Surinam Cherry - Brazilian Cherry

Hello,

Does anyone know how long these little fellars take to fruit & flower in general ?

Anyone in Sydney have a fruiting tree?

(I don't think it will matter but I am unsure if it is red or purple variety).

Thank you so much my fellow fruit tree growers. mine is a few years 4+ & less than 30cm high but is quite healthy green and shooting up, for the past years it has been burning every summer heat wave & then picks up again with new growth in spring, it seems to have adapted to our sydney heat waves this year & has not burnt out this time around all new shoots growth no flowers :( (still too small I guess but age is descent? )

That's a very small tree for it's age. At 4 years it should be close to shoulder height in Sydney and flowering and fruiting. Mine's only six years old and has been fruiting for 3 of them and over 6 feet high. Actually up till now, the flowers and fruit numbers have been growing exponentially. There's now far more fruit being produced than one family can consume, not that it is a big prize-winner with the younger family members.

Thanks John, wow yeah it always seems happy healthy just slow according to others standards for me its been a steady pace.. I finally got to taste the red fruit this year end of 2017! that's around 7 years of waiting, it is a Red Seedling has all grown up still smallish though like shrub looking, I guess it might be the lack of sunlight it sort of gets morning sun briefly then its sort of shade/filtered light as its growing in between the fig tree on its left & the Loquat tree on its right and the fence blocking off all the afternoon sun. On the other hand I have the black variety growing in a pot grafted I brought early 2016 just had 1 large fruit off of it. Both very tart tasting, I think most of the unpleasantness is from the skin I tried some of the fruit without the skin & was mostly sweet, it was fully ripe & just lightly touched & it came off.
