago. It is growing just north of Brisbane, hot and humid and about 2/3 the rainfall of Brisbane. It is not all that fussed over really. When it is dry it has to put up with being a bit thirsty. Then a couple of months ago after some regular watering from me it flowered and fruited for the very first time. I couldn't believe my eyes!

The fruit looks for all the world like a cherry but with a little 'tutu'. The skin is not tough, certainly very tasty. The flavour was so good, a great surprise. I was hoping for something cherry-like but not really expecting it would be. The seeds (two in most of the fruits) were fairly small and very much like a cherry stone. The flavour while different to a real cherry, cherry was so very nice and sweet  in its own right that I am overjoyed, very happy with the tree. It has certainly earned its place in the garden. I harvested about three dozen fruits and the tree is only about 4 feet tall. I think that's a pretty fair crop for a tree that has to do it tough.

No pests noticed yet! I figure if ther have been none in 5 years there probably won't be any.

Question:

I am assuming I can prune it to stay about 6 feet tall. Would that be correct? If so should I just prune after fruiting? Would it fruit more than once a year if I gave it a regular watering?

Delicious fruit I used to grow at a previous property. Was one of the fruits that was universally liked by all who tasted it. Cherry sized fruit with one seed, and sweet white flesh with a slight tang to it. Birds LOVE it - must net when fruiting or you'll be lucky to get one. I found it only fruited when in med-sun or full sun.

Looks great, while fruiting or flowering or just with its glossy green leaves.  Fruits extreamly well.  I make a great jelly our of the berries and my family and friends can never get enough of it.  Fresh berries are delicous as well.  Only problem is that you have a fruit for  about 2 weeks then you have to wait another year for the pleasure again.

Brenton's Edible Fruits
Update: 854 days 23hrs

September 2014: Planted at various stages and then transplanted into pots.  Accumulating several for a garden hedge.  They respond well to a good drink and plenty of organic material in the soil.  Plenty of new growth on them this spring.  Great colours and increasing in height substantially.  Will be planting into ground in November.  Overall a really lovely looking plant.

November 2014: This is still growing well but doesn't love full sun at this age.  Still waiting to plant in ground (another 2 or 3 weeks away)  With two more from Daley's on the way they will surely make a fantastic hedge in my front garden.  Keep these well watered with nutrients in the soil.

May 2015: I now have five grumichamas growing in the front yard and I'm looking forward to them creating a lovely hedge.  These really rely on a good source of water to stay green and vibrant.  I've since added water crystals to the area (and this is the only garden bed where these have been added in the yard).  Without water thy quickly droop and get very sad looking.  With the addition of water crystals I have found that they are much happier and are content with rain being the only source of water.  I do occaisionally add fertiliser to them.  I have mulched these with leftover potting mix, though it is not as thick as elsewhere in the yard.  I lovely plant when they are looking healthy and one that would be very hard to overwater.

I like the fruit. The tree is still small and so not much fruit as yet, but it's very tasty. It makes a good screen, so have planted two more. Get plenty of flowers in Spring, but most fall off in spite of regular watering, so get only limited fruit.

Looks good.

Update - Oct 2013

I increased the shade  because leaves had become rather yellow. (increased shade by planting a papaya to the north of it). Looking a bit better now, and finally starting to grow.

In 2012 I planted a total of 3 grumichamas, all in medium to full sun. This seems to have made the folliage rather yellow. Growth rate - very slow.

Update - Apr2016

I finally got a few flowers on one of my grumis last year, (but no fruit)

Update - Aug 2017 - One finally fruited, somewhat out of season in April 2017. About 15 little fruit, very pretty and quite tasty. The other two are still a bit yellow-leaved though.

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.

Been in pot too long, about to put in ground - will hopefully make a revival.  Revival achieved.  Lots of new leaves and growth (well for a grumichama anyway).

Covered in new growth as of August 2010. Can't wait to see what it will do over spring and summer, maybe it might even fruit.

No fruit and not that much growth in height but it has bushed up. No fruit, i have a feeling I will be waiting a few years for that. May 2011

Purchased 3 plants about 3 years ago,  2 Black & 1 Yellow.   They are all doing well but as yet no flowers or fruit.   I Water them when needed and fertilize about 3 times a year with Blood & Bone & Dynamic Lifter mix.  They are growing in the light shade of my Pawpaw trees as are most of my smaller fruiting plants and appear to be quite happy.

I only just got this plant and can't wait untill it shows it's first flower, Seems to be an easy plant to keep happy aslong as you remember to try to only watter with rain water otherwise it may show signs of tip burn from the ph beeing a bit high, I've used Quincan mixed in with my potting mix to help with drainage and mix a little pine bark and peat moss to help lower the ph, It seems to be working a treat with this one and my yellow one

Comments: - My latest addition to the garden.   I was fortunate that I was at a local produce store and saw this one (1.5 m tall) for $40 when there were smaller ones, 1/3 the size for $30.  I know they can be slow growing so imagine my delight. I purchased it straight away and into the ground it went.  I'm a bit worried that it was pot bound - hopefully it will be fine and worth the gamble.
