Rare Fruit Swap/Sale in Melbourne South/East?

    212 responses

Sort:
lynne starts with ...
Hi
I'm wondering if anyone who has surplus rare fruit (anything that cannot easily be bought in the shops) would like to swap or sell their fruits? We currently have prickly pears and are happy to swap them for white sapotes, any type of guava, wampi etc. We're in Mt Waverley. If you have fruits you'd like to swap or sell or if you live on the other side of Melbourne, if you list the fruits, there may be other people who would be interested in them.

Lynee that is actually a brilliant idea.

Maybe we could set up a web address attached to daleys dedicated to your idea.

eg http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/swap/

You enter your exact address and what fruit you have and then other people enter their address and you could get email alerts when people have rare fruit they are willing to swap or sell in your local area.

Then you can contact them and arrange a fruit swap. Great way to get people interested in growing their own specialised fruit and broadening our horizons.

eg how often do you see guavas in a fruit shop or black sapotes. But plenty of adventurous Australians have them in their backyards.

What do you think?

I agree, its a great idea. Unfortunately, I cant partake in a swap with you Lynne, as I am in Perth, but maybe some of the WA people might be interested too.

Having a webpage of its own is a great idea and sms capabilities are even better.
Some other advantages I can see with the trade/swap are:
-it’s one sure way of answering the often asked question ‘will it grow and fruit here?’
-it offers one of the few opportunities to test the fruit first before spending years growing it

Just a couple of suggestions though:
-For security reasons, I’m not sure that everyone will be comfortable publishing their exact address – I suspect some people might be put off from participating if they have to state their address. I think a stating a suburb may give people a good indication and then it’s up to individuals to get in touch with one another via email or phone and give their address to people they feel comfortable with.

-It’d be good if people can buy as well as swap. New growers may not have fruits to swap at this stage. Also due to different ripening times, it may not be possible to swap fruit for fruit at a certain point in time. (If they do it on a small scale, it would just be a hobby and even though people may be selling their fruits, there shouldn’t be any tax issues. Anyone in doubt can check with the tax office).


These are just my suggestions. What do you and other interest people think?

Lynne,

This is a great idea. I don't think that there is any need to make things too complex. As for giving out addresses, in the past I bred rare and valuable reptiles where this was a problem. I don't think anyone will steal any of my fruit trees :-)

With regards to the time differences most fruit and vegetable hobbyists end up with a glut of produce that they are happy to give away with the possibility of the favour being returned.

The biggest advantage of your idea is the possibility to taste fruits that cannot be purchased in shops encouraging people to purchase more fruit trees. Example I would grow babaco, black sapotes and chilean guavas if I knew I liked the taste.

Well done.

Lynne, We could make it so when you enter your address you have to put in an exact address but that no one could see your exact address on the website if you so wished. I would need the exact address so that I can do the longitude latitude calculations so that I can notify people within a certain distance of you that you have some rare fruit ready using Google map tools.

Leona, But you could swap with people in Perth and there seems to be a lot of you rare fruit growers over there.

Brendan
Exactly right. Even grafted fruit trees can take 3 years to produce. It is always good to taste what it is you are investing in first.

P.S The Babaco doesn't taste anything like a paw paw. It is nick named champagne fruit because it is has that sour taste. When you eat the first one you will scrunch up your face but after that you realise far out that is actually very nice and you will be hooked.

Black Sapote or chocolate pudding fruit is a cross between a persimmon and chocolate. If you have some luck with pollination you can make it so there are no seeds. The big ones are a meal in themselves and the taste is brilliant. There are some tricks to make them taste even more like chocolate by mixing coconut for example or eating them with ice cream for the milky flavour of chocolate.

