Hi Correy. Unfortunately, I dont really have any dwarf trees with ripe fruit at the moment. So, I have posted some pics of my daughter and trees with unripe fruit and a pepino in fruit (I know its not a tree but thought I would put a pic up anyway).

The second photo is of a variegated kumquat.

The third pic is of a dwarf Washington navel (Flying Dragon).

The first one is of a little pepino - my daughter is eating a Ballerina Maypole crab apple in this photo. She loves them, even unripe!

The last one is a dwarf Meyer lemon (Lots a Lemons).

The white covering is a bra washing mesh bag that is over the fruit.

You might notice the shade, its from a gum tree full of those red tail black cockatoos, that lurve the eat apples.

The benefit of the tree is that it keeps
the tree cool in winter and helps to grow apples in marginal country.

Bob

PS Give the voucher to Leona

Ohh, yeah the clothes peg is to induce
a wide crotch angle on the shoot.

I cinctured the buds to make them grow,
as the apical dominance in this makes it really top heavy.

These are a few of my dwarf trees. The standard dwarf peach is a favourite, it does not have any fruit at the moment though. It is at its best in the spring when it flowers, it is absolutely gorgeous. The red shahtoot mulberry is a new planting, it even has two green mulberries on it. The small citrus is a meyer lemon which is just starting to form its fruits.

Hi from the hot and wet,
Here is Tony, Darney the dog and my Village Dwarf coconut palm. It is over 12 years old and has been producing nuts for around 9 years. The parent plant came from Sabai Island in the Torres Strait. My palm has a bit of lean now thanks to Cyclone Larry which went straight over us 2 years ago but the palm is back to producing plenty of nuts.

Roger replies to anonymous to ask anonymous to google my name. You my find that I was the senior inspector/field officer in just about all the banana black Sigatoka leaf disease incursions in Australia particularly the the Tully area ( the largest successful eradication of black Sigatoka in the world) and you may note that my village Dwarf nuts were not directly imported from the Torres Straits.Black Sigatoka is specific to many banana varieties and possibly some closely related plants but not Coconuts. It is good to see anonymous is somewhat aware of the seriousness of this disease.

Here is another plant not from the Torres Straits. It is a potted 3 year old grafted Nagami or sweet cumquat. It is next to my 15 year old planted Nagami that has been fruiting since planted. I like the sweet cumquats as they can be eaten straight from the tree. Pest tough so no sprays are used and prolific producers but like most citrus in the tropics they are ready to eat before they get full colour and yes anonymous, I was also part of the Papaya Fruit fly eradication effort.

Hi,
This is picture of our dwarf fruiting apple Our daughter Casey is holding our Manchester Terrier Porscha and Just Jonty is in the background. Our dogs love fruit so we need to be careful that they don't pinch the apples. I have just done a patio garden of dwarf fruit and dwarf citrus with under plantings of thyme and strawberries. looking forward to the fruit

Patrick Wu says...
I've got 7 pawpaw trees in my Perth garden but only this one is a dwarf form. All the others are well over 4 metres tall but this one started fruiting last year when it was less than a meter tall with fruits down to ground level literally. This year it remained short - 1.2 metre tall. Many of my friends are in love with this tree and are now growing seedlings from its fruits. It does better in winter than its taller neighbours as the blowing wind from the shore don't get to it as much due to the short stature. Two other tall normal pawpaw trees got decapitated by the winter wind last year, but have re-shooted in spring and producing fruits again.

Everyone who uploaded a pic should have their $15 voucher emailed to them. If not just tell me here and I will fix it up.

The competition will be open for one year eg. enough time for all your fruit trees to produce unless they are too young.

So next time you see fruit ripening up in your backyard remember to get the digital camera out and upload them to this page.

Hi Leona, all my pawpaws were grown from seed. They all come from the same fruit but only one turned out to be dwarf. They take 18 months in Perth to produce fruit for me. They sit still in winter and the leaves turn a bit yellow but they will revive again in spring.

Red Shatoot Mulberry on dwarf rootstock produces great tasting berries. It is about 2.5m tall and accross. I prune it heavily.

