Planted as a bare rooted. Fruited within its 1st year. Was amazed with the results. Fruit is very sweet, eventhough you have to wait until its fully ripe. Recommended, no hassle tree.

Prune in winter.

I've heard good things about the fruit, and I'm hoping that the plant will thrive in its current location and allow winter sun to reach the house, and block out the worst of the summer sun.

Within weeks of planting it is putting on new growth - so I'm hoping that this is a good sign about the soil improvements and location.

Unfortunately as of Jan 2011 many of the leaves have been burnt by the WA sun (the tap root just needs to get a bit deeper). Additional water is helping the plant put on new growth.

Remaining leaves were removed June 2011. The plant appears healthy and strong despite the brutal summer

May 2012 - leaves have come off on their own. No autumn colour, I hope that it isn't crook.
