Blackgold jakfruit - Hi Blackgold, Blackgold jackfruit trees are available in Perth, Tass1 trees sell them. It might be worth contacting them to see if they can send them interstate. Daleys might also be able to source budwood from them for grafting. I’ve also seen them ..3 days 3hrs

Heirloom fig varieties - Hi WazzaMort, I tried a Purple Vigilante fig today. I agree it is about 8/10, a very good fig well worth growing. I’ve attached a pic of a Black Genoa for comparison. I found Purple Vigilante to be superior to Black Genoa in every way except maybe pr..16 days 20hrs

Thai red lady papaya plant or seeds - Hi Keen gardener, I have Red Lady papayas, I purchased them from Bunnings here in Perth. They seem to need a fair bit of heat to colour up properly and I honestly think they are a bit over rated. My favourite papaya is an unknown orange variety th..42 days 4hrs
Lamb hass1 - Hi Asaber, Lamb Hass pollinates just fine on it’s own. If you plant it in the ground then give it at least 3 or 4 meters to spread. If you prefer to keep them small try growing it in a large pot (150L or bigger ) and prune annually. I’m growin..42 days 4hrs
Papaya2 - Hi Shabaz, The trick to growing good papayas is heaps of manure & compost, they are very hungry plants. Don’t over water them in winter as this will lead to root problems. Also keep an eye out for nematodes as they love papaya. I’m currently gr..52 days 18hrs
Panache fig tree - Hi fruitilicious1, That’s a nice looking tree. I’ve attached a pic of my Panache cuttings, as you can see they have pretty severe mosaic.I’m keeping them on my bathroom window sill so they don’t contaminate my healthy fig trees. The other ..66 days 20hrs
Avocado help - Hi Lozza2271, Potassium deficiency can cause leaf tip and margin burning is older leaves. I get a little of this from time to time and a bit of potassium sulfate helps clear it up. The tree may also have an underlying root problem so make sure the the ..74 days 6hrs
Dragon fruit30 - Hi Judith, The larger ants should be ok and may assist pollination but the small black ants are a problem as they farm aphids on the flowers, fruit and young stems. I use pyrethrum to get rid of them. You can buy it or make your own from pyrethrum dais..82 days 3hrs
Growing dwarf lamb hass near house - Hi RC, Lamb Hass will be happier and grow larger in the ground but it will also be fine in a very large pot.

Growing avocado trees in half wine barrels - Hi David01, I expect a large percentage of the fruit will drop, especially during our summer heatwaves but if only 10% make it to maturity I’ll be a happy man.

Fig - Purple Vigilante (Cutting) 8/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 14 days 23hrs

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: 62 days 14hrs

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.

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.
