Berry - Elderberry

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 92 days 0hrs

Comments: - Removed. Way too weedy for this location, near bush. Easy to grow, deciduous in winter but not very attractive looking when naked. Suckers pretty badly. Flowers are lovely though and I used them to make elderflower vinegar.
Can be hard to source varieties that will actually produce berries and might benefit from cross pollination.

Jambolan Plum (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 92 days 0hrs

Comments: - Hasn't fruited yet so can't comment on taste. It is a vigorous grower and probably not suited to small areas. Ours is in the "rainforest" type area and is very easy to grow. It never gets chorotic or bothered by cold/heat. I think it's the parrots eating the top growth that is keeping it contained so far though.

Nanchuan Jackfruit - Artocarpus Nanchuanensis (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 95 days 23hrs

Comments: - Planted out into the ground a few months ago - and in a bit too much shade at present. Having some hiccups with chlorosis due to a type of compost I purchased being too alkaline (organic bin-recycling compost) but hopefully it will come good soon, as things settle down.
It had a tap root that looked a lot like a long yam when I planted it out - as 10cm seedling - it was quite amazing and impressive. Very like the Kwai Muk and just as fussy about pH and stuff - but also forgiving for some reason. 
A very surprising genus.

Alatococcus sequirie (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 0hrs

Comments: - Grown from seed from a bloke called Troy in Rockingham. I am really struggling to work out why this one is sulking and why it hasn't broken dormancy this summer. It looks terrible and I suspect it has something to do with it's root system - as when I planted it out I could see it wasn't very extensive and was super fine and fragile. 
It's sturdy enough in the ground now though - so I am hoping that it has been busy putting down roots and will shoot some new growth soon. I would be very upset to lose it - as it was gifted to me.
It's a rare one and there is pretty much no information on the net about how to grow it...
I have stuck to gentle liquid fertilisers and dilute seasol

Lemons (Grafted) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 0hrs

Comments: - Every back yard needs a lemon tree so there's not much more to say really! We have had problems with the Dwarf range here - due to rootstocks - so I have replanted with full size trees now. We have Lisbon lemon which does great - thorny, but nice lemons. Myer...a mild lemon and Eureka - a proper acidic lemon. 
We have a range of types so that we always have a fresh lemon on hand from the garden - as I use a lot of them in the kitchen. 
They need some help to be happy with our more alkaline conditions here.

Mandarins (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 0hrs

Comments: - I could eat Afourer mandarins all day...they are the best mandarin so far, imho. They are deep orange, juicy, sweet - but still have that lovely mandarin tang, easy to peel and not many seeds. Highly recommend them. We have had major dramas with the new Dwarf and Semi Dwarf rootstocks here - due to the sand and lime in the bore water. It's been incredibly frustrating have to pull out all of the dwarf trees we bought and replace them with full-size rootstock mandarin trees. A couple of the Semi dwarfs are doing ok - but it depends on the scion. My research seems to indicate that there can be problems with Aforurer and some rootstocks for eg.
We have Afourer, Japanese seedless, Ortanique and Clementine. The Japanese seedless is pictured - it has been moved 3 times now and has rebounded surprisingly well.

Oranges (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 1hrs

Comments: - Homegrown oranges taste fantastic and are one of my favourites. We have an Early Spanish Newhall navel (a beautiful tree with lovely fruit - my favourite - and in this picture) a Joppa and a Valencia - to spread out the fruiting season. They are all on full size rootstock as the semi-dwarf and dwarf rootstocks don't perform as well here, with the sands and tendency to alkalinity. All of our citrus get a dressing of sulphur in spring and sometimes iron sulphate during the year/winter, if needed. 
I love citrus and would always have them growing in the garden - and they taste great when homegrown. The trees are so handsome and the blossom smells divine also.

