Suitable fruit trees/vines

    1 responses

Hi all,

Im new to this forum so go easy on me :D

I have recently purchased a property at Crooble - which is about an hours drive North East of Moree NSW. Sort of between Moree and Goondiwindi.

The 8 acres has excellent rich black soil, lots of sun and there is good ground water on the block from the bore.

I am looking for advice on the most suitable fruit trees for my location. I would like to plant a variety of fruit as I am aiming for self suficiency.

To start with I am thinking grapes, figs, stone fruit, apples, citris. I guess that about covers all varieties anyway!

I am unsure if I will get enough frost for trees requiring chill. The prvious owner said they get about 12 frosts a year - but I cant confirm this.

The area is very big on growing wheat, chickpeas and cotton aparently. And it is in an area known as the Golden Triangle - which I think refers to the great growing conditions in the area.

Any advice on what to select would be very much apreciated.

Regards,
Hamish

All the varieties you mention should do ok. Daley's catalogue normally lists plants which have a low chill requirement, have seen some of their stone and pome fruit do well in Nth NSW/SE Qld.
