Marsdenias - Bush Banana

    3 responses

Linton starts with ...
Marsdenia australis (Native Pear).

The Marsdenia plants pictured have survived outside over Winter unscathed, remaining strong and healthy. Also webshots showing fruit.

Whilst they didn't put on any new growth over the colder months I expect they will take off once it gets warmer. Hoping they will grow to fruiting maturity. Anyone with experience in these please let me know, thanks.

To be continued.........

Just an update on the Marsdenia plants which have now grown as high as the roof of my house. They are now having their first flowers so if they make fruit I need to find some recipes for them.

All that I've found so far is that the young fruit can be eaten fresh and when older they can be baked....maybe taste like Banana? Thanks.

I was interested in growing these but from what I read they tasted like peas when fresh so I passed, went for growing sweet apple berries to try instead and tryinf to propagate some cocky apple seeds now.

they are known as native pear or bush banana because of the shape rather than taste. It is used as a green veg, like peas or choko etc. Good Luck!
