Drumstick Trees

Any chance that drumstick trees would grow on the south coast of nsw? I guess Canberra would be out of the question?

TRY BOAB

I tried to grow Moringas but they always died here in Melbourne. I think it would be even harder in Canberra.

How about trying an African Boab? It's easy to grow in Melbourne and is widely used as a food source in Africa.

The baobabís leaves, fruit, and seeds are all edible. The fruit has 10 times the vitamin C of an orange, which explains the tart flavour and is used to make pancakes.

You don't see them here except in the gardens because I think that people are afraid they will get too big. But don't worry, they won't be big in the time while you're alive.

The one in the picture I have been growing in a pot for about 3 years. Cheers.

I grew one very well here in Bunbury, outside - to 2m. We only get very light dustings of frost 1 or 2 times in winter though. It was totally deciduous in winter and I didn't get drumsticks because it flowered too late in the season for them to form before it went deciduous.
I grew it against a brick wall in a north facing garden - where I grow our bananas and other warmth loving sub tropicals. It seemed to like the rich soil in there also.
I gave it away in the end...not really worth it in my warm-temperate/mediterranean climate.
