Beautiful, how long did it take to fruit Keith? What's you're lowest temp in winter?
I have to grow mine in a pot due to my climate. I'm not game to put it out in the top paddock just in case, I lost one last winter. My fault, it was very low on the block and we had to have the coldest day in 63 years.

NICE , I have not yet got fruit on my tree , but eaten many before . Have tried a few select cultivars grown by a local mate . Amazing how some trees will bear at very different times ,, comment by David Chandlee is that different sources of seed will give this . Looks like you have a special shelter constructed Keith was it for cold protection or birds ?

Trikus, shelter is a mozzie net to keep out fruit fly mainly but should stop fruit bats too.

John, the tree fruited in about 2 years. Coldest temp around here can be below zero but we have had some very mild winters and this tree hasn't seen anything under about 6 degrees. We have three other abui trees and they all have fruit on them.

Mike

If you still have two varieties of Abiu, any chance of spitting a few seeds of each in an envelope and sending it my way ?
When they become available that is.

thanks
