Peanut Butter Tree 9/10

Brett7's Edible Fruits
Update: 133 days 11hrs

Comments: - I have over a dozen of these growing (in two different places in Perth). Bought six from Daleys in 2017 which are all between 120 and 200 cm tall in 100 L planter bags. All are currently flowering but only a few fruits have set. The plants which are growing the best receive approxmately six/seven hours of full sun and have sunken teracotta pots which provide constant moisture. Plants that were planted in medium shade are taller but leggy. I also have an older seven plus year old plant (originally from Daleys) which flowers but does not produce large amounts of fruit. There is a possiblity it does not get enough water... Currently experimenting with fertilisers, water and bags (to increase humidity) to see if it encourages more flowers to open.

The plants do not seem to like the cold that much with the leaves looking like they are suffering from chlorosis if not protected. 

Fruit does taste like peanut paste but does not have the best flavour or texture if left on the plant too long.
