Star apple pests and diseases - Hey Peter, I thought that might be the case-Ive only ever seen the empty "shells" so to speak-i will give the white oil a hit and see what happens when it stops raining. Cheers Pete Andrew..4510 days 17hrs
Star apple pests and diseases - Gday peoples, Has anyone tried growing star apples and noticed little hard shelled,(though easily squashed between the fingers) coverings on leaves??I am guessing it may be the left over of some sort of egg/larvae protection maybe scale or something-I..4510 days 21hrs
Persimmon - Hi Jo, Basically the difference between A and N/A is the tannin levels in the fruit themselves-with A types the fruit must be very very ripe and soft, with N/A it can be picked quite hard and from what i have heard tastes pretty good!!I think most pers..4510 days 21hrs

Comments: -

I have found that the Cherimoya requires moist soil but not over water logged conditions.Also i try and maintain a steady pH between 6.0-7.0 and generally use a manutec product for fertilising then alternate to blood and bone and also fish emulsion to prevent toxic build-up of metals in the soil.

Maintenance........just steady pruining to clean up dead or damaged branches and the flowers are VERY succeptable to wind damage not to mention leaves and branches

.In general a very hardy and well balanced plant though height has to be kept in check that way it doesnt grow out of control and also have to take into account branch angles for when fruits form-the fruit can weight alot and snap branches with ease!!
