i love the idea of growing food trees that are so everyday in culinary use, that are native. Such an exciting fruit, sure to impress with fantastic taste as well as appearance. Got a small sub tropical rainforest going and want to use as many natives as possible- (hard with quarantine laws as WA doesn't have rainforests). want to landscape with food plants, eat all of the garden.

Comments: -

just planted at 4 ft tall, but feeling good as researched it's yield v high, resistance to disease good, and good for people who want lots of fruit trees as only grows 2-3 m tall. Dug a hole almost 1m cubed, filled with well draining compost and soil, so it should be happy.
