About My Edible Backyard


Why RogerG1 Love's Edible Plants

Area 12 ha soil sandy to sandy loam, rainfall summer wet season about 3 m with around another 1 m scattered through out the rest of the year, plenty of good quality irrigation, specticled flying fox by far our worst problem. Was a cane farm 25 years ago but now planted to thousands of fruiting trees.

Wongai Plum (Seedling) 10/10

Update: 3202 days 18hrs

Comments: -

This is a unique native Australian fruit tree with lots of other uses. It grows on poor soil on beach fronts of the islands of the Torres Strait. The fruit ripens in winter and tastes somewhat like a ripe date. The seeds make interesting ornaments and jewelery. The wood is extra hard and makes fine carving timber.
