1. Dwarf Coffee Trees (Catui) - The desire to achieve the perfect cup of coffee has given me a love for the coffee tree. I have 8 growing in pots and my older ones have beans on them. They are a lush evergreen tree and when they flower it is spectacular and the smell is overwhelming like a frangapani. It is amazing how such a small tree can produce so many beans even after 2 years. They are definitely a talking point for me.

2. Black Sapote or Chocolate Pudding Fruit - This fruit is a bit bigger then an orange but it is action packed. The ones I have eaten had no seeds and the insides are thick and creamy. The taste is splended and yes in my opinion there is definitely a chocolate pudding flavour especially if you mix it with coconut to give the milky flavour of chocolate. I now have 2 varieties that I am growing in pots the bernicker and the ricks late black sapotes.

3. Mango Tree - I am most proud of my mango tree that I am growing in a pot. Most people who see it can't believe that such a small tree can produce huge mangoes. I have the Glenn variety however most people like to grow the Dwarf Irwin Mango Tree in pots. The Glen has the best flavour though.

Guavas have become our favourite, we are eagerly awaiting our future crop to ripen and as soon as it does they will be going in the juicer with our organically grown oranges, aaaahhhh heavenly. Also, I have planted a feijoa which has doubled in size with all the rain we have had , I am looking forward to future crops of feijoas as well.
We have a magnificent lychee tree that last year gave us a bumper crop but unfortunately the birds and the possums beat us to them this season, rats, I'll get the bird netting up earlier next year.

Just three? How difficult that is to narrow down! Off the top of my head, I would say only because these ones are so easy to grow, yummy and grow well in pots:

1. Strawberry/cherry guava

2. Blueberry

3. Acerola

Jenny Bluefields says...
here's my 2 cents worth...
1st favourite - Capulin Cherry, a prolific producer of tiny tasty fruits that, because of their pine resin flavour, remind me of drinking Retsina!

2nd favourite - Like Paul's, Acerola Cherry. Its flavour and texture lies somewhere between an ordinary cherry and a sweet juicy red capsicum.

3rd favourite is the Rose Apple and I'm anxious for my overpruned tree to bounce back so I can remember why exactly!

I'd also like to pay homage to the exquisite scents of orange and lemon blossoms. (By the way, photo by Kath is of Chris and I on the highway into Kyogle under flood!)

Anna Lusso says...
I agree with you, i have been saying for years, that in coffs region rains very abundatly and there is plenty of surplus. Instead of disalinating or recycle water, why not collect water from this region and take it where is needed. I come from Canberra originally where is dry. many cities are screaming for more water in the dam. it requires a lot money to desalinate or recycle water, just as much as diverting water. where i would like to share our over abundance of water.

Granadilla (Passiflora Liguralis) from Colombia, crack in on your head, eat it with a spoon, Beautiful spoted orange rigid skin, inside it looks like snot, but it taste delicious.

Yellow Pitaya... delicious, but don't eat too much or you will need to go to the toilet...

Mamoncillo, also from Colombia, you can not find it here, it's like a lichee, but green outside, salmon color inside...

My top three would be
Tahitian Lime
Valencia Orange
Black Mulberry

I picked them for how productive they are in our garden and for scarcity of pest problems.
When we move around, my list changes depending on the locality and new things in the garden

My three favouite fruits (to eat) are, peach, mango and avocado.

I have an old variety of Hale Haven peach which is absolutely delicious when ripened on the tree, and not grown any more. I am hoping to propagate it to take with me when I move house.

Mangoes - the short but wonderful season is now over. Will be a while before I'm picking my own - the tree is just a baby.

Bananas - (okay I know technically it's a herb)can't go past the flavour of home grown bananas. Won't be long now before I'm eating my own (pictured).

And, of course, pinapples.

#1 Lychees, I grew up on them and their season is too short. I can't get enough of them and they are no where near as good in the shop as they are fresh off the tree. They grow well enough given water in my climate.
#2 The ever versatile Lemon. It is easy to grow,they last reasonably well I can make alot of different things with them.
#3 Rambutan another fruit I grew up on (in Season) I don't have a plant but would love one. Again one of the best fruits taste wise. I always want what i don't have ie: Ice Cream bean hint hint.

Oh this is so tough! I love:

1) Mango - especially sucking on the seed!

2) Black Sapote - who couldn't love a fruit that looked like chocolate moose on the inside - fantastic in fruit smoothies

3) Babaco - Such a beautiful fragrant smell and juicy flesh and we got so many huge fruits off our tiny tree, it was insane!

And soursop, cherimoya, lychee, oh and the bubblegum taste of jackfruit...

