leah g starts with ...
Hello,

We are a ten acre farm in Mullumbimby creek. We are interested to plant a fruit tree orchard here in the next few weeks.

Can anyone help advice me the best variety of avocado, pecan, macadamia, olive (oil and fruit) and black sapote.

Thank you ,

leah and family

Start out with as many different varietys of all the ones you want . I would not bother buying Black Sapotes , just grow your own from local seeds .

As well as the wonderful varieties you can get from Daleys, Forbidden Fruits in Mullumbimby has a great range at good prices.. open Monday to Friday and is at markets on weekends - Bangalow Market is a good place to find him.

Not my experience--- somewhat surly and his stuff tends to be inferior to Daleys.

Sorry lenn . Got over 30 plants in the last two years, a third from ff rest from daley's found them to be about equal. Like most things it depends on what part of the season. Chester was very patient and helpfull with my countless enquiries.

And I didn't mention his attitude or the quality of his plants, just the range he stocks and the competetive prices.... less of a carbon footprint if Leah shops in her own town as well.

Please don't plant olives, they are a terrible environmental problem.

"Olive is an invader of native vegetation, especially dry sclerophyll forest or woodland, and adjoining cleared,
ungrazed land.If uncontrolled it can alter the composition, decrease biodiversity and increase the fire hazard of
native vegetation. As it is very long-lived, such changes are permanent unless controlled."
