Plug for Tamborine Dragonfruit Farm

    14 responses

starling starts with ...
Gave the guys at Tamborine Dragonfruit Farm a call recently and was highly impressed with the service. The guy I spoke to was incredibly helpful, and went through the best planting methods and ideal planting locations(didn't sound put out, either, was happy to do this).

They have a variety of cultivars (I bought six, including one with a lemonade flavour) and the prices are considerably cheaper than somewhere like bunnings. They agreed to send me more advanced cuttings at no extra cost, also.

The online webstore is simple to navigate and the shipping prices are great.

Anyhow, if you're in the market for dragon fruit cuttings I really recommend giving Tamborine Dragon Fruit Farm a look-in.Very positive experience, cannot fault it.

Cheers

If you ever come across a spineless yellow, I'd dearly love to know about it. Oh, I have your pink banana plant ready to go, I'll try to get to the PO this week.

We sure are at the shallow end of the gene pool with dragonfruit even with red fox and tamborine.
I don't know if there are any spineless large yellows in Australia and maybe the fruit has been imported.When the Israelis developed their large spineless yellow hybrid it was rated lower than desert king. There is a large spineless yellow species in Ecuador probably another Megalanthus that could be undescribed.

I picked my last spined yellow only a couple of days ago, being small, it certainly made up in taste.
I bought a spineless yellow fruit from a Cabramatta fruit shop in Sydney, so they are around, could have been imported though.
There's a seller on EBay claiming to have large spineless yellows but won't part with any cuttings, seedlings only.

Yeah, diggers were advertising them last year, clearly had images of spineless yyellow or 'white' df on the website. Not sure if they just took it from the web for advertising purposes? I've got a seedling, but don't have space, with a few good varieties falling in my lap (ouch!).

Can't wait for that pink banana John, its going to have pride of place in my courtyard. I'm trying to get an ice-cream banana (blue java) too, I'm happy to pay for a sucker if you have one, everywhere is sold out of them.

The florida gold papaya seeds I planted have STILL not sprouted and I'm starting to worry they aren't going to. Worst case scenario I just send you the seeds, hopefully you can get them to sprout, I'm not having much luck with any of the papaya seeds I've planted. Some didn't come cheap either.

Here's my dragonfruit grove trellises. I put these up yesterday (the crossbeams are actually very old red cedar, not fun to drill through). Bit iffy on the placement but really not many other places to put them, wanted to keep them close (ish) to the house. They are set into a declining hill,so they'll drain well, but I might put up a stone barrier or something to stop the sand beds running off with the rain. In retrospect I shouldn't have stuck them so close to the shed; I wont be able to walk behind the grown plants very easily, and I'm worried the light coming of the tin might burn them. Might have put up some heshan. Too late now though, they're concreted into the ground. Picture is of two, I set in 4 total in a row on the advice of the DFF guy, who says its better to do this for fruit set.

I picked up this Honey White about 2 years back when I was looking for new varieties to try and it sounded ok so I thought I'd give it a go. It threw one flower this season and set a fruit, just one, and I picked it tonight and cut it open. Hot pink and 16 brix. No idea what variety it actually is, but it's pretty tasty and definitely not white. This is the second time from this grower that the variety has been wrong.

He's a nice guy but yeah, Pretty disorganised. I don't think I'll seek out any more dragons, at this point I'm just working on getting more of the ones I have.

By the way that thing I thought was going to be a Harrisia turned out to be an epiphyllum. Very exciting.

Well, it has happened again. Picked a beautiful Natural Mystic tonight and after waiting patiently for 2 years for this plant to flower and produce an amazing magenta/pink fruit, massive disappointment. Big, awesome looking fruit, very white flesh. Dann Jarvis, I should kick your ass!!!

Dann Jarvis from mass spectrum botanicals. A little dodgy me thinks.

Haven't dealt with him before. You could always name and shame him in tff. I would. He's on there quite a bit.

I stopped dealing with him after the 1 and only order I made as it took so long to get it sent. Have seen him on tff but don't give him any time. I'll keep letting Matt look after everything.