The although the Wax Jambu (Syzigium Aqueum) is not a true "dwarf" it produces a rediculous amount of fruit for me and is only 2m tall.

Leona: I haven't had a white Mulberry for a while. These red ones are similar in that they have little tang and they are not sour when unripe. But they taste a little more like the round black ones. They taste like mulberry jam! But perhaps the superb flavour comes at a price: I don't think this variety is as tough or as reliable as the traditional round black fruiting types.

HI Corey and Leona,

In reply to your questions....

The tree lives in our courtyard which recieves from 4 to 6 hours of sun a day depending on the season. Due to it being potted it requires water daily in summer and once or twice a week during winter. I fertilise it twice a year.

Cheers

This little battler of a Dwarf Mulberry is about 7 years old and after being transplanted about 3 times in that time, it has finally found a home in a corner of our backyard (under the neighbour's toreliana (?) no less). While it should be losing its leaves at this time of year, it is busy producing its 4th flush of fruit since September. Alas, I don't get to eat many berries because my children devour them even before the birds!

This is our little trooper 4yr Dwarf Imperial mandarin tree pictured with my 3yr daughter. It always trys to produce fruit and it has 3 at the moment. It has had an unfortunate life of been moved around the garden into the ground and out of large pots . Just when i thought things where going good i discover (well actually came to the realisation after 18months) that the couch grass had infested to the trunks of all my citrus trees, and was thriving on my tank waterings. Plus that trying to remove it every few months was futile . So this one is in the process of being dug up and root barrier dug to 30cm to stop the grass, then new soil will have to go in as even the smallest part of couch or its seed will become rampant in no time.

I have 5 citrus in the ground to dig up and 6 fruit trees that i dug up a few weeks ago to dig holes for and place in the root barrier. Unfortunately the couch is just relentless unless you use chemical warfare or block it.

Once this process if complete over winter we plant to purchase 12 new dwarf trees to espalier and have our own suburban orchard.

Hi, Yes some of the roots directly around the trunk ( due to removal of alot of couch grass) and in the trench around the tree are exposed. THe tree is kept moist so that it will grow some new roots before i transplant it into it's new spot. This method is in one of my gardening books and i thought that i would give it a try rather than just dig up the tree and replant it the same day.

Very cool Anon, You look like a peach enthusiast. I am trying to get fruit on a dwarf peach they really don't like shade and after I moved our 10 year old peach into a pot in the sun we finally got one flower. I have big hopes for this next peach season.

Hi Eddy, after 25 years as "banana inspector" forgive me if I appear a bit over the top. If you are looking for a dwarf banana the ultimate is Dwarf Parfitt a Cavendish like but only 2 m high. But it doesn't like cool areas. The most cool tolerant could be Dwarf Ducasse or Santa Catarina Prada-dwarf lady finger (please excuse any spelling mistakes as I have had a big day) the other not to be forgotten is the dwarf Cavendish or China banana. Any way in Victoria I expect that you will have little problem in quarantine issues but more problem with growing. After saying that , on the last couple of visits to Europe, I saw banana plants in every major town I visited jn Italy Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Weather they produce edible fruit or not I don't know. The photo is of a not so well fed dwarf ducasse, The bunches get much bigger.

Kath, I have tasted both the native bananas Musa banksii and M. jackeyi and their fruit is full of hard seeds like rough little rocks.M. banksii is the most common and wide spread native banana and it only grows naturally south to around Townsville so I don't like your chances of growing it in NSW. Also note that movement of banana planting material has legal restrictions.

Hi Correy/Roger,
Correy is the competition still open?
I have been looking all through the photos & wishing I had a dwarf fruit tree I could enter in to this competition when towards the end dwarf bananas came up. I have a dwarf cavendish I was given by a friend but nothing was mentioned about any restrictions. Yet the banana came from a grower of unique fruit trees & vines. I am aware of panamar disease as I saw a piece on Gardening Aust recently. Do I have to remove it? It seems to be very healthy. No discolouration on the leaves.
Do either of you know where I can get a dwarf coconut palm from?
Cheers Angie

I think you can grow the palm with a usual coconut you buy at the shop. I didn't do this because I'm not sure if the coconut palm is as bad as a queen palm for all what grows underneath.
It would be a nice addition maybe in the front yard but then the palm must grow absolutely straight that no nut falls on someone's head.

