This is my own variety I grew from seed. This plant is self pollinating and produces sweet pink fleshed fruit that have a flavour reminiscent of mulberries.

This is one of my favourite fruit and I have allowed Perth%u2019s largest fruit tree nursery to propagate cuttings so that others can enjoy this variety.

Mango - Calypso (Seedling) 8/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 228 days 12hrs

Comments: -

This mango is a Calypso seedling I planted in 2012. It has a very small and compact growth habit and is just over a meter tall at 7 years old. I transplanted it into a 130L pot thinking that it was root bound in its original 60L pot only to discover that it had a very small root system and was nowhere near filling its original pot. This probably explains its dwarf growth habit.

this is the only mango that currently grows in my yard that doesn%u2019t require any spraying of fungicides to control anthracnose. It seems to have a very high natural resistance to this disease. It has just started flowering in 2019 and has set many fruit. Hopefully they will hang on till maturity and taste at least as good as the original Calypso.

Fig - Purple Vigilante (Cutting) 8/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 228 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Purple Vigilante is very sweet fig that%u2019s full of flavour. It is a lighter shade of purple than Black Genoa and the inside is dark red instead of pink. The flavour is also superior to Black Genoa.

The tree produces well even though it is still young and requires little maintenance other than watering. I currently grow it in a 50cm pot.

Purple Vigilante figs are delicious and this variety is well worth growing if you can find it.

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 228 days 13hrs

Comments: -

Lamb Hass is a very productive & problem free tree. The fruit taste similar to Hass but are usually a little softer. The tree is quite compact for an avocado and I am growing mine in a 160L pot. This variety pollinates well on its own and is resistant to sunburn.

The tree is also much more upright compared to The spreading nature of a regular Hass tree.

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue (Cutting) 7/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits

Cherimoya - Seedling (Seedling) 7/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 228 days 15hrs

Comments: - This tree was originally the rootstock of a Paxton Prolific atemoya. The graft broke off during a storm so I let the rootstock continue growing to see what it%u2019s fruit would be like. The fruit are very sweet with good flavour but the flowers need hand pollination.

Comments: -

These Panache cuttings were given to me by fellow forum member Kim14. They are still small but are fruiting for the first time in 2019, one year after I rooted the cuttings.

Panache has very pretty veriegated branches and fruit. Hopefully they taste as good as they look!
