The plan is to buy my block and by the time I do that I'd have gotten everything already. They say the best time to plant a tree is 10 years ago and the second best time is now.

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1710 days 3hrs

Comments: - Looks great out there in the background, Only had it since last year but doubled in size since then. Low maintenance, easy pleased treasure. Apparently out of the 3 varieties (and one other overlooked species which the purple edible fruit that resembles small plums grows straight from the branches and trunk and mine has the fruit hang from pendulous clusters ) this one has the best flavour I'm lead to belive. used for preserves and jams

Blueberry - Sharpblue 5/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1711 days 5hrs

Comments: - A year ago and have had a real bad run, didn't mater what I did it just kept dying back on the branches. After a major trim and planting 2 buddies in the same big pot for cross pollination as this will increase fruit production significantly, it's on the mend. Maybe they just needed some company in such large pot. seems to be thriving now. I have noticed the large spoon shape leaves can hold water and if they are left with wet foliage your going to have a problem. they are acid loving plants, I use azalea potting mix, azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark.

Pomegranate - Wonderful 8/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1713 days 11hrs

Comments: - Never had the chance to try the pomegranate fruit. I have had two new stems branches out and grow, now take over the other two original two stems. I have had no dramas with this one at all I just re-potted with a mix of potting mix, quincan rocks, a little cow/chook poo and a little peat it's happy as. Didn't really like the full sun, It wilted quick, so I got it in partial sun and it's being introduced to the harsh Cairns sun slowly. Easy plant so far to satisfy.

Blackberry - Thornless Chester 7/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1714 days 5hrs

Comments: - It seems to be growing fine as long as I make sure to not let it get waterlogged, Watch mould from things around it. I had it going up through a bamboo trellis that ended up growing some sort of black powdery mould, My blackberry then started going black where it was touching the mouldy bamboo. I have now moved it to a proper frame cut it back and it is now fine, Actually it's going crazy. No flowers yet and I don't know what it'll do up here in Cairns but I'll give it a go.

This was so slow to get started. Out of 10 seeds I only got 2 sprout and out of that I only had 1 survive. Seems to be pretty easy to keep alive now it has true leaves. Can't wait to compare it against my Arabica's for flavour and growing characteristics.

Olive - St Helena (Grafted)

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1714 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Now here is plant with a rich and interesting history. The original Helena Olive was planted in the late 1800%u2019s on St Helena Island, located off the coast of Brisbane in Moreton Bay. This island operated as a high security prison from 1867 to the 1920%u2019s, and is today a heritage National Park. The original olive made its way from Europe to the Island, via a magistrate, and has continued
to thrive in the testing Moreton Bay environment. This plant offer's exceptional fruit and award winning olive oil. The Helena Olive will fruit in the South East Queensland climate, which for an olive is impressive in itself. Suitable for in the garden or on the patio in a pot, the Helena Olive is a beautiful looking tree. Does not like wet feet.

Jaboticaba (Seedling) 8/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1714 days 8hrs

Comments: -

I had a bit of trouble with this one when I first got it, the leaves where going brown at the tips. After a bit of reading, people seem to say that the plant needs a lower ph and to mix in a bit of peat moss and water with rain water, this should help. I use peat moss, pine bark and volcanic rock in my mix and it works great now, plant is green healthy and no more tip burn.

Finger Lime 10/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1714 days 9hrs

Comments: - The finger lime I have is about 3 years old early 2011. I was told it was a Rainforest Pearl which is suppose to give a cylindrical shape green maybe a slight blush fruit with little crimson crimson coloured pearls of juicy lime flavour. The finger lime has been described as being a superior lime in culinary dishes by some chefs but in my opinion it has a very unique flavour and I need to experiment with them a bit more before I pass judgment. It was almost like the oils from the rind went through the lime flavour. I can't wait to see what I've got when it comes to fruiting

I only just got this plant and can't wait untill it shows it's first flower, Seems to be an easy plant to keep happy aslong as you remember to try to only watter with rain water otherwise it may show signs of tip burn from the ph beeing a bit high, I've used Quincan mixed in with my potting mix to help with drainage and mix a little pine bark and peat moss to help lower the ph, It seems to be working a treat with this one and my yellow one

Miracle Fruit (Seedling) 10/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1715 days 3hrs

Comments: -

This is a freaky plant, I love it. A miracle fruit for diabetics, after I tried one i had to have one straight away. The fruit basically blinds your sour taste buds making sour things taste sweet,you can eat a lemon or lime without screwing your face up it'll make them taste sweet. Affects only last about half an hour maybe up to two hours but half hour is more like it for mine. I have a three year old one that is flowering and fruiting constantly and  5 year olds and about 10 seedlings.The big one has really greened up since i gave it better drainage and some composted manure and pine bark.seems to like semmi shade and the soil well drained and a little on the acidic side

Pineapple - Smooth leaf (Cutting) 10/10

Russ3's Edible Fruits
Update: 1715 days 3hrs

Comments: -

This plant produces large juicy sweet fruit that is not as acidic as your regular pineapple. Approximately 18 months from pup to flower then a further 6 months to fruit, but well worth the wait. Fruit is green when ripe so you need to use you nose you can smell a ripe pineapple, if it stats to turn yellow your a day or two to late but that's no problem I think we even ate the core. One plant only produces one fruit but you get several pups emerge from the base and in between the leaves. The plant is hardy and does not require much attention at all if the leaves start to yellow or get a reddish tinge it's actually asking you for some food.
