Avocado - Fuerte (B) (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 8 days 21hrs

Comments: - It's a Type B and easy to grow. It flowers a bit too early in our cooler climate so fruit set is not great and a few are cocktail avocados. I planted it for cross pollinating our Type A's - but it tends to flower a bit earlier than all of them. 
It is a very vigorous and spreading tree, be warned. This pic is ours at 4yrs old.
Sand improvement is really important here, for strong healthy growth and good fruiting. I use plenty of Clay Plus, fine coir and a good quality compost (make sure the compost pH is not alkaline before adding it) and lots of mulchy things - even large pieces of our fire wood/logs, half buried under the canopy and drip line, as avocados have shallow feeder roots that need protecting. Their leaf litter stays where it falls and I use a complete fertiliser that has trace elements/minerals added.
It's important that their topsoil remains moist in our summers - so this can mean watering daily in a heatwave. Drainage is not an issue in our deep sands, which is a bonus for avocados, being prone to root rots due to "wet feet"

Feijoa - Mammoth (Grafted) 9/10

Julie 1's Edible Fruits
Update: 26 days 24hrs

Comments: -


Loved eating these as a kid. Pineapple,strawberry like taste but more fragrant and less acidic..

Texture is more like a kiwifruit but flesh is slightly grainy.

My two trees spent a few years in pots in the cold Adelaide hills and were not happy.

They went in the ground when we moved to southern Adelaide. Sat there for the first two seasons but has great fruit set and leaf growth this 3rd year. With good deep regular watering, the fruit size and harvest has really improved, up to 5cm long and egg shaped. Mid to late April and they are not ripe yet. Survived our VERY harsh summer this year with 0% leaf or fruit burn due to decent watering.

Flower petals are delicious and can be eaten without affecting the fruiting body.

Banana - Lady Finger (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 29 days 15hrs

Comments: -

UPDATE APRIL 2019

Picture on left is bananas in August 2018.  Lady Finger variety is upper left.

Picture on right is bananas in March 2019. They've grown particularly well.  I have 5 different varieties - Lady Finger (upper left), Blue Java (upper right and doing exceptionally well), DPM25 (middle right), Dwarf Red Dacca (lower left) and Dwarf Cavendish (lower right). Have had numerous suckers from Cavendish, Lady Finger has one good, solid sucker, Blue Java yet to sucker (and the best grower) and Red Dacca just suckering now.  Hopefully they survive Winter again - will need cover if it's a cold one.

INITIAL

Always wanted to try growing bananas, however living almost in the Macedon Ranges just north of Melbourne I thought would make it impossible.  Decided didn't care - my gardening is trial and error, not what people tell me will work. So far, has not only survived a few light frosts, but growing well - in ground with three other banana varieties & worked a heap of compost, sheep manure, dynamic lifter and potash into the soil before planting.  I use an automatic watering system so they get watered and misted every day (for a minute, mind you, nothing over the top).  Will see how they survive the Winter as it's meant to be one of the coldest ahead. Wish me luck!

Brazilian Cherry - Black Beauty (Grafted) 5/10

Farouk's Edible Fruits
Update: 34 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Very exciting moment when my wife told me to crouch down just at the moment I was complaining about my Black Surinam Cherry not fruiting yet & behold a large beautifully ripe Surinam Cherry I just tapped it very gently with my palm & came off all by itself. The skin was not too pleasant, the inner fruit alone is sweeter than red but still has sort of a weird sourish taste but I don't mind having it in the handful best fruit still, I grew it right ? The 2 large seeds looked like they were about to germinate so I put them into a seed soil pot. Looking forward to many more in future.

I wouldn't be growing these for flavour but rather for uniqueness, the common cherry is miles more delicious on a whole different level of delicious, all leaves fell off in cooler season & new growth shot up quickly late winter early spring as well as flowers in spring, the red does not loose many leaves in winter but the black lost them all pretty much, the red I have in the ground where the black is in a large pot not sure if that makes the difference ? Also the new growth made new leaves on tip growth similar to fig but didnt make leaves in the older wood although there are buds there just no shoots yet still spring though, maybe when it gets warmer.

Peanut Butter Tree 9/10

Brett7's Edible Fruits
Update: 40 days 15hrs

Comments: - I have over a dozen of these growing (in two different places in Perth). Bought six from Daleys in 2017 which are all between 120 and 200 cm tall in 100 L planter bags. All are currently flowering but only a few fruits have set. The plants which are growing the best receive approxmately six/seven hours of full sun and have sunken teracotta pots which provide constant moisture. Plants that were planted in medium shade are taller but leggy. I also have an older seven plus year old plant (originally from Daleys) which flowers but does not produce large amounts of fruit. There is a possiblity it does not get enough water... Currently experimenting with fertilisers, water and bags (to increase humidity) to see if it encourages more flowers to open.

The plants do not seem to like the cold that much with the leaves looking like they are suffering from chlorosis if not protected. 

Fruit does taste like peanut paste but does not have the best flavour or texture if left on the plant too long.

