Slow to fruit, my other jackfruit seedling has fruited this year after only 3 years in the ground. Only 5 fruit at first fruit set in 6 years, severe fruit splitting and botrytis rot. Topped the tree in 2016 at about 2 metres leaving one branch.  Regrew very quickly but not flowers yet.

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

Loquat - Seedling (Seedling) 8/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 392 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Purchased from Daley's, and I love how fast it was delivered, as well as how well it was packaged. I love the clear seedling tubes!! My posty lady was very careful with it. I think it's brilliant, making the packaging clear so the delivery peeps are a bit more careful.

I waited a bit too long to repot I think. I popped it my bathroom for a few days, in the window, because we were having a very hot week, and I didn't want it to die, as so many things do on entering my hotbox urban rental yard (Brisbane Southside!). When it went outside a week later, I promptly forgot about it for another week, while the poor thing was sitting in a tubestock pot!!

So when I repotted it, it had lost two of the seven lovely healthy leaves it came with. I repotted it immediately into a huge 70 L pot I had, with lots of compost and some coir soaked in mollasses and seasol to help it retain some moisture in the last of the Summer heat. I also threw in some blood and bone, and a handul of dynamic lifter pellets. 

It lost another leaf after that, and then just... sat there. It wasn't dying, but it wasn't living, either. Since then, in the available soil around it, I've put two different succulents in, a rose cutting, and my son's bean plants he grew at school. And they ALL just sat there for a while, doing nothing.

Despite it being the middle of winter, and cold, and dismal and cloudy and rainy, suddenly, I have new growth on the loquat! And the two succulents I thought were going to die are looking good, and the beans are actually flowering. Sadly, I did not remove enough of the skin of the half a potato I stuck the rose cutting in, so I have had a massive potato plant shoot out the side, and I had to remove that (and repot it once I saw all the baby potatoes growing off the roots!). I am quite surprised at its sudden growth, and once looking at it, despite it having only the four leaves it started with, I am startled to realise it is actually taller. Quite a hardy little thing after all!

I think I'm a few years off a harvest, but I'm hoping that it will be a good grower once the warmer weather sets in. The plan is for dynamic lifter and seasol once spring rolls around. No pests have touched it, despite the persistance of mealy bugs, grasshoppers, fruit fly and aphids all through winter this year. I'm hoping it will be hardy enough to grow to shade my bedroom window this summer!

Lychee - Bosworth 3 2/10

Anonymous's Edible Fruits
Update: 1332 days 14hrs

Water Given in: Summer

Pruned By: 50% in After Fruiting

Question: When we purchased the property there was a mature lychee in the backyard.  There have been problems with erinose mite.  The last time it fruited, we were able to pick from the lower branches, but the upper ones were attacked by bats.  We got an arborist to prune the tree and I wanted the top lopped off, but he pruned it back into a rounded shape.  He said lopping the top would killl the tree.  It has now leafed out and fruited with all the fruit out of reach.  We have bats at night and rainbow lorikeets during the day. My poor hubby picks buckets of fallen fruit which I have been composting.  I now think this might be a bad idea as we seem to have flies.  They are bigger than the little flies you get when over ripe fruit sits on the counter.  They actually look like little cockroaches - brown with a black stripe. 2cm long.  We live in Mossman Queensland.  I would appreciate any advice on where to go from here.  The back garden is awful at the moment with all these little flies, and we have a fruit tree that we get no fruit from..