I haven't had a guava yet ):

I was wondering how the sms would work (I thought maybe using postcodes but your method is more precise). As long as there is the option to not reveal the address publicly, I think people should be fine with that. The way I see it, in order for this swapping arrangement to be effective, you'd want as many people to sign up as possible. To do that, the risk would need to be as low as possible. I suspect if people perceive for there to be risks (whether it's real or not), you may not hear from them. Incidently, there was actually a gentleman at Louis'open garden who has (or had) some of the rare fruit trees asked about on this forum (on a very limited scale though - not a competitor to Daleys). I asked him if I could state his phone number on this forum so enquiries can be made with him direct but he declined.

Yeah postcodes are not that good for calculating distance and I understand how people don't like giving info out over the net.

Here is me thinking out aloud feel free to have a say on any point.

First thing is that someone would need to set themselves up with an email alert.

To make this as simple as possible I reckon you should just choose the distance you are willing to travel. So you would have to enter your info like this:

My Address
Keep Private
Distance for Email Alert:
30km 100km ALL

Now let's say you had set up your alert to be 30km and someone 15km away from you has a crop of Sharpblue Blueberries they are willing to swap you would get an email like this:
===
Dear Lynne,
Fred Flinstone has 60kg of Sharpblue Blueberries asking $3 per kg or a suitable swap. He is 7.5km from your address.

[Picture of ridiculously huge blueberry crop]

Link to View More Details Online

====
I think it would be great if people could upload a picture of the fruit they had to swap but i know a lot of people will find this a bit of a hassle.

Pictures really do speak when you are swapping fruit so perhaps we could work out a way to have default images.

Here is an idea of what you would see on the Main Page:

I was thinking half the page a google map and the other half a summary of the latest entries. As you navigate through the map you can click on a marker which pops up with details about the fruit they are willing to swap. You could then click it to see all the information they have entered and then you could ask and exchange comments.

If you were willing to visit them to do the swap or buy or even in a perfect world taste for free their huge bounty then you could arrange to visit.

This is the tricky part arranging a time. I guess you could private message them from here. Or you could contact them by phone/mobile if they were willing to give out these details. If it was a simply money exchange for fruit you could leave the money in a designated place if no-one was home they could secretly arrange a way to do this. Like the good old days when you left money outside for the milkman :)

SMS is a bit tricky because it costs money (about 10cents) in Australia Overseas it is often free. What type of alerts would you like sent by SMS?

Suggestions?

Your ideas are great and eventually if a lot of people sign up, then you'd need system along the lines of what you're thinking to organise things. But as it's a new concept, how about taking it one step at a time -don't change too much in one go - see if people are interested in the idea first, using pretty much the same format as this site that we're all used to. If SMS costs, I think if there's to be notification eventually, email is just as good. But even without this, I for one would be logging onto this site more often if there's a possibility of fruit being offered for sale. So that you don't have to spend too much time on it just right now (until it becomes more popular), how about we just list the suburb and interested parties can arrange to get in touch with oneanother. (BTW when we do get down to calculation distance, can there be an option for 10kms - Victoria is very small compared to Queensland and 30kms is a long way to travel). Oh and can you please give me Fred Flinstone's address - at that price, I'm taking the whole 60kgs!

Hi Lynee.

As you requested I put together a simple rare fruit webpage found here:

http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/swap/

You are right in regards to time I am working on another big project at the moment.

To do this idea well and get it popular I do think it needs a fair bit of time spent on it.

I would like to give people the ability to enter all the fruit trees they are growing in their backyard. They could upload pictures of these trees and commentary and when they fruit with the click of a button all the people in their local area can get notified that they are willing to swap or sell the fruit from that fruit tree.

When growing fruit trees the number one thing you want to know is how well it will grow in your climate so if you can search on a map and click on someone a few blocks away (depending on their privacy settings of course) you can effectively view pictures of their fruit trees and even discourse on their successes and failures and when the time is right you may even get invited round to taste their harvest.

Yes longer term, it would be excellent to link up with and get updates of the progress of fruits grown by other people in the neighbourhood. I have entered details of the prickly pears i currently have in the swap site you set up. Julie, Juanita, Brendan (or any other local fruit grower who may be interested) - if you're going to be in the Mt Waverley area in the next week or so and would like some prickly pears, send me an email and I'll get in touch with you. They may not be there for much longer as they drop easily. Leona, next time you come to Melb, let me know and I'll see what fruits I may have then.

