Fruit trees that are shade trees

    6 responses

Justin starts with ...
It's probably this week's heat that's started me thinking down these lines, but what fruit trees are good as shade trees? Especially for Melbourne?

Thanks.

You could try white sapotes or avocados?

Talking about shade trees Peter , how have your plants in your glasshouse fared in this extreme heat? Must be hard to avoid cooking them.

Not exactly a fruit, but have you thought of pecans? They are a very attractive tree, but a bit slow growing. Lovely autumn foliage if your area is cold enough.

hello jantina,
yea pretty hot in there.
a few days ago i took out the passion fruits and put them in the shade
but even thats hot enough for them.
all that i have in the glasshouse now are some pawpaws, dragonfruit and
grumachuma. the pawpaws dont mind some
heat as long as they are kept moist.
most of my passionfruits i have in pots
along a fence line are now like
smiths crisps.

Hopefully the stems are still green and will reshoot, it's sad to lose treasured plants.
