Hi CJ, We are only a few kms north of you & have managed to grow a lot through trial (& a fair bit of error!) Good luck-it'll be worth the hard work now to pick your own produce, Kath

also, we have the Tropic Snow Peach on your wish list-put it in last winter, espaliered it & now loaded with fruit-obviously likes the area so go for it!!!

CJ, does your quince loose all its leaves in the warm Perth winters? If so - when does it tend to drop its leaves?
CJ1 says... [2624 days 11hrs ago]
Hi BJ, it has been very, very reluctant. Last weekend I gave it a good prune and removed the last of the leaves, which had changed colour but not quite dropped off. The tree is planted against a north-facing, cream-coloured fence, so that probably doesn't help!

Pitaya - Red Dragon Fruit (Cutting)

CJ1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2624 days 11hrs

Comments: -

Just got started on this one (red with white flesh) with a cutting from a friend. Currently its about 30cm tall. Dotted with rooting power and planted in potting mix. Will wait and see!

Also picked up a red flesh pitaya recently from Tass1. Now I need to find a spot for them!

12/06/10 - and another cutting from Tass1, this time yellow skin white flesh. Treated same as above. My other two have had lots of new growth over summer but seem to be slowing a bit now in winter.

Got this one as a freebie. It's barely more than a twig at the moment and doesn't seem to be enjoying the winter at all. Hopefully it will be happier when summer arrives and it takes off in true lilly pilly fashion!

Beautiful plum flowers- did these fruit OK after they flowered in the first year? I have one with a gulfgold for pollination.
CJ1 says... [2675 days 5hrs ago]
Hi Diana, had quite a bit of fruit set but didn't allow to mature. Will see how they go this coming season now that tree is nicely settled.
