About My Edible Backyard


Why BRENDAN1 Love's Edible Plants

hi my name is brendan i live in a suburb in adelaide  where the city plain meets the adelaide foothills



my backyard seems to be well protected ( facing northish )



and is not affected by frost ( so far)



i'll just start this page now and add to it later



i have purchased many plants from daleys ( many experimental) and will try to give an account of how they have gone

Raspberry - Heritage

BRENDAN1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2934 days 5hrs

Comments: -

fresh raspberries never make it inside the house

this autumn fruiting variety has such a refreshing & long lasting flavour

can't compare home grown ( flavour burst ) with supermarket where the berries are large & good looking but dont hold their fantastic flavour all the way to market

Pollination: Self Pollination

naranjilla 5/10

BRENDAN1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2934 days 6hrs

Comments: -

needs regular water

keep out of direct sun in summer

after 2 years is starting to fruit  ( march 2010 ) likes 8 - 10 hours

 of light to set fruit form my reading

lush looking with large deep green  leaves with a purple tinge

as daleys suggest pollination is low

in november 2010  the fruit turns orange , rub the hairs off and the flavour is worth waiting for. unfortunatrely there isn't a lot of fruit  and the fruit are only slightly bigger than an inch across but delish
