NQ grower starts with ...
HI I was wondering if anyone can help me work out if I should buy the following plants given i am located in Townsville. I am not sure if they will fruit. Based on chill hours it's touch and go for some so I am wondering if anyone has had any success in this region?

Mulberry
Angel peach (low chill)
Peachcott
Peacan (also can this be grown successfully in a pot?)

Many thanks for your help in advance

Hi NQ grower,
I have seen some black mulberry trees with fruits along Ross river bank from Bowen Bridge to Nathan Bridge. My neighbor bought a pecan tree for $10 from Fairfield Bunnings where they had some unsold stocks 4 months ago. It is a big tree and I was told that it is unsuitable to be grown in pot.

NQ Lucy is correct and dwarf and shahtoot mulberries grow fine in Townsville.Pecans will struggle even if they do alright on the tablelands.I don't reckon any stonefruit are worth it even low chill types like florda prince and tropic snow unless you are on top of Harvey Range.
