About My Edible Backyard

Why Brad2 Love's Edible Plants

Lots of pots moved from Como, the old my edibles still exists http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/my/6097/

Lots of work to be done at this property. In the ground were/are Loquat, Olive, Mulberry, Lemon, Grapefruit, some kind of pear, Rangpur Lime (sour mandarin), passionfruit (sunshine special I believe) and some as yet unknown stone fruit. Some of these are in really bad condition, and most of it is feeding the birds

Brought: Apple Pinkabelle; Blueberry: Sharpe, Misty, Northland (mr twig); Curry Tree; Lime: Tahitian, West Indian, Sunrise; Fig: 3 varieties in one pot; Pineapple; Ugni (Chilean Guava); Banana pups (largest ~1m); Cumquat Nagami; Orange unknown variety; strawberries hokowase and lots of herbs, vegies etc
