Taste Fruit before Growing

    3 responses

NigelK starts with ...
I am interested in growing some of the fruit trees that I have not eaten before. However I have not been able to find the fruit to try & make sure that we like them. Is there anywhere you could suggest. We live in Brisbane & are prepared to go for a drive if needed.

Examples are the Muscadine Grape- Noble, Jackfruit (ripe not green), Ice Cream Bean, Vitamin C Tree, Jaboticaba, Grumichama

If anyone has any suggestions it would be appreciated

Hi Nigel. Finding gardeners within driving distance of you who just happen to have ripe fruit on offer is perhaps a big ask though I know where you are coming from. Always disappointing to wait years for a tree to fruit only to find you don't like it.

Perhaps go to farmers markets where the locals might have some of these fruits on offer. You would have to be looking for them during actual fruiting time.

Ask others what they think of the fruit (I personally love Jaboticaba and remember liking Grumichama and Jackfruit when I have eaten them) though this can be subjective.

Try joining a gardening group like Brisbane Local Food where many gardeners have had experience growing and eating the fruits you are interested in.

All the best with your search. Sometimes you just have to put the tree in and hope for the best. Never heard anything good about the Ice Cream Bean myself, and it's a big tree. And who wouldn't like a Muscadine grape!