Hi Ajay,
What a small world as im from hoppers too... Im not sure whether it's a good idea to dig up suckers in this cold frosty weather @ the moment? altho i have another 2 young suckers in the pot still attach to their mom (main p.stem), maybe this one can be divided?
I already have 1 pot of moringa 12inches tall & 1 indian guava in ground about 1 metre tall...I don't mind custard apple (sweet sop, atemoya or cherimoya)

Hi Juanita,
Yes, it is indeed a small world. I think it would be wiser to wait until the ground is warmer (perhaps around october?) until we split the young suckers from the momma plant. In the mean time, seeing that you live so close by, would you like to come over to see my collection? We can arrange a mutual time if you'd like.
I dont have any of my plants in the ground - too scared.
As far as custard apple goes, I only have one seedling, am trying to grow more though..
Take care.

Hi I am in if that's ok...I have about 80 usual and rare fruit trees and herbs and spices...many of which I try year after year. Now the garden has a bit more shelter things are taking off..
Along with growing from seed and cuttings..nutritech have a keen propagation system called "The Rooterpot™
Rooter & Stem Nursery Hydro-Capillary for obtaining model trees and shrubs within the season. The articulated mini-greenhouse that produces specimens with outstanding stem and root development by the old system of laying, now technically improved! " quote from website...Also I am interested in budding and grafting, which may be a fantastic way we can swap more material amongst us...particularly if the plant has survived our winters..
So I have custards, cherimoya, guavas, bananas, henna, curry leaf, mountain paw paw, babaco, avocados everywhere, cinnamon, cloves, kava, pipers, nearly every citrus, ice cream bean, brugmansias, all sorts clumping and edible bamboos, macadamia, candlenut etc...on and on...yes I am an addict

cheers love to hear from anyone

Your collection of fruiting trees is amazing. I have a fruit salad orchard of about 100 Trees and am currently looking to increase the collection with things that are more exotic. I also would be interested to hear of any nursuries that sell this type of thing in Melbourne.

Hi back Roger and Ron, first thing I did was contact Daleys...they have really great trees, and apart from the first winter they have been great....I started palnting 3 seasons ago about this time of year after six months of backbreaking clearing and refurbishing the soil we have here..(hydrophobic grey sand). Lost quite a few things like paw paws and cinnamon in the first winter...but I mad enough to keep trying, although I try to do my main planting in spring..At Louis Glowinskis last open garden, and he was saying it would be his last..there was a grower from Glenlyon.. Adrian from Useful Plants I have his number but I am not sure whether to put it on the site I will call him first...I got sugar cane from them, and they had coffee and many others as well.
Diggers also has some unusual fruit as do Perrys from SA, All Rare Herbs has lots of stuff but they are small, and lastly Bunnings occasionally has really interesting stuff like bananas BUT only buy grafted trees and bunnings generally has only seedlings, at the moment they have macadamia and mangoes both seedlings so don't get them....Morrisons fruit tree nursery in Doncaster w always has interesting plants and I'm sure they would get anything you want to try in as an order, Dicksonia rare plants at Macedon and Yamina rare plants in the Dandenongs have more cold hardy unusual stuff....and I'm always on the lookout for anywhere else..so if anyone has their favorite supplier...I am going to prune some branches off my Fuerte and Hass avocados and need to know when to do this so I can use them as grafts or give them away for others to graft onto those seedings we all have in the garden......cheers

Your collection is awesome! I'm amazed at how you can manage to fit all those fruit trees into a suburban garden. Thank you for the comprehensive listing of nurseries too - I'll check a couple of them out this weekend. Can you please tell me if the ice cream beans have fruited yet? I'm about to inherit one and would like to do all that I can to give it a good home. Lynne

lynne no beans yet but at least 1 tree is 3 metres this year and looking fine...not as quick as I expected for this type of tree but they are all in quite dry spots...on the other hand some things have grown 2 metres in a single year..like the avocadoes...just enormous and so I will start budding these guys soon....I do foliar feed every rain (after) which in Melbourne has been infrequent..
I use seaweed to make them stronger and fulvic acid and microbes with the npk, with all sorts of vitamins etc...mostly from Nutritech again and seasol and Bass laboratories...we have sandy dry soil and all this foliar feeding really makes a difference. The hardest thing I am trying to grow is a clove tree.....see how it goes this year..

