About My Edible Backyard
Why Julie 1 Love's Edible Plants
It is rewarding and satisfying in so many ways to create an edible garden space. The mini beasts are also building in numbers and are helping to create a balance both above and below the soil.* You need your own My Edibles Page to contribute Quick & Easy
Julie 1's Edible Fruits
Update: 85 days 11hrs
Loved eating these as a kid. Pineapple,strawberry like taste but more fragrant and less acidic..
Texture is more like a kiwifruit but flesh is slightly grainy.
My two trees spent a few years in pots in the cold Adelaide hills and were not happy.
They went in the ground when we moved to southern Adelaide. Sat there for the first two seasons but has great fruit set and leaf growth this 3rd year. With good deep regular watering, the fruit size and harvest has really improved, up to 5cm long and egg shaped. Mid to late April and they are not ripe yet. Survived our VERY harsh summer this year with 0% leaf or fruit burn due to decent watering.
Flower petals are delicious and can be eaten without affecting the fruiting body.