Hey aanji, look for these in the thai and indo cook books. These are the most probile places due the the abunance of the there. I find it hard to believe you would be able to make a jam from a ripe friut as it turns to a liquid when its ripe. I prefer to eat them slithly hard so as the serbert tingles down my throught. I have a tree in Indo but its classified as a chicken food by the locals. Anyway if you succeed, give me the recipe too. Im interested. Thanks

hey aanji, sorry my wife just told me she used to make it reguarlarily, I now told. You make it the same as you would stawberry. Only need jam setta, sugar and very ripe soursops to maintain that sweet but tangy flavour. Hope it works out. I have to wait to get back to get to taste this. Apparently, pine apple, star apple, star fruit, and even durians can be made the same way as jams. yummy. Do you know by know what I am asking my wife to make will we are overseas. good luck.

1. Feijoas....yummy. We had a fantastic dwarf, self fertile variety back home in NZ...it produced huge fruit every year with absolutely no attention. Beautiful fresh or in a crumble. We're planting several feijoas in our new garden - love the taste & the fruit seem to be very difficult, if not impossible, to purchase here.

2. Tamarillos. Another favorite from NZ that are stupidly expensive over here. Lovely fresh, cut in half with a sprinkle of sugar. Yuuuuumy!

3. A tie between rhubarb & Blackboy peaches. Rhubarb is just a lovely staple to have int he garden. Easy to grow & yummy to eat. Especially cold, stewed rhubarb on your breakfast cereal. Yummy. I was astounded when I bought some in the supermarket & the girl on the checkout had no idea what it was...had never seen or tasted any! As for blackboy peaches - an oldie but a goodie. I have no idea if you can get them here - I haven't seen them for sale but I'd love to get one if I could. They make the yummiest desserts! My grandmother used to bottle them for us...so yum.

1. Passionfruit, passionfruit and more passionfruit!
2. A well grown feijoa with lotsa pulp.
3. Cherry guavas (red n yellow)

This was hard cos' i also adore (home grown ) peaches n nectarines and my Wortly Hall black muscat grape, mangoes etc. But the 3 above are always pretty good regardless of their heritage and I don't need 'nasty' chemicals.

Only 3 is really tough, so I asked myself, if I could only have 3 trees/plants what would I have...

Mango.. Just love the taste of a good tree ripe mango.

Lemon.. Useful for so many things, plus lemonade, lemon meringue pie, etc.

Bananas.. I always find myself snaking on these, one main advantage, is that they are low in acid, so no heartburn.

and Tomato, yeah I know thats 4, but since everyone uses it as a veggie instead of a fruit I am using that loop hole :), pasta sauce, tomato soup, ketchup, pizza...

I'll dig this up with 3 I can never decide between :0

1. Apricot
2. Mango
3. Lychee

Although the average Mango is better than the average Apricot I find the very best tree ripened Apricots beat out the best Mangos sligggghtly, but there's a massive difference between a good Apricot and a average variety so most of the time Mango is better. Lychees well they are unique in flavour pretty much and deserve to be just under that.

There's another 3 or 4 Like Cherry, Cherimoya, White Fig, Peaches, Raspberry, Red Tuna (cactus) etc that are at a similar level to the top three. Longan is the worst fruit I've ever tasted just for the record :) and I have tried it several times just to be sure

My top favourite fruits to eat fresh out of hand are -
1) NECTARINES (sun-ripened, just picked.)
2) RASPBERRIES (not a tree, so I'll have to add an extra fruit type!)
3) PASSIONFRUIT (not a tree either...)
4) MANGO
5) ORANGES

And I KNOW I would love Chocolate Pudding Fruit if I ever got the chance to taste one. Daleys, can you graft a cold-tolerant variety for Melbournians?

Thank you all - I have made a list of desires from your suggestions, but it's like being asked to name three of your favourite children... to be a good sport, I can name my first three fruit trees : Cumquat (for jam and nostalgia), lemon (for its usefulness) and Saville Orange (for the best marmalade).

They were first because, as a novice, I knew they would grow well in Sydney. Since them, I have grown and love many newcomers to my garden.

My newest love is the lycee which arrived just a couple of weeks ago. It is the tree of love for the Chinese and at first I was disappointed by its 'droopy' form, especially in the rain that we've had. Since then it has gained a grace and beauty that is taking my breath away.

No Rob, Favourite fruit trees and ones I can grow isn't the same :). I've tried Mango and Lychee and they live for years no problem, Winter isn't an issue but there's not enough heat (mostly at night) for them to grow at a decent speed. You could probably grow both in a backyard in Melbourne where you have the extra urban heat and maybe a wall also. But in a non modified Southern Victorian climate that's not in town it's not warm enough. Perth Adelaide Sydney and ?Mildura? < maybe is about the line of limit for easy growing of Mangos. South of those you need some extra heat from somewhere, either a city or some kind of greenhouse or rocks.. etc

Mangosteen might be the queen but durian is outa sight better than all else.Red Prawn,Gaan Yeow and Montong are good varieties but you need a well 'cultured' palate.Fai zee siu Lychees, Nam dok mai mangoes,the finest stonefruit and best mandarines and african yellow passionfruit deserve a jersey on the starting line up.
I reckon rambutan, all the sapotes,naranjillas(cumquat x green carambola),raspberries and cherries are entrenched in the reserves.