Marg thanks for your detailed reply regarding fertilisers. I don't know what some of them are at the moment (only started gardening last year) but will look into them. I might try asking if anyone in the forum in Melb has had ice cream beans fruit. Your great success with avocado is just the impetus we needed to get one.

definitely get an avocado...just protect it from the evil ring tail (ringbark) possums!!!!!
and the kava came from ALL RARE HERBS too they have a massive list I keep it in a big pot in a bunnings poly hut next to my gas heater outside which blows steam all the time the clove, cinnamon and a couple of other little things are there as well...it never gets below 12 degrees and once everything is in the ground in spring they will be fine and protected...even so a little bit of shelter over winter seems pretty easy.
I am in Camberwell and quite sheltered...and winter has only just hit so I may have bad news as the cold progresses....

It sounds like you only use a little bit and I have some to spare. We're in Mt Waverley so can easily be passed onto to you cclynne@gmail.com

Hi All
I so agree with Kirsty about getting together every so often
Being a member of the SA rare fruit society is just so painful as they have some wonderful meetings, with budwood and swap and sell tables.... I have often wondered about trying to organise a Melbourne branch.
I guess to begin all we have to do is work out a place and date, all show up with spare things we have or at least a list of what we could propagate.
We should make sure this goes into the Melbourne trop fruit forum as well

cheers Marg

Hi Shalvin,

As discussed yesterday, I have Tej Pathi (Murraya Koenigii). I would have been interested in SYZYGIUM CUMINI (the purple coloured Jumblum) though .... ;).
Here is the full list: I'm interested in Cocao , cashew-nut, jambolan, Indian Jujube and Starberry.

I'd be interested in sharing knowledge about fruit growing too - it's often really hard to know what will survive and how to do things. Swapping cuttings/seedlings etc would be great too. So yes - a Melbourne backyard fruit grower's group would be excellent.

Esther yes it is. I eat them fresh - they're not as sweet as some of the red plums. But a couple of people have stewed the frozen ones and report that they like them. The tree is over 2 metres high and is in the ground so needs to be dug out. So, would need a van or trailer to transport.

Hi Juanita,

I have only one moringa left and its on the edge.... :(
I have planted more seeds though, but how many will actually sprout is anyones guess as they are over 2 years old.

If I get any extra, I'll be sure to post on this website.

On the bright side, I do have extra Guava (Indian) that I can spare.

Hi fellow rare fruit growers!

Bulleen Art & Garden Nursery in Manningham Rd Bulleen 9850 5155 has a very good range of interesting edibles, I have sourced many of my collection through them.
Also Ceres, Daleys, Diggers, and some from the last Louis open day...

I have a spare yellow Cherry Guava to swap. I am looking for a Ju-jube. (I think, that is I may have run out of room!)
Also does anyone know whether Wampi can take hot and cold winds and full afternoon sun in Melbourne?
I currently have my newly planted one in semi-shade, but am thinking of swapping it over with my new not-happy Persimmon Fuyu, which I thought would be sun-tolerant and just wasn't. Is it just the variety? I have seen many Persimmons around my area in full sun quite happy. Maybe just because it's so new...
Have just read all this section of the forum, wow, didn't know there were so many others into this too!
I am now making part of my living out of teaching gardening classes in my garden, but was going to suggest that if other Melbournites wanted to have a swap-meet at each other's gardens, I am happy to offer mine as one? It would be great to see others too. I know how much I enjoyed Louis's garden...It was great to be able to see how some of the things I am planting are going to look in the future.

