About My Edible Backyard


Why Elke Love's Edible Plants

I have been interested in growing plants from very early on, used to grow date palms from seed on the window sill in Germany in my childhood... I have a tiny Eastern Sydeny backyard and grow lots of plants in pots. I love especially unusual plants, some of them are experiments because they are marginal to this area...

Understory plants - Hi, I would plant some Davidson Plum, they look lovely, almost like a mix between palm and ferntree. Also, they cope well with shade. Midjim berries are a fav also, cute little light blue berries, very sweet. Does not grow more than a metre high and co..3193 days 12hrs

TRIED BUT DIED

Babaco Cutting 10/10

Elke's Edible Fruits
Update: 3229 days 12hrs

Comments: - Bought: 2008

This is a vey worthwile plant to grow, mine has been in the ground for one year and started bearing fruit almost immediately. Fruit are sour and best eaten cut in half and covered with a sprinkle of sugar (overnight). Or made into fruit puree for juice. Green fruit can be used in stir fries.

 

Update: it died in a very wet winter in Sydney in 2010. I did not even get a chance to save some cuttings, the whole stem rotted quite quickly and severely.

I think it dried out in its pot. This was my first plant from Daley's, so I am rather sorry about its faith...
