About My Edible Backyard


Why 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).

's WISH LIST

Dwarf Apple - Redlove 9/10

Why wants it: - Really interested in growing one of these beauties. I'd like to graft a granny smith onto it to get a combined Red and Green Apple tree







Dragon Fruit - Yellow 9/10

Why wants it: - I'd really like to give one of these a go, I've heard that the yellow have the best flavour. I've tried the pink skinned / white flesh variety in the past. They are quenching, but not very flavourful. I expect the yellow to have a bit more to it







Dwarf Orange - Valencia 8/10

Why wants it: - A multi graft dwarf Valencia, Lemonade, Pummelo seems like a reasonable container idea







Pummelo - Flicks Yellow (Grafted) 6/10

Why wants it: - Maybe I could have one of these interesting fruits on the same rootstock as the Lemonade and Valencia (to have oranges all year, combined with my Washington Navel).







Dwarf Lemonade 8/10

Why wants it: - Would be interesting in growing one of these in a large pot on the deck or in the yard, I don't think I have the room in the yard to provide it with enough light so maybe a half wine barrel might do







Acerola - Florida Sweet 8/10

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







Chilli - Birds Eye 8/10

Why 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 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 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
