Japanese Raisin

This is a very pretty tree that the sugar gliders love as do the native and regular bees, I would plant this as a shade tree for summer as it loses its leaves for winter , a very pretty shape | Noelle Maxwell - Byron Myocum , NSW 19-Nov-2013

Japanese Raisin (Seedling) 5/10

Amethyst's Edible Fruits
Update: 2091 days 21hrs

Comments: -

Spreading habit, interesting toothed leaves, starting to provide reasonable shade. The trunk also plays host to some lovely leafy lichens. Unfortunately I don't think Brisbane climate suits it very well. Did survive The Gap / Keperra storm in November 2009 so, credit there.

Update November 2013. I removed this plant in 2012. It grew to a nice size but it never had flowers and was riddled with red spider mite which made the leaves look awful.

Planted: 2008

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Summer

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Sheep, horse

When I Fertilise: Yearly

Pest Control:

Red spider mite is the bane of this plant and it is controlled using Malathon (yes, not eco-friendly I know but, darn effective).

Maybe its your humidity that spider mites enjoy - mines about 5yo and has nice leaves and hardly water in summer - no flowers or fruit yet either - may take 4 more years.

planted in the wrong spot - a very dry area/full sun and it didn't survive the back to back 40 degree days, but prior to that was doing ok.

Japanese Raisin (Seedling) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 103 days 14hrs

Comments: - Seeds accidentally went through the washing machine in a pocket but then germinated 100% when planted out. Growth rate is fast but they don't seem like hot winds or even hot temperatures. The leaves burn readily in summer here - which makes the tree not look all that good. It's a shame as the "fruit" tastes really good...I think it's tastes like banana cake - but raisin is close enough also. Our trees have been moved twice now and handled that well. I am hoping that they won't burn so easily once their root systems are more established.
They seem to like the clay soils further south - where it's cooler and good apple growing country. They readily drop their lower branches as they age.

Planted: 2015

Height 4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Slow release organic chook manure pellets

Question:

Should I be pruning them - they are very lanky and sparse - especially as they drop their lower branches. I don't want to spoil their natural shape if possible?
