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..137 days 7hrs

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)...256 days 2hrs
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.
