Drumstick Tree ( Moringa ) (Seedling) 7/10

Jane16's Edible Fruits
Update: 29 days 5hrs

Comments: -

When it arrived we had unusually bad weather in Sydney, a heat wave of 43C which lasted for several days. The bottom branch and all the leaves were yellow when it came. I transferred it to a pot, blood and bone with some rock dust with 100% organic compost. I moved it to my verandah. It received filtered sunlight, ~6hours, and full sun 2- hours. Daily watering. The weather turned and it became unusually cold and windy but I continued my daily watering. During this time, the branches became more yellow. In total 4 branches with all the leaves changed color and fell off. More than half the plant was like this and I thought it would die. The weather then heated up to ~40C again and I moved it to less direct sunlight, now ~2hours. The new foliage is now green and it appears happy, after ~3weeks of purchase. I am not sure when at the beginning it was dying. ? Too much fertiliser - I might have given too much blood and bone ? Overwatering ? Underwatering ? Transfer shock. It was very hit and miss, I thought the plant would die. I was surprised because for some reason I thought this would be an easy plant to grow, but I have since read other ppl's accounts (experienced gardeners) who have said this is a tricky plant to grow. Something else I noticed is that it seems to have a very shallow root system, so at least in the young stages it probably won't tolerate heat well.

It was thriving and getting quite tall so I repotted it. Unfortunately I accidentally damaged most of the root(!), they're very small. I couldn't see any big tap roots. It's now with organic cow manure as a top up and some Powerfeed. The new location receives ~4hours of full sunlight daily. **Something I noticed even before I repotted - this plant really likes water. I had kept it with figs, brazilian cherry, coffee and jaboticaba - and this plant would soak up all the left over water in the bottom water tray daily. It drinks more water than those other plants.

Coffee K7 (Seedling) 7/10

Lynden's Edible Fruits
Update: 29 days 9hrs

Planted: 2018

Height 30 Centimetres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 6

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Question: I have just planted my six K7 coffee trees in the last 10 days. It has been hot and dry  and windy at Stokers Siding but I've been watering and the trees are reasonably protected from wind. The tops of some of the leaves are an orangy-brown while the underside is still green. Any ideas? Maybe just a bit of transplant shock?

I've only had mine (x2) for a few weeks so limited experience but so far I've had it in ~6hours filtered light, ~2hours direct sunlight only and it seems to be doing ok. We've had a heat wave in Sydney and it's fine so far. Yours might be in too much sun.
Lynden says... [28 days 11hrs ago]
Cheers for that Jane. Yes they are getting a bit more sun than yours but not full sun and I'll keep my fingers crossed as only a few leaves are affected. I understand as they increase in size they become more sun tolerant.

Orange - Cara Cara (Grafted) 9/10

Stevieee1's Edible Fruits
Update: 48 days 8hrs

Planted: 2018

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Organic Status:Organic

Question: The Cara Cara is not strictly a blood orange. True blood oranges like the Tarocco and Arnold have anthocyanin pigments that give them their colour. Anthocyanins are the same nutritious pigments that give many fruits (blueberries mulberries etc) their dark colouring. The pigment that gives the Cara Cara it's colouring is lycopene which is the same pigment found in tomatoes and watermelon. Both pigments are very important in the human diet so I suggest getting both a blood orange and a Cara Cara.

Brazilian Cherry - Black Beauty (Grafted) 5/10

Farouk's Edible Fruits
Update: 94 days 11hrs

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.

Question: How can I help it flourish? Its been losing leaves since I bought it. I repotted it in a azelea, compost perliet and sand mix, which stopped the loss for the rest of Winter, but now the leaves are browning at the edges. In a few months it will be dead if no new leaves grow. I've now covered it with a plastic box to raise the humidity above Sydney's humid normal.

Henry's Edible Fruits

Very slow to establish.  Hope to see better growth this year.  Purchased from Daleys.

October 2009:  No growth activity, and no, the plant is not dead.  Applied a handful of dynamic lifter.

November 2009:  Cannot see any growth activity.  Continued with twice weekly watering and weekly inspection for pests/diseases. 

December 2009 to January 2010:  Not much growth activity recorded. 

February 2010:  Can see some growth activity this month.  The plant has grown about 5cm taller and carries newer and bigger leaves.  

October 2012:  The plant is much bigger now and looks healthy.  The speed of growth was noticeable in late 2011 and today stands at approx 70cm tall.  Has started flowering.

I have three plants growing at the moment trained as espaliers. One is trained as an informal, the second one is simple horizontal and the last one is a variation of the simple horizontal. It's my way of expressing myself.

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

Maxzoo's Edible Fruits
Update: 157 days 12hrs

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..)

Grumichama - Black (Seedling)

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 182 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Looks good.

Update - Oct 2013

I increased the shade  because leaves had become rather yellow. (increased shade by planting a papaya to the north of it). Looking a bit better now, and finally starting to grow.

In 2012 I planted a total of 3 grumichamas, all in medium to full sun. This seems to have made the folliage rather yellow. Growth rate - very slow.

Update - Apr2016

I finally got a few flowers on one of my grumis last year, (but no fruit)

Update - Aug 2017 - One finally fruited, somewhat out of season in April 2017. About 15 little fruit, very pretty and quite tasty. The other two are still a bit yellow-leaved though.
