Hi Mike,

Wonder if there is any chance of a UD hog plum seed. I live in Melbourne and try growing tropical fruits. Have done
well with the big guavas and Wax Jambu.

many thanks
Roger

Mike, seeds are starting to sprout now, and they're suprisingly fast - one day there's nothing there, and the next day there's an inch high seedling, no in-between. Thanks again.

Roger hang in there I just have to wait for a few to get ripe.

VF they are a bit like that.They will go slow again soon and then take off when 10cm high.They can fruit very quickly.

You're right there Mike. Mine is in it's third year with it's second crop hanging on over winter, just underripe. This year it flowered early (for here) so might get two crops, the over winter crop and a crop off the current flowers.

The "over winter" crop is starting to swell now, but I'm wondering if they are going to be representative of it's true edible qualities. No matter what the outcomer, at least I should get some viable seed, they appear to be popular. I still have no idea what to expect, I have never tasted or experienced one.

I'm so jealous John Mc because mine died. It was going really well but I went away and it (and a number of other things) died even though I hired a fellow to come and water and my friends/neighbours all said they will keep an eye:( Here's the last picture I have of it in March this year and when it first arrived.

Mary the ambarella train has not derailed entirely and only time has been lost.Let me know the casualties and most can be replaced with a few extra real stars.

The UD hog plum has larger and sweeter fruit than the standard dwarf.It is almost like there are 3 species.

Thanks Mike you are ever so generous but I think I have been punished for being too greedy so please don't worry about sending a replacement. I still have lot of plants that you gave me. It's partly John Mc's fault for saying he's only two hours north of Sydney so I used to think I can grow what he can grow :) Fact is he has superior knowledge and all mod cons to provide the best environment for his plants. The most important being LAND. lol

Here are but a few of your plants that are still growing strong and spreading :)

Some things that grew like weeds at your place are very temperamental here - as you can see (above) I had to wrap the sweet leaf in plastic over winter; it's the only one of several seedling that survived. Also the paddy field herb was under glass 'cause it hates the cold. It's one of my favourite herbs which is why it never gets a chance to get bigger lol

Hi Mike,
My UD Hog Plum is still ok, I think so. It's like a stick without any leaves now. I see the top is green so I hope the leaves will grow soon. Although the weather in Sydney is still cold in the evening, I move it outside to get the sunshine in the morning. There's no sign from the seed. The pepper vine buds are shooting now. It means the vine can stand cold weather.

John Mc says...
Mary, I still have drawbacks living where I am. The sheep next door broke through the fences two nights ago and totalled, almost destroyed my fav Secondo avo tree. Also cleaned up my fully in flower Jujube trees, 5 in total, I've been hand watering them since Early August under Lucy's instructions. Not to mention my Ballerina apple tree, in fruit for the first time in four years, that I have been hand pollinating because of lack of pollinators. That kind of experience knocks the shine off very quickly.

(recomposes self....

Three types Mike? I can't remember if you sent me the one in the pic above? It's attained 5ft in ~3 years. Would it be considered mid size (dwarf)? You also sent me a very small hog plum, now in a 4" pot, just scraping through winter, picking up nicely now. Maybe it's ud?

Must have been a wolf in sheep's clothing.The standard hog plum has large good quality fruit and the dwarf and small fruit of only mediocre quality.The UD hog plum has large/medium fruit of good quality.The groth forms of all 3 are different also.

Hi John,

Sorry to hear about the saga you had the other day with the sheep. As long as the grafting bit still there, new grow/flowers will appear again soon. These jujube trees can continue to flower from October up to April next year.

Talking about UD hog plum mine is flowering right now after 9 months from seed thank to the generosity of Mike.

That's very encouraging Jujube Lucy. I've been really worried about them. The sheep ate all the new growth back to the main stem on 5 trees, some you sent this year and some in pots from years previous. They have been performing extremely well, putting on heaps of growth and loaded in flowers thanks to your involvement. The tall one got away untouched(Si-h).

Hi John,

Keep on good work. You won't be disappointed. I broke the only young bud of my brand new jujube tree last year about the same time and the new branch grew back in no time.

Wow, fruiting so early from seed is exciting, and good to eat too! Whilst I am generally patient (sort of, anyway) waiting for fruit trees to bear, it's always nice when you have one that's a little more instant.

Hi Ive

Yes the triplets are going just great and healthy. Must be due to all the warm weather here. They never lost any leaves since they arrived and I transplanted them.

I have one of these, although it's a male tree and I only have one so I don't get fruit. I did grow fast and flowered after not too many years. It's a big tree now, you will have no problem growing these in Melbourne that's for sure, these things grow like a weed. Don't need fertiliser water or anything

They do look similar Jason! Never heard of kaffir plum before... Sounds interesting. Ambarella seems to be a better fruit for eating out of hand though.

Fruit365 - you will probably need to wait until the fruit are in season before you can get any seeds.

I don't expect there would be any of the dwarf fruit around in Melbourne until end of summer, but maybe earlier further north.

However there's plenty of Hog Plum fruit from the normal size trees in the shops at the moment but they are probably imported form Queensland. I doubt if they could be grown here or in Adelaide.

Hi Ive.

Yes the 3 plants have survived winter here outside but undercover. They didn't even lose many leaves and I thought they were supposed to be deciduous.

Now they are taking off again with the warmer weather. Very happy with them so far.

That's good to hear, hopefully will fruit for you.
Kept 4 for myself, rest given to family and friends.

Thanks again Mike.

Had one fruit like crazy before winter, lost all its leaves ,fruit was all that was left hanging over winter. Now back to full leaf. Others are starting to flower and set fruit now.

Even had one late arrival pop up over winter, was about to recycle the pot.
