Wanted osage orange - A wholesale nursery in Silvan sells Osage Orange: https://metrotrees.com.au/maclura-pomifera-wichita/ Supposed to grow to 20m. But I guess those who use it as a rootstock to graft che (Mandarin melonberry) get to enjoy a tree that dwarfs both species' ..86 days 23hrs
Pomegranate13 - They won't cross pollinate because they are genetically identical, hence the pollen on one tree's flowers is the same as the pollen from the other tree's flowers. The good news is that I think all pomegranate trees are highly self-fertile, meaning cross-..111 days 3hrs
Kiwiberry - Can definitely be grown, along with all other species of Actinidia. The main issue will be the need for a male vine. Any male kiwi will suffice, some have better bloom overlap than others...126 days 5hrs
No fruit from flavor supreme pluot - I was expecting my first crop on my Mariposa + Flavor Supreme double graft this year as the tree is now large enough. Sure enough half the tree (Mariposa) is loaded but not a single fruit on the FS. Anyone else in Sydney have this problem? I can't rememb..236 days 6hrs

Pomegranate staking - I would not only stake it, but re-align the tree back onto a straight vertical axis. You can maintain a pomegranate tree at 7 feet in any case...251 days 5hrs
Best month for planting seeds of kiwi - Keep in mind that kiwifruit seeds need stratification. Normally seeds would be planted in Autumn, so they get stratification. However, Yarraville is close to the water and probably not as cool during winter as needed. You can simulate stratification in th..251 days 5hrs

White sapote orchard in wa - I am sure that I once read a forum post mentioning a white sapote orchard with 20-something different varieties. From memory, it was located somewhere in Western Australia. If anyone can find that thread or knows more info, please respond. My dream is th..256 days 6hrs

Fruit tree which can grow in shade - Starfruit would probably work well. Also Asimina triloba, though it needs cross-pollination for fruit-set. Davidson plums would also work (tall and thin tree, acidic fruit)...370 days 0hrs
Eastern cape myrtle eugenia capensis syn zeyheri - That photo of unripe berries is taken from wikipedia and could be of a different (sub)species than what is growing in Australia. The taxonomy of African Eugenias was recently changed, and so Wikipedia's info may be out of data too. Part of the reason f..397 days 6hrs

Lucky temperate members - Linton, I don't like the way you are referring to bees as 'doing their job'. I think it's rather demeaning and connotes some kind of non-consensual human-animal relationship that is based on servitude and exploitation. Regarding fruit, I would say your..410 days 16hrs
