Pollination of rockmelons - Why use a paintbrush? Just rip off a male flower and make that your 'paintbrush'. Rub that against a female flower (They have a small swollen primitive fruit behind them). Do this in the morning when the pollen is fresh...913 days 20hrs

Ice cream bean - There are plenty of inga that will fruit in a 100L pot. A friend has five different species, not sure on some of the IDs though. Inga vulpina and Inga congesta easily could, the latter grows to about 1m tall when mature. Edit: Stacey email me tommoz@li..968 days 24hrs
Best feijoas for pots in melbourne - I would get the Unique, it is smaller and so better suited to pot culture. It is also self-fertile and should set fruit by itself, although hand-pollinating will increase fruit set...997 days 17hrs
Apricot tree10 - It probably is still dormant because it hasn't received enough winter chill, which all stone fruit need. I don't think a Moorpark will ever fruit in Avoca Beach as it is too warm. You might have luck with a low-chill apricot seedling http://www.daleysfrui..1016 days 10hrs
Low chill kiwifruit male - I have the Forbidden Fruit male which is meant to be low chill...1074 days 23hrs
Starfruit trees - You could tell which ones the Sri Kembangan are by looking at the flowers. They flower when the plant is still very young, so you shouldn't have to wait long. They'll have a short style, but the flowers are very small so you'll need a keen eye or magnific..1111 days 22hrs
Tropical fruits for canberra - GG, I believe you can fruit a cherry tree in Lindfield. Get the Minnie Royal/Royal Lee double graft. Others have been pessimistic about its prospects but I am quite confident.....1115 days 20hrs

Tropical fruits for canberra - You might consider Cherry of the Rio Grande, Kwai Muk, White Sapote, Asimina Triloba, fig, cherimoya, Pitanga/Suriname Cherry, Mexican Guava, Luc's Mangosteen to be 'tropical fruits' because they are a bit exotic and the taste is comparable, although they..1117 days 23hrs
Cider apples1 - Check out Pete the Permie, he has hundreds of apple varieties. He lists 27 cider varieties for his scion wood list, but he probably offers more. He'd know which one is low chill, or maybe you can do more research. http://www.petethepermie.com/fruit/apple-..1121 days 20hrs
Bramleys seedling apple - Woodbridge Fruit Trees in Tasmania and Mt Telopea Nursery (Pete the Permie) in Victoria offer it and they mail order. ..1122 days 16hrs
