Peanut Butter Tree

Bit of a slow starter - our 5 year old tree has only just hit its straps. Pollination and fruit set can be tricky. Keep careful watch on the maturing fruits - sucking bugs and pecking birds love them as well. Flowers from Spring and through to Autumn and

Fun to grow and the fruit does taste like peanut butter. I suspect this species is chill sensitive as it becomes chlorotic in winter once the night temps are less than about 8C - followed by bright sunny days. It recovers perfectly fine in spring so I ...

I have over a dozen of these growing (in two different places in Perth). Bought six from Daleys in 2017 which are all between 120 and 200 cm tall in 100 L planter bags. All are currently flowering but only a few fruits have set. The plants which are gr...

Tends to lose leaves if not sheltered from wind or if cold.  Needs a decent amount of water.

Love this tree and the fruit. Can be pruned to a shortish shrub size with no ill effects. Interested to know how to get its seeds to sprout?

Peanut Butter Tree

Love this tree. Very pretty and can stand cold, windy, exposed sites. Unusual tasting fruit. Sweet but pasty. Takes a while to get used to but very yummy. Sweet,delicate and best eaten straight off the tree as soon as it turns red.

Planted 3 years ago on well drained slope and has been fruiting since December. Still flowering and fruiting in March with constant supply of ripe fruit. Note that flowers dropped last season without fruiting, but lots this season.

This is not a tip but a question. Does anyone know why a lot of flowerbuds fall off without opening? Hundreds of mine have dropped off and only now some flowers are opening and the fruits are starting to form.

Still in it's pot, and suffered from insect attact.  Probably snails, almost defoliated it, but it's on the way back.  There were flowers when I received it and I got a couple of fruit off it  before winter.  It needs to find a home in the ground b...

Peanut Butter Tree - Bunchosia

Easy to grow shrub / small tree. Likes good drainage and organic fertiliser. Plenty of water in the growing season. Flowers Spring through to Summer. Seeds / nuts are green at first, then colour up when ripe in late Summer. Tasty snack!