White Sapote - Lemon Gold (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 1hrs

Comments: - Scary tree because it wants to grow into a giant here. That's interesting because it behaved totally differently 700km north of here. Doesn't have any leaf drop here either. Wishing I had planted it somewhere else now, and had to cut down the second tree next to it because they were taking over. The roots are invasive so don't plant near pipes, walls etc...
Apart from that - it's dead easy to grow in our climate, is not at all fussy about the soil, the water, the winter - or bothered by pests/diseases. The fruit needs to bagged against Mediterranean fruit fly and the parrots and possums...
The fruit is beautiful - texture a bit like avocado and the flavour of lemon meringue pie, to me. Skin can be eaten also. 
Self fertile and a good cross pollinator. If only the fruit were bigger and more numerous.
I have to hack this tree back by 50% every 2-3years.

Feijoa (Cutting) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 97 days 9hrs

Comments: - Acca sellowiana. Sadly it's almost impossible to get named varieties in WA, especially now there is the myrtle rust problem and quarantine bans. So we are stuck with generic "non name" plants - which don't produce very impressive fruit. 
The tree is easy to grow but can take some time to start flowering and fruiting - seems to vary for different people/plants and locations. Is prone to scale and sooty mould if grown in too much shade and/or damp conditions, here. 
It's not bothered by the lime in our bore water.

Dragonfruit - various (Cutting)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 97 days 10hrs

Comments: - Hylocereus sp. We are growing a Red flesh/red skin, a white flesh/yellow skin and two purples: Haylee's comet and Purple Haze. They have been moved around a lot and not had the chance to fruit yet. 
I am growing them on large steel Painter's trellis-ladders...hopefully they will be strong enough. I plant them in a very large pot that has the bottom cut out of it. I fill the pot with cacti & succulent potting mix. This allows for really good drainage in in winter here - but also allows the roots to go exploring into the soil under the pot as well. Works really well. 
They can grow in full sun in Perth but might get sunburnt on the 40C days. Sunburn is not good as the damaged parts can go rotten in winter. Some afternoon shade is a safe option, for our hot summers.

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 97 days 10hrs

Comments: - Removed. It didn't get enough chill here to flower reliably - even though Bruno needs far less chill than Hayward and should have been ok here. I actually prefer the Kiwiberries anyway.Large vines that need a very strong trellis and resent hot weather and especially hot winds. Need a great deal of water on hot days. Not a water-wise plant here. Doesn't like any alkalinity either - gets chlorosis readily. 
Needs some shade here and lots of sand improvement to increase it's water holding capacity.

Davidsons Plum - QLD (Seedling) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 97 days 10hrs

Comments: - D.pruriens. It's a very handsome tree but I really don't like the fruit - for anything so far. It is unbelievably sour. I am impressed that it grows so well here though, considering we get the odd light dusting of frost on the low part of our property. It's not all phased by winter here. We do have deep sands here though - so drainage is sharp.I have planted this in an area that has an overhead canopy that provides light shade - to mimic it's rainforest origins. I mulch it a bit like a forest floor also - using logs and leaf litter, prunings etc.

Avocado - Hass (A) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 97 days 10hrs

Comments: - Easy to grow. Lovely fruit. Self pollinating (but way better now we have a bee hive also) We harvest after winter - around November, as the fruit tastes so much better after the cold weather and it's water content drops. A great choice for a backyard tree, along with Reed. 
I apply a lot of varied types of mulching materials, including logs/wood, like in the photo. There is evidence that with appropriate mulching we can encourage increased growth of the beneficial fungi in the soil - which can help outcompete any pathogenic fungi. This is very helpful for avocados.

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 1hrs

Comments: - This is a new hybrid variety here. Produces huge yellow fruits that have a lovely flavour and sweetness. Starts fruiting in it's first season and prolifically. The fruit did tend to take awhile to ripen though and many were affected by the rainy and cool weather in late Autumn/winter. The vine was in a spot that was probably not ideal for winter. I have started a new vine in a much warmer/drier and sunnier (for winter) spot and will see if this works better.  

Planted: 2017

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Slow release organic chook manure pellets, a couple of small side dressing of potash in summer, sometimes Acid lovers fertiliser. Mostly try not to overdo the nitrogen.

