We have the pink variety in Sydney. It has grown to about 1 m and has already produced fruit. After winter it does drop some leaves, but gets new growth and so far seems to be doing OK. | Edward Henner - Carlingford, NSW 14-Oct-2006

Keep well watered & fed. Two varieties I know are growing very well in Fairfield East/Villawood. One of the varieties in particular has very large white fruit. I have marcotted my own from well established trees. Be mindful of extremes in temps. | Steven Lewis - Quakers Hill, NSW 28-Jan-2009
