Used to eat the red kind when I was little. Has grown very quickly and started fruiting almost immediately, although I've been removing the fruit and buds to encourage it to grow more (I hope this is the right thing to do to a guava). Next year I'll eat them all.

Raspberry - Heritage (Seedling) 10/10

KitschWitch's Edible Fruits
Update: 2075 days 16hrs

Comments: -

These are one of the best fruits we grow--very tasty, easy to grow and quite a long fruiting season. They taste so much better fresh than frozen, canned or supermarket bought.

We have quite a few varieties of raspberry. They all taste good, but  the Heritage ones have a long fruiting season through autumn (even up to June), but just a few fruits at a time. It's worth growing quite a few Heritage plants. Just buy one to start with though, because they spread like crazy from the roots so by the next spring year you will have 10 plants or so. They can be pruned out if needed and replanted elsewhere and will also grow easily from stem cuttings.

The Heritage variety fruit in their first season (from a spring planting), on the new growth. After fruiting it's best to prune them right back to ground level since those stems won't fruit again. This is easier than pruning summer-fruiting raspberries which fruit on the seond year's growth (so you have to leave the new shoots and cut back only the ones that fruited).

The stems grow fairly tall (2m) and tend to flop over if left. Ours are loosely supported by a nearby mesh fence. you can also tie nearby stems to a tall stake. This works really well and is flexible.


I estimate .5kg of fruit per plant per year--one plant = one stem. Our huge patch arose from one original plant though!

Sounds like you have a very successful mandarin tree there. For some unknown reason my mandarin produced no fruit this year but every other year it has. I get fruit mainly in summer though.

satsuma mandarin (Grafted) 10/10

Yum's Edible Fruits
Update: 2589 days 0hrs

Comments: -

Mandarin Silverhill (a satsuma selection) grafted onto a troyer citrange rootstock.

This is an almost pest free, small tree with fragrant flowers and delicious seedless fruit.  It's frost hardy and fruits early which makes it an excellent choice for Canberra.  The fruit is so good that I'm surprised i have never seen satsuma mandarins in the shops (or even one satsuma mandarin tree).  They look a lot like small tangelos.

Our tree has survived being almost ringbarked twice by our pet rabbit and drought.  However, last season i watered it regularly, and consequently had an excellent crop of good sized fruit.

I am looking forward to more vigorous growth once the bark has fully regrown. 

I'm not really sure when i planted it.  1999 is just a good guess, but probably earlier.

Fruiting Months March and April

Planted: 1999

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Autumn

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: varies, compost, rabbit manure and urine, possum manure, cow manure, blood and bone with potash, proprietary organic fertilisers and i have used osmocote citrus food some years ago.

When I Fertilise: Spring

Pest Control:

0ccasionally i have seen leaf miner and i simply removed the affected leaves.  I remove most orchard butterfly caterpillars, leaving one or two for interest.  Rabbit mesh kept the rabbit at bay.  Scale is removed by hand.

Question:

If I plant other varieties of satsuma mandarins or other citrus, will i get seeds in my mandarins?