Quince - Smyrna (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 1hrs

Comments: - Cydonia oblonga. An old tree that was already here when we moved in. Bears ample fruits that are very large and can be 0.5kg each. Easy to peel with a potato peeler. Gets a nice red colour when baked and has great flavour. The tree is easy to care for and happy with a general fruit tree fertiliser here. Get's pruned back to half it size again, when dormant.

Lucs Garcinia - Limoncillo (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 1hrs

Comments: - Garcinia vleerackii. Really sulking. I am having a lot of trouble with this one. I suspect it migth improve as it gets bigger - but it's so slow growing that it might not get a chance, as it goes dormant over winter. I might have to pot it up now and wait another couple of years before I plant it out again.
I am impressed that it got through last winter ok though - given it's so small.

Planted: 2018

Achacha (Seedling)

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 1hrs

Comments: - Garcinia humilis. Seems to be sulking for some reason - it might be the bore water causing a pH problem, the temperatures or the soil mix - as this last set of leaves are chlorotic and much smaller than they should be. A bit frustrating. Other seeds grew out of the ground where I threw the seeds after a feast of shop bought fruit. They doing better, so far - but are much smaller. I am hoping that it will become a bit more robust as it grows older.

Ice Cream Bean (Seedling) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 1hrs

Comments: - Inga sp. I like the "floss" around the seeds but my family aren't as impressed. I also planted it because it's a nitrogen fixer and I like the tree too. It has grown very fast here and is already 6m tall, and about 5m wide.
It is not bothered by our bore wateralkalinity or our winter weather. It is easy to grow.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 9hrs

Comments: - Not that fussed on this tree. It's droopy and dense growth is not good for air circulation through the canopy and it doesn't seem to set a lot of fruit as yet. The fruit is the more watery type, thin skin.

Avocado - Reed (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 9hrs

Comments: - I love this tree - the fruit is amazing and even better if you let them hang on the tree for an extra month or two. Buttery, nutty, creamy and huge. A lovely handsome tree - very vigorous and fruits prolifically. Highly recommend and tolerates cool weather no problems here.
We harvest ours from Christmas onwards. Our fruits won First Prize at one of the country Ag shows last season too.
They grow well in our sand that has been improved with the clay plus, fine coir, compost and lots of OM - which makes the rich organic loam that they particularly need to thrive.

Avocado - Fuerte (B) (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 9hrs

Comments: - It's a Type B and easy to grow. It flowers a bit too early in our cooler climate so fruit set is not great and a few are cocktail avocados. I planted it for cross pollinating our Type A's - but it tends to flower a bit earlier than all of them. 
It is a very vigorous and spreading tree, be warned. This pic is ours at 4yrs old.
Sand improvement is really important here, for strong healthy growth and good fruiting. I use plenty of Clay Plus, fine coir and a good quality compost (make sure the compost pH is not alkaline before adding it) and lots of mulchy things - even large pieces of our fire wood/logs, half buried under the canopy and drip line, as avocados have shallow feeder roots that need protecting. Their leaf litter stays where it falls and I use a complete fertiliser that has trace elements/minerals added.
It's important that their topsoil remains moist in our summers - so this can mean watering daily in a heatwave. Drainage is not an issue in our deep sands, which is a bonus for avocados, being prone to root rots due to "wet feet"

Dwarf Custard Apple - Tropic Sun (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 21hrs

Comments: - This is our very first fruit, but the tree has been flowering for the past 2yrs. Seems to have some trouble self pollinating so I may have to assist next time. It's almost totally deciduous in our winter here. It's growing strongly and is in a large raised bed facing north - in our pool area which has a 6ft brick wall around it - so a nice microclimate in winter and summer.

Cinnamon apple - Pouteria glomerata (Seedling) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 22hrs

Comments: - Surprisingly hardy here - survived it's first winter last year, in the ground - at just 15cm tall. Get's a little chlorotic/winter yellows but this may improve as it gets bigger. Has already been transplanted and didn't miss a beat. Could be a great warm-temperate rootstock candidate perhaps.

