About My Edible Backyard


Why Paulaf1 Love's Edible Plants

I love growing fruit trees and vegetables in my garden, in amongst other trees and ornamentals.  I'm trying to espalier a lot of the fruit trees, as I have a huge problem with rats, bats, possums, bandicoots, birds and fruit fly.........and find it easier to harvest fruit if I keep them at a  managable height so they can be covered.

We live up on the top of a ridge, so the soil is pretty crap.......lots of rocks, and the soil is as hard as rock when it is dry, and a sticky mud when it is wet.  To overcome this problem, most plantings are in raised beds, on mounds of soil, or are in pots with the bottoms cut out (and holes drilled in the side for drainage).

I have put a lot of bigger trees around the perimiter and have created a micro climate inside and now have a very sheltered garden, which my bananas and tamarillos are very thankful for.

We get most of our rain during the summer months, in the form of storms, and winter/spring is usually very dry.  We also get some ferocious winds up here.

Some of my fruit trees have been moved 3/4 times before I find the "perfect" place for them........luckily most have survived, but I have lost an avocado, persimmon, and a couple of citrus.

Tamarillo - Orange (Cutting) 8/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1499 days 5hrs

Comments: -

This tree is very easy to look after, but needs a good drink in dry weather, and a bit of protection from very strong winds.  It fruits a couple of times a year, and I find that if I take the fruit off just as they are turning orange, the fruit fly seem to leave it alone.  It is very shallow rooted, and a couple of mine have been blown over in strong winds.........and unfortunately they don't seem to recover very well.  From then on, they always seem to wilt, no matter how much I water them!!!  I have also had a couple fall over from termites in the roots.   But it's not too much of a problem, as I have seedlings coming up all around the garden, and they are also very easy to strike from cuttings.........and these fruit very quickly.

I live in a sub tropical area, and am only able to grow the orange variety, but in winter the fruits do go a lot redder.

Jaboticaba (Seedling) 5/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1787 days 24hrs

Comments: -

Dec 2012........Have had this tree for about 8/9 years now.........and I am just getting my first crop now.  We had quite a dry spell (few months), and as soon as the rain came, it was covered in flowers, and yesterday I picked about 20 fruit the size of  20 cent peices.  I bit into the first one, and there was a very bitter taste.......but that's just the skin, and once you are inside, the pulp is delicious!!!!  The pulp seems to hold on to the seed though, so you don't get much from each fruit........but the seed is lovely to suck on.

This tree on a bank in part shade, and I never feed it........it just gets leaf litter from an avocado further up the bank.

Great tree, and very easy to look after.

Avocado - Reed Seedling (Seedling) 5/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2100 days 21hrs

Comments: -

This is an unknown seedling variety, and it has been in for about 9 years.  It finally flowered this year, but unfortunately the 2 fruit that I thought would hold, fell off.  I'm hoping that a few will stay on next time.

Being a seedling tree, it grows very fast, but it's a great shade tree.

I have 4 avocados.......and all are mulched really well with sugarcane mulch which they love, as they have fine feeder roots just under the soil, and this keeps them nice and moist.

Apple - Granny Smith (Grafted) 6/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2101 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Not sure how this apple will go in out subtropical climate.  We are actually situated up in the hills away from the coast so it gets a bit colder here, so I'm hoping this tree won't be a total loss.

The last 2 winters here have been quite warm so I'm very surprised that I have harvested 3 granny smith apples over that time.

I have shaped this tree by pulling down the branches so that they are horizontal, and this has also made prunning so much easier......all I have to do is thin out the stragglers and cut the vertical growths by about 2/3rds.

Another great tree.  Fruits over a long period, so I always have fruits ripening at different times.  Only problem though is the later ones are a magnet for fruit flys......so I usually cover the whole tree.

White Sapote - Pike (Grafted) 9/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2101 days 1hrs

Comments: -

This tree fruited after having it in the ground for only a year.  The first couple of fruits it produced had quite a bitter aftertaste, and I was ready to pull it out, but the ones I have harvested this year were beautiful.  I find you have to catch them when they are just turning soft, as shortly afterwards they will ripen too quickly..........and drop from the tree, causing them to go splat!!!!!!!!

Haven't quite worked out what it tastes like yet, as there are a number of flavours combined.

This is a lovely looking tree with quite a weeping habit.

Will have to bag them shortly to keep the pesky fruit fly out.

Pineapple - F180 (Cutting) 9/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2137 days 15hrs

Comments: -

I take off all the tops of the pineapples I buy, and plant them in the garden.  They are quite an attractive plant (but very spiny), and look just like bromeliads.  They can take quite a while to form a pineapple, but as they are so easy to look after, I don't mind.  I hardly ever feed them, and they are out in the scorching sun, with little water.

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

These are the tops I have taken off bought pineapples.  They seem to take a while to get going, but once they do, they power away.

Pitaya - Red Dragon Fruit (Cutting)

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2451 days 16hrs

Comments: -

I have the red, yellow and white ones of these, but have so far only had fruit off the red one, which I loved.  Yellow one has it's first fruit on now (March 2011).

They seem to thrive in a full sun position and well drained soil.  I planted a couple of cuttings into clay thinking that once they put their aerial roots out, that it wouldn't matter what type of soil they were planted into but they both rotted and died.

And the flowers are absolutely amazing!!!!!  They open at night, so I always take a walk round the garden at that time and pollinate the flowers myself.

I love eating this straight off the plant.  I have 2 female plants as they both have the red berries, so I only get very thin stems.  The odd one is quite thick though, so are worth keeping in.

I cut them right back at the end of winter when all the fronds have died back and I give them a good feed of compost and manure just as they are pushing up new growths  and keep them well watered over summer.

This tree is very easy to look after.  I just prune it to the shape I want it, and fruit fly don't seem to bother it at all.  I get about 20 fruit off it each year which I find is more than enough as they all ripen at once.  This year I took a few green ones off every couple of days, but the ones left on the tree all ripened at the same time.  Next year will scoop them out and freeze the pulp for smoothies.

This is a lovely plant, and so easy to look after.  I had about 10 fruit off it last year but they were very sour.  I have since been told the dwarf varieties are more for looks than for the fruit, so wished I had known that before I paid nearly $50 at Bunnings.  I had it in a pot, but will find a place in the garden amongst other ornamentals for it.

This fruit tree is well worth going to the trouble of bagging all the fruit, as I find it tastes very similar to a Golden Queen peach, which is my all time favourite peach, and I'm also trying to espalier one.

This one has been in for about a year and a half, and is growing very slowly.  This is probably due to the fact that it is right at the bottom of the garden, and I sometimes forget to water it.  Still stays nice and green though.

Grape - Isabella Black (Cutting) 6/10

Paulaf1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3011 days 16hrs

Comments: -

I picked this grape because it is supposed to have more resistance to powdery mildew and able to handle humid conditions better than other varieties.  I am espaliering it onto 4 strands of wire, which I hope will also help against pests (will be able to cover it easily) and diseases (airflow). 

It has only just started to come out of winter dormancy, before any of my other grapes......but this is probably due to it being in full sun.

I've only had this tree for just over a year, and I have it in amongst some other shrubs and trees.  I'm thinking it may be too shady here for it, and when everything starts to get bigger, will be very hard to harvest the fruit.  May have to find another spot for it.

I've had this tree for a couple of years, but it has been moved a couple of times, so has stayed quite small, as it has not been able to become established.  May even have to be moved again as I think it will get too big for this position.  It has lost all it's leaves so now would be the perfect time.