Hi Jujube,

Thanks a lot for your offer, but I need a few kilos of cumquat. Because I want to make some cumquat juice. :)
However, in the future, if your cumquat trees has a lot of fruits that you don't need them, can I buy them from you? Because I haven't seen any market selling cumquat fruits. I'm located in Box Hill North. So, if anyone wants to give away or sell their cumquat fruits please let me know.
*It doesn't have to be ripe, the green cumquat is fine!

My email address is meiping_lim86@yahoo.com

Thanks a lot!

You will actually need prickly pear cactus pads and then they easily root in the soil within a couple weeks of warm weather and watering.

On ebay's US site there are sellers. I'd just make sure they are for the red fruit. If the pad is small enough it should fit in a little envelope and not be confiscated. Otherwise if you have any friends that go to Italy, they are plentiful and easy to sneak back.

Violet Cactus says...
Larms and Am, this picture taken in the 1920s will tell you why Australians don't like prickly pear.

In Queensland, an area larger than England was being choked by this plant before they found a way of eradicating it, however prickly pear infestation is still a problem and always will be, especially in the northern states.

Checkout this amazing video.

http://aso.gov.au/titles/newsreels/australasian-gazette-prickly/clip1/

And this 'history of the prickly pear'
http://www.northwestweeds.nsw.gov.au/prickly_pear_history.htm

All of the states in Australia have different laws regarding Opuntia. For example In Victoria you can legally grow Opuntia ficus-indica but not sell them, nor may you import them from overseas.

In Western Australia they are very much frowned upon and some people have had plants confiscated from their gardens.

Violet Cactus says...
More information:

Prickly pear (Opuntia species) are declared noxious in class 4 throughout the Southern Tablelands and South East Region (must be controlled in accordance with a local management plan).

Because prickly pear species are listed in a notifiable class (1, 2 or 5) anywhere in NSW, the species cannot be propagated or sold anywhere in the state (with the exception of Indian fig (Opuntia ficus-indica).

In Victoria too, you are allowed to grow Opuntia ficus-indica.
Luckily ficus-indica is the best one for fruit!

So nobody needs to sneak cactus pads into the country. Besides, if people illegally sneak in plants to Australia they may be carrying diseases or insects we don't have in this country.

That's how the European wasp first appeared in Australia a few years ago.

It's better for all gardeners if we Australians don't get more pests and diseases from overseas.

Lots of people here in Melbourne grow Indian Fig. You can see huge plants towering over their garden fences.

I saw one for sale here - http://www.oztion.com.au/buy/auction.aspx?itemid=8901663

Hi, i'm interested in your moringa oleifera plant, if you can please let me know what you would concider swapping it with?
I have indian fig plant, which in the oppinion of many who have tried it, said that it's the sweetest they have ever tried. I also have very good brown fig tree and a pommigranite tree that produces huge fruit like size of babies head.
Would love to hear from you soon, and if you want, i will get pics of the plants.

I'm just starting out, planning a tiny orchard in pots (I live in a flat) I would love to swap but I don't have anything, but I am a massage therapist and would be willing to swap some massage work for fruit trees.

I do mobile work so I can come over to pick up plants and give you a massage all at the same time. Hopefully a some of you will be interested.

You can buy Henna seed, try ebay, I am stratifying some now. If it gets going there will be at least one source in WA. But dont hold your breath growing from seed is always tricky ricky.

Re: Henna in WA
Try julie firth.he has plants from Palestine years ago. might still have them
Ive collected seed from bushes in Brisbane and cairns, it was pretty easy to germinate
dont have anay atm.

re: Opuntia
The risk up northe here seems overated now. Cactoblastis did a great job. Opuntia are still present but not that threat, actually a useful part of biodiversity now that its moderated.

the new risk is actually in the south where its too cold for permanent cactoblastis colonies. This is why Opuntia is getting away in the flinders ranges
http://www.australian-aridlands-botanic-garden.org/friends/news/04-edmunds.htm
however you should take the assertions with a grain of salt. The flinders ranges is already totally trashed by grazing, foxes and rabbits. Its not a 'wilderness' , its a wasteland! ecologically opuntia may do a great service by feeding and sheltering animals and soil, just like the much maligned lantana does in the subtropics.