Jackfruit - Galaxy (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 22hrs

Comments: - Artocarpus heterophyllus. I think this might be the most southern growing Jackfruit in WA as I don't know of any others this far south. It's doing really well, surprisingly. The test will be to see if it can flower and fruit down here though. It does get a little bit of tip die-back in winter - due to the cold - but this is becoming less of a problem as it gets older and taller (and it depends on the winter also, some are much colder than others) 
I have placed it a protected, north facing position on our south boundary so that it gets plenty of winter sun - as winter can be the deal breaker for these more warmth loving plants here.

Jujube (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 22hrs

Comments: - We have Chico and Li and they are very easy to grow. They are deciduous so handle the cool, wet winters no problems - and very heat tolerant. The fruit is superior with regular watering in summer though. They are thorny and sucker alot. A tree mat can help prevent some of the suckers from coming up. 
They taste like dried apples, to me.

Longan - Seedling (Seedling) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 99 days 22hrs

Comments: - This tree is now about 10yrs old and still hasn't had fruit yet. It got it's very first flowers this summer, only a very few, but maybe next year it will get started properly. I think this selection might be chill-sensitive as it get's the winter yellows - which disappear once the weather warms up again in Spring.
This tree was relocated from up north, with us, and has been planted here since 2012.

Mango - Mahachanok/King Thai (Grafted) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 9hrs

Comments: - This is the best tasting mango I have ever eaten - either here or overseas etc. It's incredible. A lovely complex flavour that is sweet but has this addictive sub-acid undercurrent to it's flavour profile. I am crazy for them. Little fibre, super flat seed - so very large flesh-seed ratio. If you love mangoes then do yourself a favour and plant this one - you won't regret it. The tree is also a semi dwarf type - which is very handy. 
It flowers all winter long down here - but only sets fruit once the rains have stopped in mid Spring really. It sets quite a lot of fruit and would imagine that it must set far more in a warmer and drier climate than ours.
I still haven't got my head around the timing of fertilising - in our climate. This selection might be a little more sensitive to boron deficiency though I think - which is a soil-mobile element that can leach from fast draining soils - especially if overwatered (either by heavy rains or retic) I will be adding a very small amount boron at the start of spring, in future, having had problems with insufficiency this spring which caused all the first fruits to fail to thrive and grow,  and then crack open.

Blueberry - Misty (Cutting) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 9hrs

Comments: - This variety seems to be more tolerant of our sandy soils here in WA - and I have found it performs the best in our heat and with the slightly limey bore water. It is a Californian bred variety so perhaps that is why. Fruits very well. I apply sulphur (sand-grain size) in late winter, to help keep an acid pH in the soil. Sometimes I use iron sulphate during the year also. We have one Sharpe Blue to assist with cross pollination and it prefers to be in a more shady spot, I have found I have trouble getting them to push vigorous new canes - to replace the old growth.
No Nitrates for blueberries - as they have limited nitrate reductase enzymes to break it down. I use ammonium forms - which are also acidifying, which is what blueberries like also.

Cane Berries - Various (Cutting) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 22hrs

Comments: - I really love cane-berry fruits - but they are not for the time-poor, I don't think. These are the Logan berries - which did so well and were totally delicious. But the vine was such a pain to control here. It was really vigorous and wherever it touched the ground, even slightly, it took root. Netting prickly vines against the birds is fine - until you need to get the net off. 
If you have the time, the space and the determination then they are great. I don't, at this point in time.I also couldn't be bothered sorting out the 1 and 2yr old canes either. 
I did like the Autumn fruiting raspberries for the fact that they all got pruned after fruiting - no dramas with 1 or 2yr old canes. But the fruit was a bit bland in this climate - I think they really need top-notch soils and proper chill, to taste like real rapsberries should.

Longan - Chompoo 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 24hrs

Comments: - Marcotted so it starts fruiting straight away. I pruned the fruitlets off for the first year, left some for the scond year - but I probably should just let the tree focus on growing instead. It seems a bit less fussy than the Kohala when it comes to the bore water and rarely gets chlorosis. It might be a varietal difference, or not.

