Markmelb's Edible Fruits
Update: 245 days 14hrs

Comments: -

With luck got hold of 4 of these from Birdwood and is loving its location in the ground - supposed to be Semi Dwarf and better, larger fruit and later than Hass (the other 3 are in pots)

Update 27 Dec 2013 Lamb Hass grown well since March pic and putting out lots of growth - added raised bed surround with lots of pine mulch no flowers this year but hope lots next year

Update 23 Feb 2015 - Lamb Hass in ground going very well now holding 4 Avos

Cropped 10 avos from a LH in 100lt bag but unfortunately no fruit this year - Avos were great tasting at about 15 months from pollination - still have 1 to pick - they take about 2 weeks to ripen.

Update Jan 28 2016 - Has about 16 avos this year

2019 - took 2mt dia ring off last year and mulched heavily - after few Metalaxyl and Aliette treatments is coming back well into the new mulch and should crop better without the Phytophera? Only 1 Avo fruit this year which is a shame :(

Update: 245 days 15hrs

Comments: -

This is the so called Home Beauty G6 Macadamia

Planted Cutting which I think may be a Birdwood plant? Has kicked on well with several flushes already

2nd year in it has stopped growing height but is thickening up and growing branches - leave down low are quite long and some grow weird and twisted but leaves are getting smaller towards the apex - anyone know what causes gnarly twisted leaves? could it be bugs munching new growth as leaves form?

Worked out twisted leaves are due to cold but has acclimatised now and is holding 20 nuts March 2019 photo - tree seems to have topped out at 4.5 to 5mt which it is supposed to.do? Lets see? 2020 should be a way bigger crop?

Planted: 2013

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Question:

Anybody know what causes  Macca leaves to grow twisted and Gnarley looking??

Jan28 2016 pic growing well but stil twisty leaves - getting shorter leaves as it matures

how do they taste in comparison to other pummelos? I know Flicks Yellow is a hybrid pummelo

They taste really good - slightly sweeter but still with a Pomello taste & segmenting and need to peel - Handle Melbournes cold well.

Also have not fertilized first year (planted Jan 2016) apart from compost and handfull of blood and bone. Will start compound fertiliser Dec 2016 10%. Jan 40%. Feb 40%. Mar10% is this correct. Some say fertilise in Autumn??

Where the heck did you find a Sue Belle? :)
Markmelb says... [1213 days 14hrs ago]
Hi ish - dont know where you are as seen you on a Sapodilla post recently but a guy in melbourne was selling these grafted a couple years ago - he has just about all including Rainbow but hes moving and may not be grafting in future but Bullen Art and Garden may have some now but not cheap and they dont post
Ish says... [1211 days 7hrs ago]
Hi Mark, thanks for that... Yes, I was trying to hunt down the fabled Krasuey Sapodilla ;) I am in Brissie. Any chance you might have details for the Melbourne guy? Love to catch him before he moves - Rainbow and Suebelle seem rare as hens teeth. Not knocking my Lemon Gold, but still.... ;) Ish

What fertiliser do you use, if any? Where at the tree do you put the fertiliser?
Markmelb says... [1187 days 2hrs ago]
I use slow release suitable for citrus & eco seaweed ish - the guy who grafts & sells white sapotes in Melb doesnt post plants and is moving home & may not be doing anymore for a while - i could be when my seedlings are grown enough
Ish says... [1186 days 7hrs ago]
Well, I would be very happy to pay for your grafting handiwork... Can honestly say I thought they were only available in the US!
