Rosella (Seedling) 10/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 16 days 1hrs

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

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 24 days 0hrs

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.

Panama Berry (Seedling) 9/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 105 days 23hrs

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.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot (Grafted) 5/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 211 days 12hrs

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

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 217 days 18hrs

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 ?

Rhubarb - Sydney Crimson 10/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits

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.

Finger Lime - Red Cutting (Grafted) 9/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 370 days 11hrs

Comments: -

2018: I bloody hate this thing, and if it wasn't a gift with a story, I would let the bloody thing die.

I was told this was the citrus to grow in Australia, as it is hardier than most introduced species and likes our heat better, and to that, I call horse sh*t. This thing is the fussiest, sulkiest, most ridiculous WASTE OF TIME of a tree.

It becomes infested with aphids or mites at the blink of an eye, collapses at the very first sign of heat, and is very prone to root rot in winter (root rot in Brisbane- what?). It dies right back through summer, then starts to grow in Autumn, will be coming along nicely, and then BAM, root rot. I've started to get the feel for when to stop watering it, but ugh, it's a stupid fussy thing that I would dearly like to take the choppers to. 

Never had fruit, it's a pitiful little thing that never gets any bigger, even in my most shaded spot (only 5 hours sun a day in summer!), with the pot itself protected from direct light, thick mulch, good soil, a nice bucket of water- it HATES Brisbane heat. It is most definitely a rainforest understory tree from NSW. My dry humidity is no good.

It does, however, like to be underplanted, and that does help with keeping the surrounding soil moist and free of ants, and stops its roots rotting- the other plants suck up the moisture, I suppose.

The only reason I have persisted with this stupid thing is that the thorny bush sits in front of an unused sliding door, and to move it means risking the massive thorns. I've never been scratched, but every single tradie that has come to do things at our house has been scratched like crazy, so I call it my living security screen. 

2016: Mine is on a rootstock Cox. Recieved as a gift Christmas 2015, didn't repot until January 2016. Seemed fine sitting in the pot it came in, but absolutely exploded with growth once I got it into the new pot- which I am still not sure if that was the size of the container it is now in (70 L) or what it was potted into. I used cheapy bunnings compost, cow poo, a block of coir soaked in seasol and mollasses, a hand full of dynamic lifter, and a smidge of lime. I'm told they don't like very rich soil, but mine has thrived in the mix.

Another thing I have found is that despite everything saying full sun for these guys, mine did NOT like the full sun in my hot, concreted suburban backyard. Instead, I have moved it to a spot that only gets perhaps two to three hours of morning summer sun before it is in shade by 11, and it did a whole lot better there. The sun was scorching the new growth right off, and the leaves were all turning yellow. It is happy and bushy now in more shade, even with very little sun in the midst of winter at the moment. I have it underplanted with an english spinach plant, bok choy, a whole whack of johnny jump-ups, and a succulent as living mulch, and there is a butter bean vine planted in the back of the pot, and it seems to tolerate living with these really well. There is a Salvia in there as well, but it is not doing great in so much shade, so I shall be digging that out soon.

It IS a very spiky plant, though I have never been scratched by it. A little care is needed, but my kids know to be careful, and nobody has been bitten yet!! I have it placed by my front gate, in front of my glass sliding door. We don't use the door as a door, so it is a good security measure, lols.

My biggest problem with the Finger Lime has been ants and APHIDS. The ants persist in wanting to nest underneath the Finger Lime, so I have to flood the pot every few weeks to drive them out again. This has become less of an issue since I underplanted the tree with flowers, etc, as I think the additional root systems around the edge of the pot are keeping the soil more moist than they like. I shall see how this progresses. But they do herd the bloody APHIDS around the tree. Despite wanting to keep my yard as chemical free as possible, I have had to resort to chem aids to rid my poor Lime of the aphids. They tuck into the delicate new growth where I cannot reach them, and so I have had to spray every two-three days for the last four weeks to rid myself of them. The ants will herd them to unsprayed foliage, as well, so you must spray the entire plant if you have aphids, or they will simply reappear elsewhere a few days later. Very annoying.

I was told that I would not get fruit until the tree was at LEAST three years old, but many others seem to have fruit much earlier than that, so I shall see this summer, I suppose.

My four Davidson Plums were amongst a host of other fruiting trees received from Daleys, when all except for the Davidsons Plums survived, where all the rest are doing really good.. Planted out the DPlums on the full moon, in a deep hole(even though the DPlums were only 150mm high) prepared the soil with light dressing of dynamic lifter mixed in with auger, then mulched with dry grass/hay.. Maybe the DPlums don't like the treated water of our town, or the amount of water we gave them, every other tree planted on the same day is doing really well, the minature Yellow Guava already has fruit of 10 - 15 mm, the New Guinea Custard Apple has grown about 300mm. Any advice on the Davidson Plum problem would be good to receive.. They are planted in a sloping area with full sun from 10Am thru 2-3Pm, soil is rocky, with friable soil to 400mm, then clay for approx 600mm..

This is in the back corner of the garden . Macadamia 741 is supposed to be able to be heavily pruned . Thats why i bought that variety . 

Because this is an Australian rainforest tree it needs a fertiliser with very little phosphorous . Less that 3% is good . Load the tree up with mulch , and because it is a rainforest tree it doesn't matter if the mulch is right up against the trunk . All plants need sun to grow including rainforest plants . When planting pretend its a rose and cultivate the soil well before planting . They have timid roots so needs a big loosened area to grow well . Excellent drainage in full sun .

   Planted in a raised bed with full sun in late Jan 2017 (Gold Coast). Broke dormancy in late August, and produced eight attractive pink flowers. I allowed these to form small pea-sized fruit, then removed so the tree could put all its energy into establishing a strong root structure. The raised bed has a thick layer of cane mulch (about 150mm).

   I fertilize with varying ratios and amounts of Dynamic LIfter or Rooster Booster, sulphate of potash and blood and bone at the beginning of spring, summer and autumn. I also give fortnightly foliar sprays of a diluted solution of Seasol, Powerfeed for flowers and fruit, soluble sulphate of potash, and Epsom salts during the non-dormant months.

   I use a moisture meter, and water the tree as necessary.

   In the past year (to Jan 2018) the tree has grown really well (about 850mm tall), and this year I'll let it develop a few fruit for us to taste. I'll give it a bit of a haircut during winter when dormant.
