About My Edible Backyard


Why Arcobelina Love's Edible Plants

Arcobelina, can you comment on the taste, or is the 5/10 what you think of them? Can you elaborate? Thank you.
arcobelina says... [2064 days 3hrs ago]
its fairly ordinary.... but we have a jabacotiba next to it, grumichama a few paces away, nectarine and banana and passionfruit in theyard too. but when I lived in Canberra the loquat was the exotic fruit
frenchie says... [2063 days 1hrs ago]
oh, thanks for this answer. Trying to find a fruit that i won't find at the supermarket, but i want something tasty. Jaboticaba and grumichama are definitely going in! I will look at some of the sapotes instead!

frenchie - had a think about it and the loquat fills a hole when there isnt much else in the garden as far as fruit goes. If you have the room plant on and you will have the first fruit of spring time from it
