Httpwwwrarefruitsaorgau - Thanks for that Phil. I'll join up and have a look. I'm a (newsletter only) member of the Fraser Coast Sub-Tropical Fruit Club Inc. Probably on the same footing as this SA organisation. I live too far away to participate in their get togethers. I on..3383 days 18hrs
Httpwwwrarefruitsaorgau - Hey Phil, Did you get much out of the online sections like: Library, grafting, articles etc?..3383 days 19hrs
Httpwwwrarefruitsaorgau - Is it worth joining the above organisation? It's only $20/yearly to get access. Just thought I'd ask first before joining up. Looks like there could be a lot of good info in the members only area...3384 days 11hrs
New kiwi berries - Yay, found some today at the Harris Farm fruit market at Erina (Gosford) They taste much nicer than they look. Definately worth growing. I'm going to plant some seeds and see what happens...3384 days 17hrs
This is a bit unusual fruits - Looks like the season has finished. I went to the local Harris Farm market (one of the companies listed on the Achacha web site) with a wiew of trying them out and getting a few seeds. None available till next season. I'll be keeping an eagle eye out f..3384 days 17hrs
Asimina tribolaamerican pawpaw temperate custard apple - So it looks like cold stratification for a month seems to work for Phil and up to 100 days won't do them any harm. I might go 1/2 way and refridge them for about 6 to 7 weeks should be safe. I have plenty, I'll do 6 in 6 weeks and 6 in 8 weeks and 3 in..3385 days 18hrs
Red dacca banana - Fair enough John I, I must have you confused with someone else. Nevermind, If you haven't got one by next spring, look me up and I'm sure I'll have some pups by then...3385 days 18hrs
Asimina tribolaamerican pawpaw temperate custard apple - Very happy. My 15 "selected wild" asimina tribola seeds arived this morning from the US. Nice and quick. Now, many questions if I may: do I pot them up into the deepest pot I can find like the 6 lit grow bags we buy fruit trees in? Do I put the grow ..3385 days 21hrs
Red dacca banana - Hi John, If you don't get any takers I'd love to swap you one of my "dwarf" Ded Daccas after winter, for one of your superdwarf Cavendishes.. ..3385 days 22hrs

Question for australia - So speedy, We didn't get any frost last year but we're marginal, 1/2 way between Sydney and Newcastle 10K's from the coastline. Do you think it wise to dig my Green Sapote up and grow it in a pot in the polytunnel? I have a two year old Soursop in ..3389 days 14hrs
Pink banana - You've got it speedy, Pink ornamental banana M.velutina. Those superdwarf's sound interesting. Might look them up...3389 days 16hrs
Asimina tribolaamerican pawpaw temperate custard apple - No probs Phil, I'll get them away on Mon. I've found them to fairly tough little plants, they just don't like the cold. I'll minimise the soil around the roots and probably send them in a padded post bag or something similar. I'll email you over the..3391 days 13hrs
Pink banana - The tall banana plant in the middle of this pic is a pink ornamental. The fruits are small but bright pink. Dont know if they are edible. The short banana plant in the background is a true dwarf Cavendish. They grow to a maximum of 2m high and throw very..3391 days 13hrs
Pink banana - Here's some pic's of my Dwarf red Dacccas. They have'nt been in the ground too long, about 6 months. They're not shaping up to be all that dwarf. The leaves are huuuge. ..3391 days 13hrs
