About My Edible Backyard


Why InsanityShard Love's Edible Plants

I've got two dwarf mulberry trees (One red that fruits every year one black that never fruits for some reason), a mango tree, a dwarf lemon tree, a dwarf persimim tree, we have a dwarf orange and dwarf kamquat somewhere, recurring cherry tomato plants,there should be a dwarf mandarin somewhere too, a big passionfruit vine that overtook a bottlebrush tree, 3 grape vines, and a crapton of banana trees with sugar bananas. Not sure what one of the grapes is at all, but the two I planted are a black one (Not sure what kind exactly) and the first one was a red one that really took my interest called a Christmas Grape. None have ever fruited yet but the one in the backyard that was here when we came is pretty big.

Trying to plan a garden - So, in 3-5 years I can buy a plot of land if I can save properly. I'm hoping for at least half an acre- I'll be able to make a fruit/veggie/herb garden that would be at least 11.5 meters long and 6 meters wide, probably bigger. I currently have two dwarf ..615 days 15hrs

Tabernaemontana pandacaqui - Banana Bush

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 615 days 14hrs

Comments: -

They're actually sugar bananas. Tiny, smaller than ladyfingers, but incredibly sweet and nice. Seems to fruit completely randomly and sporadically, and when one fruits, it dies and makes a new small plant so they're entirely self sustaining. You can leave the fruit on for months, it never gets bigger or ripens once it's done, you have to cut it off to make it ripen once it stops growing. Then it just pours out massive amounts of whitish juice from where you cut it for ages.

Persimmon - 20th Century (A) 1/10

Update: 615 days 14hrs

Comments: -

No clue what kind of persimim is actually is, it makes really big fruit bigger than your fist, bright yellow, very very hard. Only ever seen the fruit once since my stepdad started trying to kill it and the lemon tree. Like the lemon, massively insanely hardy.

Mango - Royal Red 7/10

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 615 days 14hrs

Comments: -

It's a pretty big mango tree that was in the backyard when we moved in. No idea when it was planted or how long it's been there but it fruits every year and attracts lots of cockatoos. I don't actually like mangos. But the trees there, and others like mangoes, especially the cockatoos. Never get the fruit, though, since all the animals get it first.

Dwarf Orange 1/10

Update: 615 days 14hrs

It's either the Mandarin or the Orange. One of them got lost during the drought and the tags fell off ages ago so we can't remember which one... It's covered in fruit, though, so not too long of a wait.

Passionfruit - Panama Red 10/10

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 615 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Not sure it's actually this, we lost the tags on pretty much all the fruit. It was actually called royal red or something, big fist sized fruits on a massive vine that covers over half of my big bottlebrush trees canopy. Always drops green fruit since the cockatoos pull them off and nibble at half of them. Very rarely fruitbats go for them too. It's on a hill, so no ladder possible, all the fruit is out of our reach. Pretty much never stops fruiting except in extreme drought or cold.

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer 4/10

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 615 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Actually no idea what kind of lemon. My stepdad keeps cutting it and the persimim back, he wants them gone but they're so hardy you can cut them down to the ground and they'll just pop back up. No idea when it was planted, it, the mango, the persimim, and one of the grape vines were here when we moved in.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling) 8/10

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 615 days 15hrs

Comments: -

It's right next to a dwarf Red Mulberry but for some reason it's never had fruits to full growth. This year, with high drought was the first time it;s grown fruit but the birds ate them all so I never got to try them. The fruits on this one are long but the ones on my Red Mulberry are very short.

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

Ants keep eating the fruit off the mulberries, but I don't want to spray them because the birds like them too and I feed them to my budgies.
