Kei Apple (Seedling) 6/10

Gamefowl1's Edible Fruits
Update: 92 days 21hrs

Comments: -

I find Kei Apple very attractive. White bark with glossy dark green leaves. The thorns are very large and I'd imagine could cause a lot of damage if you were to step on one or fall against the bush. 
The fruit have a mild, but sweet flavour. Notes of Apricot. They are smaller than Apricots, smooth, and yellow. The seeds easily detach from flesh when eaten. 

It took a reasonable amount of years before they fruited, however it is probably a bit crowded by our Soursop trees. By our luck, we managed to receive one male and one female.

Brazilian Cherry 6/10

Gamefowl1's Edible Fruits
Update: 92 days 21hrs

Comments: -

We use this as a hedge along our fenceline. The fruit are attractive, with a great flavour. Unfortunately it is too sour for my liking, but I have heard that there are sweeter varieties around. I think that maybe this would be agood in a jam. 

The leaves have a nice shine to them, with new growth in a nice red bronze colour. The leaves have a nice odour when crushed in your hands.

Governors Plum - seedling (Seedling) 4/10

Comments: - Quite an attractive bush, but can have very large thorns. I find the small fruit pleasant with a mild sweet flavour. Unfortunately this did not fruit for many years and STILL has very small amounts of fruit, despite there being three adjacent from one another, with beehives closeby.
