Fruit fly control - You're right, I had a good crop of rocotos until last week..the heat after the rain has helped the fly population and now 3/4 of production is ruined. Tomatoes grow next to it and they are fine!...maybe rocotos have something that attract these bugs. I h..2843 days 3hrs

Peppino - I've just harvested some of these for the first time. I thought they were a very nice fruit, maybe a cross between a paw paw and rockmelon but not as sweet, yet still sweet enough to be enjoyable. I left them on the tree until they were a deep orange ..Liked Answer 1710 days 18hrs

CHILLIES ARE SO PROLIFIC FOR SO LITTLE EFFORT. I'M A CHILLI LOVER AND ROCOTOS ARE MY FAVORITE.

I PLANTED SPEARMINT UNDERNEATH AND THIS KEEPS THE BUGS BUSY...THEY EAT MINT LIKE CRAZY SO IT DOES NOT TAKES OVER MY GARDEN KEEPING THE CHILLIES SAFE. I LOSE ABOUT 10% OF FRUIT THIS WAY BUT THERE'S NO NEED TO SPRAY. IT'S AMAZING HOW THESE BUGS DON'T BURN WITH THE HEAT.

Pepino - Kendall Gold (Cutting) 9/10

I love this fruit so I bought a couple of plants from Daleys last October and they fruited pretty much straight away.  I planted them in a spot where they get full sun in the morning. I placed dried sea grass as mulch and more surface roots proliferated as a result they have spread a lot in a short time, snails dislike the mulch so they keep away. I'm waiting for the fruit to ripen, just got afew purple stripes. I fertilise with seasol every three weeks and I also placed a handful of slow release pellets under the mulch. I'm already making new plants from cuttings for next season...no need for rooting hormone. I water daily, but with so much rain there's no need...the watering is being done for me. Only keep fruit off the ground...I cut some PET bottles and use the bottoms to lift the fruit.
