This lemon verbana, the leaves are too coarse and rough surface, what do you do with them ? I had mine pulled up from the garden bed. But it smell nice though.
Charlesstillcantspell1 says... [2869 days 23hrs ago]
Well most people make tea. Pick off half a dozen leaves or 2-3 tips pour boiling water over laeve for 5 mins. Is good. I use it in my cooking though as my daughter gets rash from citrus at the moment so its my citrus flavour. If you dice it fine and put it in most dishes you wont notice the texture. its just a little rough to eat raw.

Lime - Kaffir (Grafted) 3/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2836 days 14hrs

Comments: -

The rind of the kaffir lime is commonly used in Lao and Thai curry paste, adding an aromatic, astringent flavor. Its hourglass-shaped leaves (comprising the leaf blade plus a flattened, leaf-like leaf-stalk or petiole) are also widely used in Thai and Lao cuisine (for dishes such as tom yum), and Cambodian cuisine (for the base paste known as "Krueng"). The leaves are also popular in Indonesian cuisine (especially Balinese and Javanese), for foods such as sayur asam - literally sour vegetables, and are also used along with Indonesian bay leaf for chicken and fish. They are also found in Malaysian and Burmese cuisines.

The leaves can be used fresh or dried, and can be stored frozen.

The juice and rinds of the kaffir lime are used in traditional Indonesian medicine; for this reason the fruit is sometimes referred to in Indonesia as jeruk obat - literally "medicine citrus". The oil from the rind also has strong insecticidal properties. The juice is generally regarded as too acidic to use in food preparation, but finds use as a cleanser for clothing and hair, mainly in Thailand.

The zest of the fruit is widely used in creole cuisine and to impart flavor to "arranged" rums in the R%uFFFDunion island and Madagascar.

Apple - Granny Smith (Grafted) 5/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2836 days 14hrs

Comments: -

bought this as a lanky plant from Tass1, it has not done well. I have shade clothed it this year to try and get more growth.


The Granny Ramsey Smith green apple is a tip-bearing apple cultivar. It originated in Australia in 1868 from a chance seedling propagated by Maria Ann Smith (n%uFFFDe Sherwood, b. 1799, d. 9 March 1870), from whom comes the name.[1] It is thought to be a seed from Malus sylvestris, the European Wild Apple, with the domestic apple M. domestica as the polleniser, which would make it a hybrid.

Granny Smith apples are light green in colour. They are crisp, juicy, tart apples which are excellent for eating raw and cooking. They are favoured for salads because the slices do not brown as quickly as other varieties. They also tend to have a harder texture than other green apples.

This cultivar needs fewer winter chill hours and a longer growing season to mature the fruit, so it is favoured for the milder areas of the apple growing regions.

Berry - Elderberry (Seedling) 5/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2866 days 1hrs

Comments: - Not sure which species.

Sambucus (elder or elderberry) is a genus of between 5 and 30 species of shrubs or small trees in the moschatel family, Adoxaceae. It was formerly placed in the honeysuckle family, Caprifoliaceae, but was reclassified due to genetic evidence. Two of its species are herbaceous.

The genus is native in temperate-to-subtropical regions of both the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. It is more widespread in the Northern Hemisphere; its Southern Hemisphere occurrence is restricted to parts of Australasia and South America.

The leaves are pinnate with 5%u20139 leaflets (rarely 3 or 11). Each leaf is 5%u201330 cm (2.0%u201312 in) long, and the leaflets have serrated margins. They bear large clusters of small white or cream-coloured flowers in late spring; these are followed by clusters of small black, blue-black, or red berries (rarely yellow or white).

Watercress (Seedling) 7/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2866 days 1hrs

Comments: -

Watercresses (Nasturtium officinale, N. microphyllum; formerly Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum, R. microphylla) are fast-growing, aquatic or semi-aquatic, perennial plants native from Europe to central Asia, and one of the oldest known leaf vegetables consumed by human beings. It is an invasive species in the Great Lakes region where it was first sighted in 1847.[1] These plants are members of the Family Brassicaceae or cabbage family, botanically related to garden cress and mustard %u2014 all noteworthy for a peppery, tangy flavou

Watercress contains significant amounts of iron, calcium and folic acid, in addition to vitamins A and C.[4][5] In some regions watercress is regarded as a weed, in other regions as an aquatic vegetable or herb. Watercress crops grown in the presence of animal waste can be a haven for parasites such as the liver fluke Fasciola hepatica.[6]

Many benefits from eating watercress are claimed, such as that it acts as a stimulant, a source of phytochemicals and antioxidants, a diuretic, an expectorant, and a digestive aid.[7] It also appears to have cancer-suppressing properties; it is widely believed to help defend against lung cancer.[8][9][10][11] Due to its high iodine content, watercress has a strengthening effect on the thyroid gland, thus beneficial for suffers of hypothyroidism.

Bay Tree (Cutting) 10/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2866 days 2hrs

Comments: -

The Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis, Lauraceae), also known as True Laurel, Sweet Bay, Laurel Tree, Grecian Laurel, Laurel, or Bay Tree, is an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub reaching 10%u201318 m tall, native to the Mediterranean region.

The aromatic laurel leaves are used in many countries of central and southern Europe to flavour stews, soups, meat dishes, and even fish. They are used to season canned cucumbers or herring, or added to give aroma to vinegar.

It is also widely cultivated as an ornamental plant in regions with mediterranean or oceanic climates, and as an indoor plant in colder regions.

Mainteance free. Its in a herb garden bed so get s water and manure from them. I think this must have been in the pot to long before I bought it and the plant seems dwarfed. Very little growth in 3 years.

Olive - Azapa (Grafted) 8/10

Charlesstillcantspell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2866 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Planted 2007 years ago as large tubestock. Growing well.  Low maintenace.

Azapa, Azapena and Sevillana de Azapa

General - Table Olive, Fruit size can vary greatly - it is medium to very large (8gms average) yielding anywhere from  60-300 olives/kg and has an elongated shape with a somewhat pronounced point on  the end. Fruit is very fleshy with a thin skin. Derives its name from the  Chilean valley in which it is grown, where it accounts for about 90% of the  total plantings. Seems to originate from the Gordal Sevillana.

Climatic Considerations - Suitable  for warmer 'no frost' regions. Also being tested in other regions of Australia to check its tolerance to cold and ability to adapt

would rate this the overall best performing Kale in my garden. Tasty cooked or raw, long growing, easy growing and reasonably pest resilliant.

suggest letting it get knee high then picking out the lead head stem, when it branch you get many more smaller leaves. Better for salads etc. Lesss stalk and tenderererer. :)

Hi Charles, do your aloe vera do well in shade? I have one in pot and thinking of putting the pups under the eaves of my house...Do you know if aloe vera grow well in rocky/pebbly soil? The soil there is such and not sure if they survive.

They are very hardy. I found they are not fond of direct sun as they yellow and die. Hence the shadey location. They should be fine, find some way of keeping some moisture near the roots (mulch sounds out of the question) maybe use those moisture crystal and water once a week to hydrate them to keep the babies alive till they get established.

Good choice of yummy potato varieties, Charles. Potatoes are much more efficient sources of starch than grains (3 months instead of 6, and you can grow enough for a family at home, not like wheat). Diana.
