About My Edible Backyard


Why Evtilda1 Love's Edible Plants

I'm looking to establish a bit of a food forest in my backyard. We purchased our home 4 years ago and only this past year have we really had a go at rejuvenating our relatively large yard. We have two year old twin daughters and I hope to foster in them a love of nature and the outdoors (they already enjoy playing in the garden, picking Mandarins, and they love to add things to the compost tumbler).

Evtilda1's WISH LIST

Acerola - Florida Sweet 8/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Cherries are delicious, but our winters aren't cold enough. I'd like to try and grow this as an alternative







Raspberry - Heritage 9/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - I love raspberries (so do my girls) and I'd love to grow my own.







Chilli - Birds Eye 8/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - I've got some cherry tomatoes growing in some old pails and I think I'd like to try some chillis next







Finger Lime 8/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Really interested to grow one of these native limes in the backyard, I have a spot that's protected by an established Jacaranda which I think might suit. 







Davidson Plum NSW 8/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - My brother-in-law tried to grow one, but it died, hoping to put mine in a sheltered spot in the front yard (we have a large Norfolk pine that will shelter it from the afternoon sun). Interested to see how the fruit taste







Grapefruit - Star Ruby 9/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Really want to have fresh fruit and juice from one of these bad boys







Tangelo - Minneola 10/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - I think Tangelos are the most delicious citrus. Haven't been able to find one to put in the ground yet, but I will!







Persimmon - Fuyu (NA) 8/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Interested to grow some less common fruit and would like to see if the taste is different from in stores (I reckon they will)







Plum - Yarrahapinni Blood 9/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Love plums, hoping to grow my own - not convinced our winters are cold enough, we do have a Black flowering plum that was planted approx 3 years ago that has really taken off recently, so hopefully that's a good omen







Nectarine - White Satin 9/10

Why Evtilda1 wants it: - Love nectarines, particularly white ones. Hoping to foster a bit of a fruit forest on our backyard, featuring fruit that we love to eat.