and to jairodrio
please email me
reville1@gmail.com
i can see whats on that list that i can legally import. Maybe i can help you too with some autralian and asian specialities.

re julie and the henna
http://www.permaculturenursery.com.au/

I see many Indian and SE asian people pop on the board looking for familiar herbs and spices
this is my special thing

I have to resecure my source but ill get plenty curry planst going
I also have
-Pandan
-Tulsi ( the real one, some southern seedsellers sell a false one, not by malice just ignorance)
-Agathi seed (ripening soon)
-neem seed (in season)
-Noni/indian mulberry
-Daruka
-Dringo (asian strain)
-Moringa (short pod form)
- i have a source for the long pod form but i have to buy seed by the kilogram!!!
-Cabe jawa
-Tamarind
- I know where Bael tree is. It can be grafted to citrus rootsock but i must learn how or take cuttings. I will watch it for fruits.
-Betel nut
- I have Daun daluman/grass jelly plant but it must grow via seed not cuttings so i have to wait
-can access east indian lemon grass
-chaa plu / La lot
and much more! i have a long list and i am actively finding these things

I am still hunting seed or plants of
-Yanang
-Cha om
-asam gelugor
-Daun salam
-Szechuan pepper
-Fiji Kava
-Betel leaf pepper
-

some i have sources for but a second source would be welcome.
I always prefer a swap over $, but $ can suffice!

I don't think customs would look very favorably at that. I've never been able to find the legit tuna Opuntia especially red tuna http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Prickly_pears.jpg that the central Mexicans eat but I have collected some are little bit similar. Or does someone make jam from the common species in Australia that went wild? I wouldn't have thought so ?. The one they eat in Mexico is a really high quality fruit eaten fresh even, much better than dragon fruit or anything like that

Brad I don't know which city you're in but in Melbourne all you need to do is drive around some of the older inner city suburbs which have a substantial European migrant population and there's sure to be some prickly pears hanging over the odd laneway - my Italian neighbours used to give me some every year after they were soaked in a bucket of water for 24 hours to remove the spines. They're great eaten fresh too.

the land around train tracks usually has a lot of figs and prickly pears too. there are plenty of them in bulleen also.

If you want to grow them just get a few leaves and plant them in the ground. they prefer softish soil but other than that they really dont need anything.

Regards

Hi Ajay, I have a very small neem tree in a pot that has survived the winter ok but to be honest I think it will always need more coddling than I am prepared to give it. You can have it if you want. I'm coming down there soon and can bring it with me and you can pick it up.

Glory and prabh, tulsi/holy basil seeds are available from Eden Seeds. As this is an annual it would be much cheaper to grow from seed and have several rather than buy a plant.

Eden have several places that sell seed in WA, so I guess it's the same for other states. You can probably find out online.

Just had to pop in...I'm so excited (I know it's probably not exciting to anyone else but I'm quite stoked!). My African Pride custard apple is setting flowers. And it lives outside in a pot at the moment. And I'm pretty sure one of my black sapotes is *just* starting to set flowers? Maybe? (will have to keep an eye on it). I have no idea if anything will happen (& I won't let them fruit this year if I do manage to get anything because the trees are so young) but I'm kind of waiting with baited breath.

Given the rate most of my 'tropical' trees that aren't supposed to like chilly Melbourne are doing (even in the relatively coldish weather we've been having lately), I guess something must be agreeable to them. Will keep you posted.

Hey epiphany,

Have you tried hand pollinating Annona as yet? It's good fun. You can always knock the fruit off when you see you've been successful. The female flowers also have a beautiful aroma.

Let me know if you want more details.

Hi Lynne, this might sound strange to some of you, but try Bunnings. ... Today I was looking for fruit trees in Bunnings,& I came across something I had never seen before. It was a 'Chilean Guava.' ... i have seen the other main ones,but this was new to me. By the way,the Bunnings store I'm referring to is the one here in Mildura. Since they only have a very small Garden selection compared to other stores, I am sure you will find something in one of them. The Frankston Bunnings is pretty good.

Hi Lynne,, A better place to find what you want to buy, is Firstly at 'Gardenworld'or Collectors Corner'on Springvale Rd.,Keysborough.

Violet Cactus,,, Where did you get the idea that Australians don't like Prickly Pears? .. Any Australian who has tried them,just instantly loves them! ... But, Some people do make the mistake,of trying to bite straight into them!! This is a fruit that really HAS To be eaten With a Knife & a Fork!.. (unless one enjoys severe pain.)

Anonymous,,, The Prickly Pear WAS classed as a 'noxious weed', but that was many,many years ago. These days,there are some controls on it,(& as I don't know exactly what,I'm not going to embarress myself by trying to say what.) .... Anyway Anonymous,, the Point is that these days if you want to grow Prickly Pear in your front garden,no one can stop you.(various states may differ in this.) You might get into trouble, if it stated invading your neighbours' garden though. ... Does this answer your query? I hope so.

Hi, I think your swapping thing is a fabulous idea....I dont know if you would call them rare but I have feijoa trees and the fruit are beautiful. I give them away in bags at work and on my nature strip as I have had so many in the past...they even fight over them at the supermarket. They are usually ripe about Feb - Mar so I will be happy to swap or give them to people if they are interested. I have tried to propogate them but have been unsuccessful so if anyone has any ideas I could grow them in pots to swap also:)

I would like to get some of the Indian Figs to plant on my farm. If anyone can help with that it would be fantastic. We wouldn't be able to swap but we would be able to pay for anyone who could supply us with the leaves (cladodes) of the Indian Fig (Opuntia ficus-indica). Here's hoping someone knows of some large plants where we can get plenty of material!

Oh, Sally, I would love some feijoas when they are ripe. I used to live in a rental with the best feijoa tree and have missed them so much since. We should have plenty of organically grown tomatoes (i know, not exactly rare fruit) here then to swap, if you are interested.

I'm guessing the larger fruit will be ripe around late feb. or march and the picking season will last for a month or so. For picking up, I'm on holidays for 3 more weeks so anytime during the week is fine :)

Tulsi is also known as holy basil. Eden seeds had it a while ago. Much cheaper to grow from seed than buy plants.

My experience was that it didn't grow quite as prolifically as normal basil, but it did OK.

Hello,

I am from Mexico and live in Melbourne since some months ago. Back in Mexico I use to drink a smoothie of grapefruit juice with fresh nopal (not cooked). Unfortunately, I just can't find any nopales in any store here in Melbourne. This is NOT any kind of nopal, it is what people call "young tender paddles/pads of edible cactus". Here I attached a picture of it.

Could you tell me where I can buy them please? Or if any of you are able to sell them to me?

Thanks for your help!

Lynne,
Do you still have/want to swap/sell/give the prickly pear (Indian Fig)?
I would loke a few pieces, can you please contact me by email?
Thanks, rony

Hi sternus what is the difference between a regular prickly pear and a Mexican?
By the way leaves are starting to yellow on the little kiwiberries, not long now.

Well, they're opuntias, but they're not all created equal. There are over 150 different types of opuntia, almost all of them are edible. I have the one that most commonly sold in Mexico for cooking (the paddles) though I have never used it for this task, I grow it for the tuna (fruit).

Thanks sternus 1, I have one Jason gave me, not sure where it came from but he said it was a good one. It hasn't fruited yet but I can send you a pad with the kiwi cuttings if you want.

Thanks Jantina but I'm keeping my collection at two--the mexican, and the luther Burbanks, which he developed for fruit quality. I'll pass on the issai if that's ok, I procured some from Diggers (well, somebody went out on a limb for me and procured them specifically). I'd appreciate some growing tips on the kiwiberry though, I have no idea what to do with them.
