Ice Cream Bean 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 10 days 9hrs

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: 28 days 8hrs

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: 29 days 19hrs

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.

Maybe it is more subtropical than a warm temperate zone.  Likely it wasn't protected enough

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions until we can actually be there full time to care for the more delicate

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... [636 days 6hrs 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.

Banana - Lady Finger (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 47 days 7hrs

Comments: - 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!

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot (Grafted) 5/10

DOB's Edible Fruits
Update: 52 days 2hrs

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.

Chilli - Rocoto Tree 6/10

ManishU's Edible Fruits
Update: 58 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Update 06-Dec-2011:Tree doing really well and producing lotsa chillies :) New pic attached. The chillies are not very hot though.


Update 30-Sep-2011:

The tree is doing well after planting it in the ground since i last posted about the aphids problem.


Love the idea of having a chilli tree !!!

The leaves of my chilli plants are curling from the day i received this from Daleys. Not sure what the problem is. Another chilli plant close to it is also having the same problem.

Searched the internet for clues and it seems it a viral disease propagated through the seed OR caused by aphids. I have a few more chilli plants close by but they seem to be doing alright.

Can i save my chilli tree ?

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Maxzoo's Edible Fruits
Update: 90 days 1hrs

Comments: -  Small size. Photo taken a year after planting- it has grown alot and definitely changed shape. It is a bit weepy compared to others. I picked the flowers off this year, maybe next year I will leave them on. I have an earth bag underneath it that drip waterers it most of the time and it seems happy. I have had a shade cloth over it but it seems happy enough without it on- no real sunburning or wilting going on yet (its only spring now..)

Rhubarb - Sydney Crimson 10/10

Auslindamac1's Edible Fruits
Update: 91 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Mt.Crosby, Qld

Who doesn't like rhubarb? :)  Bought Sydney Crimson crown from Daleys, Aug 2018. Harvested first 2 stems Oct 2018.- the photo is of one of these - and they were seriously YUM! Flavour is first-rate, more interesting and complex than what I'm used to. Maybe because those others were shop-bought?
Shame we can't also eat the leaf when it looks as good as that. Haha.
Growing (like the clappers!) in 35 litre Bonsai Bag (my 'nursery' prior to moving house). Full sun until about 1 pm.
Soil mix is 60% cocopeat, 40% Searles Platinum.
Troforte M Fruit and Citrus microbial controlled release fertiliser added at time of planting.
