Olive variety elaeocarpus serratus - Hi Linton, Yes you can definitely eat them ripe off the tree. As a young kid we used to go hunting for fallen fruit to eat as rhey were super ripe, soft and sweet.

Moring leaves yellowing - Farouk thank you. The pot is definitely well draining and the plant is well watered. Yes I do have slow release but it was added when I potted it in November. Any other suggestions?..271 days 13hrs
Moring leaves yellowing - Hi All, I was wondering if anyone knows what may be causing the leaves on my moringa tree to do this? This just started happening a few weeks ago. Up until then it has been doing very well and I've had the plant since October last year. Any adv..273 days 12hrs

Drumstick Tree ( Moringa ) (Seedling) 10/10

JenJen's Edible Fruits
Update: 180 days 12hrs

Comments: - Have always loved eating this as a curry, absolutely delicious!

Planted: 2020

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Summer

After Fruiting

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Yet to fertilise.

Pest Control: I used the baking soda and washing liquid method to get rid of a fungus it had. Worked a treat.

Question: I have yet to really water it. It is quite happy in the ground but I have found it does not like too much water. So I only water it if it has been a very hot day in the 30's.

Jakfruit - Seedling (Seedling)

JenJen's Edible Fruits
Update: 221 days 6hrs

Comments: - Great versatile fruit. You can eat it as a curry when it is green. The fruit is sweet and tasty when ripe. The seeds can be boiled and eaten plain or in a curry too. 

Height 40 Centimetres

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Question: Again I water sparingly and not often. The tropical plants I've had so far do not appear to like too much water. I'll keep it in the pot until winter passes and then plant it in the ground in soring as the weather warms up. I hope it will grown down here in Melbourne.

Wood Apple (Seedling)

Comments: -

Absolutely love this fruit. Love eating it and making it into a drink.

I am hoping I can get it to grow down here in Melbourne. Let's see how it survives winter.


Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Question: Again, another one I don't water often. I doesn't seem to like being too wet. Prefers it drier and lots of sun. I am finding it often loses its leaves and grows new ones. I hope it can last the winter, if it does I'll plant it in the ground this spring.

TRIED BUT DIED

Wax Jambu - Pink (Seedling) 7/10

JenJen's Edible Fruits
Update: 221 days 6hrs

Comments: - It was my own fault, it was doing very well, had new foliage too. I accidentally left it out on a very hot day and the leaves became too dry. In my efforts to try and revive it, I gave it too much water. Again another tree that doesn't like too much water. I have ordered a new one, fingers crossed this one does better.
