Seville orange - I was told that it could take up to 7 years to bear fruit Ė but if you graft it onto a more vigorous rootstock (rough lemon?), it should bear much sooner than that! http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/forum/seville-orange-fruiting/?PHPSESSID=e0b8069b70db8e40..807 days 19hrs

Panache fig tree - I think youíre right, the "VDB" I have is most likely a common figÖ I will just have to curb my impatience for now and wait until it becomes available on Daleys. I have a feeling it will be a while though, just had a look on their site and it seems t..932 days 21hrs

Hi! Congrats on growing the black goji! Would you by any chance be interested in selling clones/cuttings from it? I would be willing to make it nicely profitable for you. Please send me an email if you're interested at shrddwt@gmail.com