Not the slightest bit worried about nuts falling on people heads. I mean, it might knock some sense into my sons!

I know how to grow coconuts - found out how to do it in Vanuatu. But I need the coconut to still be in the 'pod' . Do we grow coconuts in Queensland? the ones in the supermarket are from Fiji?

Great pictures. I'm growing many different tropical plants in Melbourne, but no Paw Paws. Do you think the dwarf one is more cold tolerant than the normal type? Might be worth a try here as the Mangoes do quite well too.

Hi Correy,
Here is my husband Bob on his Batricar looking at our dwarf Meyer Lemon puchased from you in 02/08. Also our dw Marsh's Seedless Grapefruit, same date. The other trees we bought at the same time are all doing well. Dw orange, dw Lime, Dw Mulberry & Strawberry Guava. I lost 1 of my haelnuts, my own mistake & hope to replace it soon. Also my chilli tree is looking good, but the winter is going to be cold here in Grenfell this year I suspect. Cheers Fay.

What counts as a dwarf? My eureka lemon tree had 13 lovely fruits on one off-shoot at 2.5 yrs and 1m high. My yellow strawberry/cherry guava has 11 (at 10cm high!)- the branch is tiny and plant only 1 yr old! poor buggar! it's the most precocious (sp?) fruit ive ever seen! (and the fruit are lovely - Dalys must get on to selecting the best of these - it's (and the red) got amazing commercial potential)

My Nectazee, (Dwarf Nectarine). In its second year it put on an abundance of small fruit which turned ripe but too small to eat.

Hopefully this year it should be ok to go.

I have since planted a full size Nectarine (Fantasia) and a Plum x Peach (Pleach). Both bought as 3 year old trees.
Around December it should be exctiting to see all 3 fruiting.

Hi Jason, cool pics!

What size pot is your nectazee in? and what potting medium did you use? Any aged manure/blood and bone u put in during planting?

Is Pic 1 taken after potting it and Pic 2 taken in spring or autumn?

How does the nectazee fruit taste like?

Thanks!

50 Ltr I think. Its the largest size you can get in those cheap plastic pots from bunnings.

I used a small amount of dynamic lifter and a generous amount of sheep poo mixed into a good potting mix. I then used some more sheep poo on top to act like a mulch.

Pic 1 is a year or two after planting. Need to investigate that.(2008-08-20)

Pic 2 is out of order (2009-02-03)

Pic 3 is Dec fruiting (2008-12-13)

I have since planted the nectazee into the ground. Nice little spot for it and I didnt want too many pots around. I have all my citrus in pots as i dont trust their size. Lemon and Lime in pic 2 above and a new orange and mandarin just recently.

Amanda, I bought my dwarf peach and nectarines from a Sunday Market bare-rooted. Both full of fruit the second year, but the taste was very disapointing especially the peach althoutgh it was very juicy it was tasteless. Maybe I bought the wrong variety - colour was light green/yellow. Beautifull looking trees, so I dug it up and put it in a pot and replaced it with an almond tree. No pics yet, maybe when the leaves return.

The nursery lady said her one's took a few years to fruit - so I guess I will just have to wait....but if they don't taste good they will get the chop! I am partial to the white flesh nect's n peaches..delicioso!

Being dwarf means they escape the ravages of the wind here. I was really dissapointed in my mandarins like that too (it's an imperial or emporer) perfect in everyway but boring flavour! :(

MINI FEIJOA BUSH, I have been breeding mini feijoas and have a breakthrough.A flower bud is developing from near ground level and the seedling bush is only 8cms tall.The juvenile leaves are 20-25mm and adult leaves about 5mms. I will try to send a photo in a few days when the flower opens.I am working on a number of new crops, with a pink flowering strawberry now on the market.

Hi Peter,
Have just been doing some research on apple trees as I would love to grow some but was concerned I wouldn't be able to grow them living in Hervey Bay. I noticed you were in Rocky and saw your trees and just wanted to ask you what kind they are, are yours planted in full sun or shade and is there anything in particular you had to do soil wise to grow them. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Donna
