Dwarf Orange - Navelina (Grafted) 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 123 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I tasted one of these in Atherton earlier this year and was most impressed by both the fruit and its flavour

June 2016 I had 1 piece of fruit this year in April. More orange inside than the Washington and amazingly sweet

Dec 2016 This tree is going great guns and it has a nice crop on it. It seems as though it will be slightly ahead of the Washington navel by about 2 weeks as it was last year

April 2017 This year the tree has been heavily hit with gall wasp whilst the other citrus have missed out entirely

How does the taste compare to Washington Navels?
Slicko says... [250 days 23hrs ago]
Hi Swoon, I am of the opinion that it is seeter than the WN, probably better than it. The home grown fruit of both varieties leaves shop bought fruit for dead... Mick

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling) 8/10

InsanityShard's Edible Fruits
Update: 168 days 1hrs

Comments: -

It's right next to a dwarf Red Mulberry but for some reason it's never had fruits to full growth. This year, with high drought was the first time it;s grown fruit but the birds ate them all so I never got to try them. The fruits on this one are long but the ones on my Red Mulberry are very short.

Height 2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

Ants keep eating the fruit off the mulberries, but I don't want to spray them because the birds like them too and I feed them to my budgies.

Soursop ( Graviola ) (Seedling) 9/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 214 days 14hrs

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.

Blue flax-lily (Seedling) 3/10

Garden431's Edible Fruits
Update: 227 days 4hrs

Comments: - I wanted to start to try different edibles in the garden that didn't need their own area but could be incorporated into the bush area garden. In the middle of 40 acres, sandy dry soil, reliant predominately on rain for water, native edibles were the obvious choice. I've eaten the local blue flax-lily but wanted to try the Daleys' variety as I've been told the taste can differ between area variations. It's only just been planted so hoping to try these within the next twelve months. The leaves aren't as course as the local ones so we'll see. The chooks love the local berries. Will get back to you about the taste difference.

Ok thanks, looks like Daley's doesn't sell Gold Nugget seedlings anymore, just grafted trees.

Blueberry - Biloxi (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 284 days 9hrs

Comments: -

Had some nice blueberries off the Biloxi, not as big as the Misty,  though it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned several weeks ago and already there is new growth. It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind which I am prone to do  :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE: What a little beauty the Biloxi has turned into! Fruiting like a champion and just beautiful. Got about 3kg off this so far and it's still full of fruit. Just finished completely netting the Blueberries today as birds are becoming a real pest!

About 1 metre high now and getting quite bushy. I pruned really well last season before I transplanted from the raised garden beds to the planter bag and its never looked back. Feeding with an organic acid loving slow release fertilser and a Seasol tonic monthly. Watering about every 2nd day (except in this heatwave, it's been most days) and less in Winter. Still in the planter bag and going great guns. I do have many beneficial pollinators for the Biloxi in close proximity which has probably played a significant role in the higher yield.

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..

Jimmy2's Edible Fruits
Update: 328 days 18hrs

Comments: -

would love some avos, so i bought a couple of hass and a secendo.  planted march, established but all slowed nearly to a stop over winter. beginning of spring, secendo flowered and is  now flushed with new growth. hass buds beginning to bloom mid spring.

Question:

I have used no pest control. noticed stems and trunks of hass avos with brown blotches, any ideas?  Also new growth on secondo is being eaten by small, long, green insects similar to a praying mantis. Pyrethrum spray says do not use on new growth and i would like a safer option. would a garlic or white oil spray be ok on a secendo?

Macadamia 741 5/10

Glennis1's Edible Fruits
Update: 335 days 3hrs

Comments: -

Height 1 mtr (18/01/2012)

Height 1.5 mts (20/11/2012)

This is in the back corner of the garden . I have a path that goes around it so i will be trying to keep it pruned as a cylinder shape .

Too much shade and competition from next doors massive lychee tree . Macadamia is hardly growing . oct 2013

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 .
