Customer Tips & Reviews Naranjilla
Years ago in the 80s I found some seeds to grow Narajillas. Since I was not confident to grow them, I asked a local nursery with a special set-up to try them for me they had no success. So this is a wonderful opportunity to purchase plants from Dayleyshey?
Bellbird Park, QLD, Australia
Unique plant, with purple spikey leaves. Has flowered, but hasn't fruited yet. I am looking forward to making some juice from its fruit when the time finally comes.
WEST FOOTSCRAY, VIC
Has taken a beating from multiple moves etc. It's still fairly happy though. I expect good growth once it gets some stability
CARINDALE, QLD, Australia
Overwatered or curl grubs.Nice decorative plant, easy to grow.Fruit tasted like the unripe picked kiwi fruit you get at supermarkets.
Growing Naranjilla in Sydney Lower North Shore, grows like a weed and sets fruit abundantly truly delicious and did not miss a beat despite wilting on our recent 46 Deg C Days

Bought this in August 2011in a 140mm pot , it was about 200mm high. Now (early Nov2011) it is about 900mm high & very attractive. In a pot in azalea mix, doing very well thanks to all the tips from Daleys customers.(shaded spot) I'll probably get anoth...
Bundaberg, Qld, Australia
Interesting and beautiful plant. Watch those prickles! Seems to be a spreading variety and it sends runners off in every direction. Only growns about 1.5M tall and then spreads out. Seems to fruit all year round. Fruit is golf ball size or slightly lar...
Mine was growing really well in Sydney but got smashed in the heat. not sure whether to try again. Any thoughts?
I planted one of these last year, It grew rapidly over the summer, but it has been savaged by the winter here in the Illawarra. I'm not sure it will survive.
Hastings, VIC, Australia
Grew fantastically in Summer, healthy and highly ornamental to about 1.5 m tall and wide, set a lot of fruitt but they were too late to ripen, and the plant did not survive the Winter. %uFFFDI guess Egg Plant and tomato do not survive Winter either. %u...

Got rid of it - Not a quality tasting fruit and painful to deal with
This is the most amazing fruit i have ever had. i am currently living in costa rica and my host family makes naranjilla juice for me and it is unlike any juice i have ever had in the states. simply delicious. i wonder what nutritional value it has as well
It seems to set fruit really well in autumn, but has a heat related depression of fruit set in summer here. Web info re frost is contradictory, i will test it out. They are very nutrient and water hungry o/wise do well in large pots.Use liquid feeds often
If you keep naranjilla juice for too long it will turn dark brown. It is also the most delicious juice ever
I would like to make an ice cream with naranjilla