Comments: - Another kind donation that is doing pretty well so far. It has been in a  previously more shady location and was moved 2 weeks before this picture taken. It's handled that fine. Growth was a bit slow in previous spot. It's new home is a bit more open and I am hoping it is big enough to cope with that these cold winter nights to come.

Comments: - Grown from seed by a friend - it is going into it's second winter in the ground - and is doing pretty well considering it's still small. It was moved to a more sunny spot, two weeks before this picrture taken and seems to be fine with that. Quite a tough little plant so far. Has flowered this summer but didn't set fruit.

Bamboo - Taiwan Giant (Cutting) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 10hrs

Comments: - One of the largest edible clumping bamboos. Very tall and stems can get very large. I am hoping that the climate here will keep it in check as they only push new stems in Jan/Feb. Growth of those stems is incredible to watch - so fast. I haven't eaten any yet - I am really after the stems at this stage. This one has just gone through it's second summer (or maybe third) so the stems are not full size yet.

Update: 101 days 10hrs

Comments: - An edible clumping giant bamboo. Grows alot slower than our other varieties as it doesn't like the cold as much. It only puts out 1-2 stems in summer. The stems can take over a year to turn black. It's a beautiful bamboo species and well worth the wait though.

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 10hrs

Comments: - Not as tasty as a real passionfruit - but I like them anyway. They fruit when not much else is around, here, so a welcome change from the usual early spring lack of fruit variety. They need a cool root run here and shade from midday onwards in our hot summers. Being so early they beat the fruit fly season also.

Dwarf Plumcott - Spring Satin (Grafted) 3/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 10hrs

Comments: - Removed. The top growth was pretty much a full size tree and outgrew the rootstock very quickly. It fell over in a storm, at 2yrs old, as a result. Very unhappy with the plant. The rootstock-scion combo might not be suited to lighter soils as I had the same problem with the entire range of this brand of stone fruits - and have either removed or lost all seven of them.

Wampee (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 10hrs

Comments: - I love the Guy Sam fruits - they are so moreish. Have had trouble getting the Yeem Pay to grow here. I have several seedling plants now, to see what they produce. If the Guy Sam fruits were bigger they could be so popular. 
Weighting the branches down inceases flowering, like it does for apples. They also need any alkalinity managed and prefer slightly acidic and organic rich soils. 
A nice looking large bush here, bees love the flowers. Likes regular watering. 
Our two 10yr old trees were relocated from 700km north and handled this well. I recently lost one of these - I don't know why at this stage. It died quite suddenly.

Canistel

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 21hrs

Comments: - Pouteria campechiana. I grew them from seeds - from a man called Mike in Cairns. It's been a long road with these seedlings and I have nearly lost them at times - but I finally have one growing well now, and another hanging in there. Fingers crossed. They don't like our winters here - but as they get bigger I suspect they will get hardier?
These are planted in large raised garden beds that are north facing, around our pool area. Quite challenging here.

Tamarillo - Red (Seedling) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 21hrs

Comments: - I love tamarillos and home grown are a bit sweeter than shop/commercial ones, I think, and I don't need sugar with ours. A very easy small tree to grow - but needs shelter and/or support in windy weather. Loves a good feed and water. Fruit fly don't touch ours. Tip pruning encourages new growth = more fruit. Prune after fruiting to get rid of aphid build up. Prolific bearer.

Peanut Butter Tree (Seedling) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 22hrs

Comments: - Fun to grow and the fruit does taste like peanut butter. I suspect this species is chill sensitive as it becomes chlorotic in winter once the night temps are less than about 8C - followed by bright sunny days. It recovers perfectly fine in spring so I don't worry too much about it. I use acidifying agents for them though as they don't like the lime in our bore water.