Panama Berry (Seedling) 9/10

Ant751's Edible Fruits
Update: 68 days 0hrs

Comments: -

This has to be the fastest growing tree in the world. Wow it just took off like a rocket. As can be seen in these photos mine is around 4-5 meters and I can see it wants to grow more. Proably will end up like 7m tall. Since it is only 14 months old and was pruned last year right back to 2 meters this is amazing growth indeed. Mine is getting too big for the area it is in and needs another large prune again. I am very safe in saying this tree is difficult to keep small.


It fruits all year in the subtropics (Brisbane) with little white flowers which turn to green fruit. They turn red when ripe and are a little soft. The taste is sweet and juicy, a bit like grapes in my opinion. You eat the skin just like grapes and bonus the seeds in the flesh are so small they can be eaten as if seedless. Most of mine are also grape size. So they are like seedless grapes....... Presently they are not thick on the tree but there are none the less always some on the tree ready to eat.


Sadly I have discovered a mafor problem with this tree in addition to its impossibilty to keep small. It has HUGE roots! They are extending like 5-10m from the tree and are very close to the surface. Some have even started to grow! See photo evidence. Be VERY CAREFULL where you plant! This tree is ready to rumble and will take over your back yard. Better to grow in a confined space.


I am planning to cut a decent root that is already growing and move it to a pot bag. I think it will happily grow from the root and I will soon have a new tree in a decent sized contained space. I am testing the pot bag idea with some other trees which I want to keep small. Hope it works out for the long term cause I do really want to keep this tree in my garden. I love the fruit.

Ice Cream Bean 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 131 days 19hrs

Comments: -

This tree has been growing succesfully for three years. It's been in the same pot and has grown into a nice, large tree. It was neglected somewhat for one winter and lost all of its foliage. After this, I pruned it to shape and nursed it through the remaining cold months. It returned with vigorous new growth and is taking off like a champ. The following summer, it flowered and still currently is. Hoping for fruit. Almost getting too big to bring inside through winter.

Hi Inoxa1 Your feijoa won't be in a hurry to grow now where the season is already changing and the growing times is almost over except in the tropics. Expect a lot of growth during spring onwards. I have 3 feijoas bought last spring and they have all more than doubled their sizes. Be patient and take good care of it and you will be rewarded accordingly. Happy gardening :-)

Blueberry - Blue Rose (Seedling) 9/10

BloodPlum1's Edible Fruits
Update: 149 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Update - Just got my first harvest of blueberries! I did lose one to a bird but I quickly netted the plant and protected the rest. The taste of the berries is very subtle with a hint of sweetness and none of the tartness of the store-bought blueberries. 

_______________________________________________________

Previous update - lots of little fruits have started forming all over where the flowers used to be. I applied some acidic fertiliser once the berries stated started to develop. Looking forward to heaps of tasty fruit, provided the birds don't get to them first!

_______________________________________________________

I bought this as a seedling from my local nursery this year. After a number of friends had failed attempts with their blueberry plants, I thought I'd give it a go. I did a lot of research before buying it as I had heard that they can be very fussy plants, but hardy, if they like the conditions they're in.

It is important for the soil to be sufficiently acidic. I potted it in a large 50cm glazed pot, with camellia/azalea potting mix and mixed through peat moss (which is acidic). I mulched with pine needles and every now and again throw on ground coffee which also helps to lower the ph in the soil. It's also important to only water with rainwater as tap water can be quite basic with all the chemicals they add to the water these days. 

So far it seems to be doing well. It has grown quite vigorously even in the short time I have had it. It has dropped all its leaves in the winter. Melbourne has had a particularly cold winter so I'm hoping for a good crop this year!

Update - just last week it started flowering following Melbourne's warmest August days on record! The flowers are stunning as you can see in the photo below. I've got my fingers crossed I get some fruit as the flowers are very sensitive to frost and reports of freezing winter days ahead

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Danny333's Edible Fruits
Update: 151 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Lamb Hass is a very productive & problem free tree. The fruit taste similar to Hass but are usually a little softer. The tree is quite compact for an avocado and I am growing mine in a 160L pot. This variety pollinates well on its own and is resistant to sunburn.

The tree is also much more upright compared to The spreading nature of a regular Hass tree.

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb
Fiona11 says... [757 days 17hrs ago]
Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot (Grafted) 5/10

DOB's Edible Fruits
Update: 173 days 13hrs

Comments: -

Love the fruit since first taste from a friends garden. Inspired me to try and grow my own. Delivered over a 18 months ago to Sydney climate region.

Stayed in pot it came with until we moved to Bribane region last November and re-potted. Lost leaves over winter. Went into the ground end of winter this year in a 1m x 1m x 60cm deep hole. Used good soil mixed with compost and worm castings (25%).Clay soil so I lathered clay breaker around every surface of the hole. PH Neutral.

It budded well although slow to open. November came and lowest bud produced leaves and immature fruit but then just dropped off after 2 weeks. Still has buds but noticed some have also dropped. Noticed exposed roots so I put a border around it, raised the soil and applied general fruit tree fertilizer  Have applied sugar cane mulch 

Any feedback welcome.
