Banana - Lady Finger (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 16 days 11hrs

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!

Rosella (Seedling) 10/10

Bruada1's Edible Fruits
Update: 70 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Great Jam.

This Rosella plant got so big it over grew where my Daleys Grafted Kohala Longan tree is planted so had to hack it back, still got lots of fruit.

I place the seeds in a pot and just cover with water, bring to boil for 30 minutes. Then strain and squeeze the crap out of them to ger the seed juice ( called pectin), add this juice to the red calyxes before cooking and measuring/adding sugar. The more pectin the firmer the jam is likely to set.

Remember that the setting of a jam is a chemical reaction between the fruit acid, the sugar and the pectin, not an evaporative process. James set as they cool, if over-cooked the setting point may be passed and instead a thick syrup rather than a jel is formed.

A drop of vinegar on the jam surface before sealing the bottles will reduce the chance of spoilage by mould.

Soursop ( Graviola ) (Seedling) 9/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 78 days 15hrs

Comments: -

Bought from Daley Nursery, I bought all my fruit trees here, because they all arrive healthy and in good condition. I haven't lost a single plant yet (touch wood). My Soursop has been in the ground for 6 months and has a long way to go. It's growing in the coastal area of southeast Qld. It is slow growing at this stage. This could be a number of things, it loves the tropical weather (currently in subtropics) and that it hasn't been in the ground long. It will die if too cold and the new leaf will burn in hot winds (hates winds in general, hot winds even more). I have it surrounded by other plants as a sheild. I normally don't baby plant's just put them in and let them toughen up or die. I am however monitoring this plant more because I want to know the Soursop requirements and problems in less than the ideal environment. Will keep you updated. 11/02/2017 Just notice darkness on the stems near a few leaves which seem to be drooping, hoping it's not fungus. I made up some nitrosol solution and gave it a feed. It has been very hot today 37 and tomorrow will be 40 so will see how it handles the heat. Also will see if the feed helped.... Yes the feed helped leaves got greener. Loved the heat 40. I always let the ground dry completely before watering again. This plant does not like it too wet. I will upload another picture in another six months.

Muscadine Grape - Adonis (Cutting) 8/10

GlenMac's Edible Fruits
Update: 85 days 5hrs

Comments: - Liked the idea of a grape that's suited to the hot humid western Sydney climate and is able to handle humidity without the need for spraying. Not disappointed by this native grape of Texas and Florida. Tough skins but very tasty distinctive flavour. Adonis is large and juicy ... very fleshy, with pips. Puts on rampant growth, so make sure it's pruned each year (autumn/winter). A helpful tip: I Googled for info on how to manage muscadine grapes successfully. Lots of help from USA ... YouTube videos. Look for the vids from Ison and follow their pruning and growing techniques.

Fruiting Months February, March, April

Netted when noticed fruit fly interested. Draped fruit fly netting around most of vine. Grapes were saved and had good harvest ... 6-8kgs on the one vine. Will be harder to do next season ... vine will cover larger area.

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

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 101 days 11hrs

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: 119 days 14hrs

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.
