Panama Berry Dead

    10 responses

davewastech starts with ...
Hi gardeners,

OK, so my Panama Berry has joined the list of Panamas that have died after a southern winter.
Question - Has anybody had success in growing Panama Berry in frost-free climates as cool as Sydney? eg NSW coast. And in the ground. (I'm near Chatswood)
By success I mean the tree still being alive and healthy after about 4 years.

Thanks,
Dave

I have one which fruited for a couple of years and then for some reason the trunk has split at the base. It is still alive and producing fruit however growth is very slow and I will replace it.

Mine started to recover its leaf growth after winter, then turned sick and died, all within about 2 months. Probably root rot.
It had previously been incredibly vigorous and the fruit were nice. Quite sad to lose it.

Mine has been growing in a bansai bag for two years near Wollongong a few hundred metres from the beach. No problems at all. I want to get rid of it though as I don't like the taste of the fruit.

I was given a tropical plant a few months ago & have had trouble identifying it until I watched a YouTube video by "self sufficient me" and concluded by the leaf shape that it was a Panama berry. This plant has grown very quickly in a large pot and still looks healthy even in Winter. I live in Wallsend, Newcastle, NSW. The guy in the YouTube video said they are very tasty?

I like the taste. A rather simple juicy sweet taste though. So I've planted another. Looks ok, but as winter progresses it will start to look shabby.

In Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia it's a very common street tree for tough locations in concrete footpaths.
But they don't like cold winters.

This is not panama berry. If you put the two leaves side by side you will see the several differences. You may have a bush fig tree.

I agree with Denise that a sandpaper fig may be the true identity of the non-panama

Can't keep them alive here just north of Sydney, frost free. I've lost many, including the yellow variety I grew from seed, suppose to be a more cold hardy variety. Now keeping them in pots in a hothouse.
