Growing strongly from the time it was planted. Started to flower a few weeks ago, about 4 months after planting. Didn't set any fruit. 2 nights of frost set it back as it lost all of its leaves, but is now growing well at the start of spring. Have read that I might need both a male and a female plant for fruit. Daley's should have made this clear in their description. Have had to buy a second tree. Second tree growing well.

Comments: - male or female, I underestimated these little fruits, they are tangy, with hints of banana, pineapple and papaya. Those who love papaya will possibly be disappointed due to the size.

The first tree to fall over in the January 08 rains. A female, this turned out to be a good thing as I had two other female trees. I replaced it with a male tree and now have lots of fruit.

Ironically more than 18 months on this tree has not actually died, it is thriving in a non dying kind of a way in my well drained, slowly acumulating compost heap. 

And in 2010 my undead tree is fruiting - it is still in the compost heap and has to go, it is almost time for it to die again.  February 2011 I finally chopped it down, before it roots dug up the compost bins.

I purchased 4 plants last year from Daleys as you need both male and female. They are not doing overly well. They seem to sprout and grow new leaves then die off. They have done that 4 times now. Maybe someone might know what the problem is. I certainly have not given up as yet and they are still alive.
