Is there anyone who grows this tree in Melbourne? I'd like to grow this but not sure if this is frost tolerant. Thanks

I grew seedlings in Victoria some years ago, they didnt survive over a mild winter in a plastic house.
Tried again in perlite/cocopeat propagation mix. They did a bit better, but still couldnt handle low temps.
If you are really keen, it may be ok as a large container plant You may need to give it heat over winter, or keep indoors.

Thanks jakfruit etiquette for your reply to my post. I don't expect this plant to fruit but at least to grow to a reasonable size and be tolerant to this chilling weather. Let's see how it goes. I'll keep it update. Thanks

Scott 10, it indeed is a lovely tree. I actually received this tree today and try to grow under a grow light indoors until the winter is over and then consider planting outdoors.

Hi,

I was wondering if you have any wood apple fruit available( dried fruit is okay too) or if you know where I can find it in Australia?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Regards,
Deepta

It might be available up in the tropics where I got the tree I posted above. But I haven't found any in Victoria.

Hi again Deepta, are you in Melbourne? just out of curiosity, what do you intend to do with this fruit? For planning or eating? Even though I haven't seen the fruit here in Melbourne, there are some shops who sell the puree and jams which are absolutely heaven. No other fruit that I know taste like it.
