Customer Tips & Reviews Pitomba
Grew slowly till put into a self watering pot then looks changed totally from a slow stragly shrub to dark green leaves that shoot all the time and also produced flowers and first fruit which was delicious, tasted like a very aromatic dried apricot.
Pitomba has fruited for the first time after planting 3 years ago. Now about 1.6 metres tall - fruit is small but very sweet to eat straight from tree. Birds love them too so I will have to net next crop.
CARLINGFORD, NSW, Australia
Slow growing with some initial dieback in winter. First reasonable crop after 8 years. Delicate aromatic flavour with hint of pineapple, soft fruit with single seed. Now producing fruit regularly.
Hastings, VIC, Australia
