In full flower Nov09. Hardy tree requiring  low maintenance1/12/10 - poor flowering and not many fruits.  Interesting as 2010 has been a good rainfall year.  Also had the most overcast (bleak) weather pattern.

This one has been in for about a year and a half, and is growing very slowly.  This is probably due to the fact that it is right at the bottom of the garden, and I sometimes forget to water it.  Still stays nice and green though.

We've moved into a place with an already established tree, looks to be at least 8 years old. Huge amount of fruit, tree is regularly given water but is growing brilliantly in pretty much plain sand (the default here in Perth!) Lots of sun.
