Grapefruit and bees - My apologies if this is a duplicate. Thanks Jakfruit, I found that Daley's offers Honneff's Surprise, so I have ordered one. I'm thinking I'll try a lime as well, but not yet decided. I did order a Star Ruby, but that may have been too ambitious...1150 days 15hrs
Grapefruit and bees - First question - has anyone in South West Victoria tried to grow grapefruit, and, if so, what variety? (Any details of your experiences welcome) Second question - can anyone give me an idea of how popular grapefruit is with bees? I know they like lemon..1153 days 16hrs

Grapefruit and bees - A White grapefruit would be better than red. The Wheeny is supposed to be better for cooler climates, if you can still find that variety. Honefs Surprise is a grapefruit like hybrid, but more orange flavoured. ..Liked Answer 1150 days 15hrs

Very fast grower - it went from a nursery whip to about 4 metres in its first year. I think I would have purchased a whole hedge if I had known. Only a handful of almonds the first fruiting season, but I wasn't expecting any, so it was very exciting to have a real homegrown almond. It's a favourite with my chooks as the branches are quite low and the shade plus protection is good.


Picture is of the first real harvest, with heaps more still on the tree. I wouldn't mind planting more of these.
