Babaco - I was just surfing away when I came across Mountain Paw Paw info that says they grow from 10 feet to 40 feet. I wonder if I'll have to skinny up the tree like a coconut palm to get the fruit?..3113 days 13hrs
Babaco - allybanana How about I strike them first then send them on when they're growing? I suspect that they would be better struck in spring when they start to shoot. Save you some postage and grief. Most paw paws need to dry out before you put them in soil...3113 days 14hrs

Marijuana tree - Hey Violet, you're right, stinging nettle makes a great tasting soup, as long as you pick it before it goes to flower, it then becomes tough and bitter. Nice to know about the fibre though. Any suggestions on how to harvest it?..3249 days 18hrs

Passionfruit - Supersweet 96A

Tabs's Edible Fruits
Update: 123 days 14hrs

Comments: -

var. Golden Honey.  Prolific bearer of heavenly yellow fruit.  This plant lived till last year, 2017. Last year before it died from senescence it put out a bumper crop (at the age of 14 - 15)  Can no longer find this variety. The sweetest passionfruit I have ever tasted.  The Sweet Granadilla just doesn't compare. I had no insect problems, no diseases. Was planted with morning and midday sun against the house where it was protected from frost and had water runoff whenever it rained. Its roots were under the concrete driveway where it stayed warm and moist. Wish I could get another one.

Amorphophallus bulbifer 4/10

Tabs's Edible Fruits
Update: 190 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Really fascinating 3 branched leaf with leopard markings up the single stem of light green on dark green. The flower is cream to a pink centre and develops every 2 years. The leaves develop numerous bulbs at leaflet junctions and can have up to 12 bulbs each year. Can be very weedy. Related to the big stink flower at the Sydney Botanic Gardens. Will take full sun if watered regularly but will burn in full summer heat otherwise grows in full shade. Has a large bulb at the base of the single leaf stem.  May or may not be edible.

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

None

Question:

Does anyone know if this bulb is edible? Amorphophallus konjac IS edible. They are ALMOST indistinguishable until you get to know them or the bulblettes or the flowers appear.

Walnut - English (Grafted) 7/10

Tabs's Edible Fruits
Update: 190 days 15hrs

Comments: -

var. Chandler.  While I got walnuts from this plant, I never really got it to grow well.  It ended up with a root rot fungus which I successfully eliminated but it never was happy in a pot.  My recommendation is that although you can grow them in Sydney, its best to plant these trees in the ground.  I ended up giving this plant to someone who has the room to let it grow. The closely related pecans, though, are doing well in their pots.

Had this root for years and is very prolific.  Have to watch out for wet feet as it will rot.  Will fall about everywhere so needs to be tied up.  Tastes great if not too watery and though can be eaten instead of bamboo shoots it tastes better raw than cooked.
