Abundant sweet yellow fruits year round here in the tropics of Central Qld.  Our family of 6 all try to beat each other to pick these little treats!  The tree is about 8 years old and has been fruiting well for the past 3 years.  Low maintenence, just an occasional prune every couple of years to keep the tree compact and the fruits easy to reach.

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, May, June, August, September, October, November, December

Planted: 2003

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 200 Fruit Per Year

Pollination: No

When I Fertilise: Never

Pest Control:

No sprays needed.  Very little issue with pests, though occasionally the ants get in if the fruits are left to get over-ripe on the tree.
