Mine haven't flowered as yet lenn. I have two also, will keep a close eye on them. We might be able to swap some propagating material when we find out what mine are.

I noticed the ones in the BG are fruiting now. I'll have to stop in and pick up a few for seed.

They are not as sour as dav plums by a good margin. The NZ scientists were about to test them for a base of fruit pies for commercial production before the whole exotic fruit research had the plug pulled. The main scientist was very confident about it. It wasnt considered on the merits of its own taste=only as a base for apricot etc. as the flavour was considered complimentary.

Are u kidding..? I have tasted them and they are about 9 on the richter scale of sour (and I put limes and lemons at around 7..) They are bloody awful..?

There are heaps more worthy fruits for growing..?

Amanda, sour is not a bad thing, considering some fruit these days are all sugar and no flavour––but I don't even know what kei apples are, so pardon me for butting in :)

Maybe there are better selections of Kei apples?...it would be worth finding a great one and get that distributed - as they are very tough plant and that would be helpful for the many folks that live in semi-arid zones...

MaryT - the one I tried was not nice at all...and it was fully ripe and soft.
The lady told me they dry the fruit (and add sugar) and they taste better - a bit like apricots she says...

I would love some Kei apple seed if you still have them. I had tried the fruit in the BG before and went looking this year but I think they may have removed them for the highway expansion. I remember tasting the fruit and finding them quite pleasant. I am importing some from OS as well, so may get some improved varieties in the mix, in case you want to swap.

Yes, I bought some on eBay from someone in India ; alas they did not germinate. I'll try again as they are supposed to be easy to germinate..

They have some Kei apples growing at the Perth zoo, I tried a fruit once and it was not unpleasant, I would say it has a simular taste to apricots.

Mine is a little bit sour, but edible fresh. It is a bit more musky and aromatic than apricot. It makes nice chutney.
It has extremely long sharp spines.