Hi mandy, forget the mangosteen unless you have a well heated glasshouse set up. Sapotes are a different matter, white sapotes will do very well in Melb and if I can grow a green sapote (albeit slowly) here, it should be much easier in Melb.
By the way I'm not in Melb, I'm in Mt Gambier which is near the coast close to the SA / Vic border.

My Green sapote (Pouteria viridis)is struggling here north of Sydney. Although we had one very cold night last winter which appeared to knock it around a bit. Coldest night in 63 years. Something like 0.5deg C. It still hasn't fully recovered.

Hi John, I read something from Thistlebrook farm at Toowoomba yesterday, where they state that they have a cool temperate climate with about 40 frosts a year. That's about 35 more frosts than what we get here, but my friend over the other side of Mt G. gets lots more, and another friend near the airport gets frosts right up to December.
This has made me have a think about just how much impacts on whether something will grow in a given situation.Temps, soil,light intensity,water, etc,etc.
We have lots of big trees here and I have gone out on frosty mornings to check where the micro climates are, and where there is no frost even on a frosty morning is where I plant my tender things.
It's quite probable that my green sapote will never fruit but then again maybe it will.
As for the Pouteria nitida, I have one in a pot outside that I thought my husband had killed but it resprouted, one in the ground that has made reasonable growth with small branches and one in the glasshouse that is booming.

I class frost as 0c but most people will call it any time ice forms on an insulated surface which can be quite a few degrees above freezing. Amazing how much the climate can change in a small area. The other night I measured the temps on one side of the hill I live under and it was 5c, up the slope of the hill was 6c. On top was 7c down the other side was 6c on the flat was 5c, then 4c and at my house near sea level was 3c. This was all in the space of a few kilometres. You might almost grow a mango on top of the hill, yet get damaged avocados at the bottom (huge difference). You could certainly grow very good bananas ontop.

P.S outer Melbourne was 12c and Port Fairy 11c at this same time

Herberton,Wondecla and Ravenshoe at around 900m officially had frost about 5 times so far this may/june but temps were 1-3c.Cairns had an insane 10.6,Cooktown 9 and people have dressed like polar explorers.Way different from the last few years.BOM warns of possible frost when is gets about 5 or less.

Speaking of microclimates in one district the minimum at green and low islands was 2o last night,cairns was a crazy 10,mareeba was 5 and wondecla was -2 with another evening of widespread frosts on the atherton tableland.It makes me think that pockets of seq and coastal nsw could have milder winters that allow many tropicals to do alright.

That should have been 20 and it almost never gets below 20 or 21 there. I can't really grow whites here but greens i'd have a shot at because they like it a bit warmer and canistels a bit more again I believe.
Because of the height and aspect of the mountains(to 1600m) and tableland and warm sea there is alot of variation of temps and rain in a small area.I can eat durian and rambutan in the morning,go to a chums at Ravenhoe and have apricots and nectarines at lunch and go to Mareeba and have figs and persimmons for afternoon tea.

Mareeba is a dustbowl and part of the Einaseigh uplands(only 400m) rather than than the fertile and higher atherton tablelands.Malanda and Yungaburra are 'developing' faster but not like Cairns and the dude ranches and few ha subdisions have almost stopped.Mareeba to kuranda is developing fast. The pubs are pretty well intact.
I tried in vain to follow your instructions and this computer has defied me.I am bustin' to show this uberguava to Peter and it will have to wait.

I've already pulled out the thermal shirts, more for the wind than the cold though :) I still have lots of passionfruit on too. I've got a pile 2 foot deep under my vines. Time to move the pedalai, duku, pometia, cupuassu and mocambo to the warm spot.

Nice plants BJ - don't they take 5oC or are they too young?
(ps - I can imagine heaps worse places I could be in the world right now!? And how lucky are we to have a climate that can grow mangoes but also some good stone fruit hey... :)

Yes, as much as I enjoy trying to push the limits of the so-called uber-tropicals, I'm more than happy to grow my flat peaches, despite their problems up here.

All of those trees are under 1m and are in pots. most are reputed to die if the temps ever drop below 10oC, but they've had 5-6 nights under that already and only the pometia seems to be suffering, and only the soft new growths. I have a very warm brick wall that absorbs 8hrs of sun and keeps warm through the night, so if the temps drop below 7oC I figure I might as well just move them to that spot for extra insurance...

Earlier in this column I noted my three choices from all the fruit I have ever tasted. From those I have never tried i have three wannabes. ACAI, Red bayberry, and Salak. I have almost got these and hope to get some nice land to grow them.

My main fruits are-red cherry guava,mango,lychee and custard apple, but then I love all fruits. In fact I could probably live on fruit. I am woundering if you have any red cherry guava trees available for sale and what price they are. Awaiting your reply. Bev