Kwai Muk (Seedling) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 22hrs

Comments: - Artocarpus hypargyreus. A very handsome slow growing tree. Ours is about 10yrs old now and was transplanted twice within it's first 5years. It's growing well now that it has a permanant spot. It does need some management with regard to the lime in the bore water. I apply some sulphur in spring (sand grain size) They do need a bit of water to get established in our fast draining sands. They are quite tough I think - having handled a semi-arid zone and now a warm temperate zone. 
Needs no pruning here. We have only had male flowers so far. 
We also have a 20cm seedling tree in the ground and it's remarkably hardy. The Kwai Muks seem to spend a bit of time getting their roots established first - and then they take off?

Japanese Raisin (Seedling) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 24hrs

Comments: - Seeds accidentally went through the washing machine in a pocket but then germinated 100% when planted out. Growth rate is fast but they don't seem like hot winds or even hot temperatures. The leaves burn readily in summer here - which makes the tree not look all that good. It's a shame as the "fruit" tastes really good...I think it's tastes like banana cake - but raisin is close enough also. Our trees have been moved twice now and handled that well. I am hoping that they won't burn so easily once their root systems are more established.
They seem to like the clay soils further south - where it's cooler and good apple growing country. They readily drop their lower branches as they age.

Banana 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 24hrs

Comments: - We have some other types that have anecdotal identifications (ie: not from a known tissue culture source) a few are Bluggoes, a Monkey Finger and a possible Saba. We also have a known Carnarvon Cavendish. I only keep some of these to share with others, because I have the space to preserve them. 
The bluggoe bunches are smaller/sparser and the plants are tall and lanky - making them more susceptible to blowing over in strong winds when carrying a bunch. 
I prefer the more squat/fat stemmed plants as they usually hold up their own bunches without added support.

Banana - Dwarf Ducasse 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 24hrs

Comments: - My favourite banana out of our vareties. It has an amazing flavour, sweet but a touch of sherbet, and a heavenly banana flavour. Does not discolour when dried.
A nice small plant too...very easy to harvest at ground level. Big bunches, sturdy in strong winds. A prefect choice for a backyard banana.
They need a lot of water in our WA sands and are heavy feeders - so it is best to improve the sand with kaolin clay and fine coir compost, to save water and fertilisers. It takes about 1.5yrs for a pup to bring a bunch to harvest here.

Grumichama - Black (Seedling) 6/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 1hrs

Comments: - I love the flavour of these fruits but the seed to flesh ratio is too high for them to be anything more than a novelty fruit, at this stage. I suspect the species is chill-sensitive as it gets the winter yellows (chlorosis) when the overnight temps are <8C and the days are bright and sunny. They also do not like lime and need alkalinity managed in soils that are more alkaline than neutral and/or irrigation water that also has higher levels of calcium carbonate (lime).
They only fruit once per season here. They need plenty of water in sharply draining soils. They seem to prefer some afternoon shade in our hot WA summers also.

Jaboticaba (Seedling) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 1hrs

Comments: - These have really been a labour of love, and sheer stuborness, for me.There are not so many fruiting Jaboticabas in WA and they really sulk if the conditions are not right for them. They seem to loathe any lime and/or salinity - becoming chlorotic and burnt in the summer. They also don't appreciate our fast draining sands so they really need the soil to be improved - like we do for avocados. 
I imported 4 plants from Daleys about 10yrs ago, before the myrtle rust ban came into effect. They nearly died in the harsh conditions in the midwest so I put them into tree sacks and into a shade house - giving them only rainwater and gentle slow release organic fertilisers. They made an astounding recovery. 
They were relocated here 6yrs ago and are now just starting to fruit. It's still a bit challenging to keep them happy as we have lime in our bore water. They respond very well to some iron sulphate when they are looking chlorotic due to alkalinity problems.
I don't know what type they are - probably just a common variety that was around 10 yrs ago.

Cape Gooseberry (Seedling) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 1hrs

Comments: - This is a superior seed from Thailand. The fruits are much bigger than our usual backyard varieties. Love this fruit because it tastes great and also comes in it's own fruit fly proof case. It fruits over winter also - providing variety when there is not much else. 
Reasonably regular feeding and watering gives better tasting fruit. I plant in semi-shade in summer and full sun in winter.

