Brazilian Cherry can I dig up a self sewn seedling

    5 responses

Cas Allan starts with ...
My neighbours have a row of Brazilian Cherries along their driveway between their property and mine. The fruit is fantastic and I have made Cherry Jelly Jam this year to the delight of my family and friends. I'd like to know whether a self sewn seedling could be transplanted from under the parent tree into a pot and would this fruit?

It most definitely will but it may not taste the same as parent plant as you could almost gaurantee it has been cross pollinated.

Brazil cherry plants from Daley's are also seedlings, so I think you can certainly grow the self sown seedling successfully and can expect to get fruit. If the seedling is small, it will just take longer.

I dug several up out of horrendous soil and transplanted them into pots. The seedlings are roughly 3 inches tall. Each one now has a new set of two leaves and I'm really pleased with them. I had them under an old lime tree for a bit of dappled sun in this hot weather and I've just started to move them out to sun harden.

Unfortunately Brazilian cherries are listed as an environmental weed on the Gold Coast http://www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au/documents/bf/environmental_weeds_web.pdf). This is because they are fertile from seed and quite fast growing. They are spread into bushland by fig birds.

Consider one of the less weedy options (such as acerola cherry, which can be grown from cuttings, or jaboticaba).

Yes I have read that they are considered an environmental weed and I can understand why. My neighbours have at least 5 of these shrubs. They've pruned them into a hedge. However they do flower and fruit twice a year. The owners don't pick the fruit and only rake up dropped fruit when it is all over their driveway. I see the birds on the driveway picking up the fruit and flying off. We have an environmental wetlands less than 500 metres from us. Please be happy to know that I net all of my fruit trees. I have seen what introduced species do. Mine will also be kept in pots forever. We rent and we take our garden with us.
