What fruit trees will grow true to - Sorry, got off topic. The misshapen fruit of the seedling seems to indicate the seedling did not grow true to the parent, which has fruit of a balanced shape...2446 days 0hrs
What fruit trees will grow true to - I have a seedling avocado, kept in a pot for about two or three years, then planted out in 2003. It took about another 5 years before it set a huge crop of fruit. In 2009 it set another huge crop, but was obviously suffering from phytophthora. I started..2446 days 1hrs

Dwarf Lemonade (Grafted)

Rusticular's Edible Fruits
Update: 747 days 20hrs

Comments: - Slow growth at first, straggly, fruit turns to orange when ripe but can be eaten green skinned. Closer in flavour to orange than lemon when orange skinned. Straggly untidy tree, probably due to the dwarfing stock. Prone to some kind of brown rust which dessicates the skin, Fuit becomes dry.

Coralie says... [3633 days 22hrs ago]
Can you tell me what your cross pollinator is? Coralie
Rusticular says... [3632 days 2hrs ago]
Hi Coralie, I have Lilikoi, Red and also Yellow Panama. As I do not pollinate by hand, I can't really tell you, but I suspect you may be able to self pollinate it with a small camel hair brush.
Coralie says... [3631 days 0hrs ago]
Hi Again, Yes we have been hand pollinating - but it hasnt worked at all. keen to try lilikoi, so this just gives me an excuse.. Coralie
Rusticular says... [3629 days 19hrs ago]
I tried pollinating by hand from Lilikoi in teh second year of the Granadilla, but it didn't work. However I suspect the age and size of the Granadilla may play a part, I have three Granadilla planted in close proximity (ca. 2 metres).

Mango - Bowen Seedling (Seedling) 5/10

Comments: -

This tree is much too big for my garden, and needs constant cutting back.  May try to lop it or top work other varieties.

Fruit very small and hard. Supplied by Daley's, don't know if it was a seedling or cutting as I didn't look closely at the root system, but presume it to be a seedling. Fruit set last autumn is still on. Trying to grow seed on from fruit. In a heavy clay soil, succumbed to root rot.

Comments: - Have tried three plants in different locations. Planted on gradual slopes on north side, but heavy soil. Root system rotted away. Have a new plant (tissue cultured) in a pot. It produced a few fruit then rotted. Potting mix was mixed with perlite and bark for drainage. Took cuttings but those all rotted eventually.