Sapodilla 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 1hrs

Comments: - We have a grafted Tropical, Sawo Manila and Krausey. They are very hardy plants and have been transplanted here, from 700km north (and a much warmer climate) They fruit prolifically - especially the Tropical variety - but the fruit fly love them also. The fruit takes awhiel to ripen in this cooler climate - but tastes just as good.

Sweet Leaf Bush (Cutting) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 9hrs

Comments: - Sauropus androgynus. Has to be grown in a pot here - the winter is a bit too cold for it in the soil, out in the open. I move the pot under the eaves on the north facing verandah in winter and it does well there in the warm sun. It rarely needs water at that time and I don't harvest it, as it's not actively growing. Otherwise it's very fuss-free. The leaves are delicious - like green peas.

Lychee Tai So 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 9hrs

Comments: - Marcotted. Only very small as yet. Doesn't like the lime in our bore water so has to managed the same as the Kwai Mai Pink we have. Tai So is reputed to be a more heat tolerant variety than Kwai Mai Pink - for Perth. It will be interesting to see how it performs in my slightly colder and wetter winters here. I am hoping that cross-pollination will improve fruit set for both lychees.

Lychee Kwai Mai Pink (Grafted) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 9hrs

Comments: - Previously known as Bosworth 3. A compact tree here and has been quite challenging to get to fruit. It doesn't like the lime in our bore water so I have to use acidifying fertilisers to keep it green and happy. I can become a little chlorotic in our winters - so is perhaps chill-sensitive. Is very recalitrant to flower and fruit. Had no flowers this season due to a boron insufficiency, for eg.
I am hoping it will improve as it matures. When I do get fruit it is delicious of course.I have planted Tai So nearby in the hope that cross pollination might also help.
This tree was dug up 7yrs ago and relocated from Geraldton, so it is 10yrs old now.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 10hrs

Comments: - Fairly easy going to grow although needs support when young, and a sheltered spot -  and to manage the top growth via pruning as it tends to grow faster than the roostock. Fruits prolifically so tends to drop a fair amount to compensate. Can get second and thrid flushes of fruit in summer, after the main crop - especially after some tip pruning. Fruit is very tasty - but quite sweet. A drier fruit than the Black English type - so very little staining.

Mulberry - White Shahtoot (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 10hrs

Comments: - A big vigorous deciduous tree with a lovely arched branching habit. Fruits prolifically and holds it's crop well. Large fruit that are very sweet, I think they taste a bit liek honey. Too sweet for some folk but if they are picked when still a touch green then more tolerable. Can get further flushes of fruit over summer - especially after some tip pruning.

Kiwiberry - Issai (Cutting) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 10hrs

Comments: - The fruit is lovely and so far has not had fruit fly strike. The birds don't notice it either. I find our homegrown fruits sweeter than the shop bought fruit - perhaps because it's not picked as early. It's a very vigorous deciduous vine and likes to twine around things. Needs a sturdy trellis. Doesn't not like hot winds and needs plenty of water in summer. Does not tolerate our hot summer sun so our vines are planted facing east and/or under some shade. They get morning sun only and have a cool root-run. They don't like alkalinity - either in the soil, the water or the fertilisers.
They are self fertile but it's helpful to have more than one vine, or a male kiwifruit vine that flowers simultaneously, for increased fruit.

Rose Apple (Seedling) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 10hrs

Comments: - I like these fruits because they are so easy to grow and don't get fruit fly. The fruit is better/moister if the tree is watered well when fruiting. Tastes like turkish delight. The new growth is quite red so it looks good in the garden also.

Tamarind Sweet (Seedling) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 10hrs

Comments: - 100% germination and vigorous growth from seeds collected from this packet of Thai sweet tamarind whole pods. I find this fruit quite addictive but it's best to only eat small quantities at a time as it has a laxative effect otherwise. 
This is an experiment to see if they can be grown this far south. I have some in the ground, 30cm high, to see how they cope with our winter, and others in pots - to grow bigger. This one is the fern-leaf type.
