I purchased this tree from Daleys only a few weeks ago and it is already fruiting at less than a metre high! Nearly 10 figs I have counted, which is more than the leaves that are on the tree! Not sure whether they will drop or not, but I am quite astounded. Arrived in excellent condition, growing in large pot. 

Update: all but 2 figs dropped. But these 2 are almost full sized :)

Acerola - Florida Sweet (Cutting) 10/10

Russtrac1's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 11hrs

Comments: - This tree is just planted in a pot with cheap potting mix and horse manure. I also give it daily watering and weekly worm castings just as it is getting started. The tree is growing insanely fast, it doesn't seem to mind water. In fact, the more water I give it, the faster it seems to grow! I've tasted the fruit growing at my local botanical gardens. When just red, it is very acidic. But if you leave the fruits until soft and when they fall off with just a touch, they are very sweet. Although, I actually don't mind them when they are acidic. This is an awesome fruit tree, I'd suggest it to anyone who just wants something delicious and just a bit exotic. Watch out for the leaves and branches, they can cause skin irritation.

Panama Berry (Cutting) 10/10

Russtrac1's Edible Fruits
Update: 138 days 11hrs

Comments: - I only planted this tree in a lrage pot a couple of months ago and it is growing like mad! Long branches and weeping foliage makes this a very attractive tree. It easily grows a few inches every week at this point. The tree doesn't seem to mind frequent watering when in a pot with well draining soil. I mixed in fresh horse manure and a compost blend with just some cheap hardware store cane potting mix and it seems to love it. I also give my plants a regular (weekly) dose of worm castings, and a bit of blood and bone just to give it a start. 

Planted: 2017

Height 1.5 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun
