Panama Berry (Seedling) 9/10

Ant751's Edible Fruits
Update: 69 days 0hrs

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.

Btw , Panama berry if full of tiny minuscule seeds , seeds are the slight grit in the berry . Can grow from seeds or cutting ( and runners too ,as you have discovered,).

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot (Grafted) 5/10

DOB's Edible Fruits
Update: 174 days 13hrs

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.

Update: 253 days 2hrs

Make sure you spit out the skin as it can be a bit bitter the seeds inside are very sweet. They do like a lot of water when they are fruiting I think. If you are growing them in a pot them make sure that you keep the water up to them.

During Winter they look prety sick but once spring comes around they green up.

Strawberry - Redlands Joy (Seedling) 5/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 332 days 13hrs

Started with five. Some went into pots, some into the ground. Two in the ground were absolutely decimated by Morning Glory, one in the pots died for unknown reasons. One is going strong in part shade in my front yard and still flowering and producing fruit in the middle of June! One is in a pot and has only ever had one short flowering season. 


Delicious fruit, though. Needs quite a bit of feeding and watering to coax out a good crop in our hot Brisbane weather, though. I'm not going to rip them out, but I have more productive plants in my yard than that.

Raspberry - Heritage (Cutting) 8/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 332 days 15hrs

Comments: -

Tried but DIED.


Actually did okay for quite a while. Grew and fruited in a pot okay, but was water and nutrient hungry in a pot. Moved it to the ground, was doing really well, but was strangled out by invasive Coastal Morning Glory at about the same time we had some wicked summer heat, and it died. I occassionally see a cane pop up in the corner where it was, so I don't know if I can call it truly dead, but the Morning Glory is just too dominant. They get strangled out again.


Was surprised it did alright in Brisbane. I'd like to try again some time, but I'm not in a hurry because the fruit wasn't that spectacular. I much prefer mulberries and panama berries anyway. I think I'd prefer to find things that are more prolific and tasty.


Really liked rich soil and water. Both in short supply in my very dry, hot, baked clay yard. And doesn't like competition from viciously invasive weeds.

Tried but DIED.


I had three of these. All of them are gone now.


They were in a layered bed, with lots of lovely broken down composted material, and I mulched them with pine needles collected locally. 


At first, they did well. One up and died within a few weeks, though, and the others lasted a few years. But they were spindly, water hungry all the time, and the fruit was nice, but sparce.


The bed kept becoming over run with invasive Coastal Morning Glory, and so they would be strangled and starved of nutrients, and I'd detangle them, and fuss over them, and they've be fine, but they never THRIVED. I have a feeling it was partially the location, but also our climate in Brisbane.


Ended up dying in a week of particularly brutal summer heat. They were not particularly productive, and needed too much water to make them worth it. I'd prefer to pay $5 a punnet every once in a while, then an extra $50 on my water bill. Panama Berries and Mulberries are far tastier anyway!

Panama Berry (Cutting) 10/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 333 days 11hrs

Comments: -

Gosh I love this plant. My pots all go through some unintentional neglect at some stage, so things have got to be able to stand some tough love occasionally. Other than prefering to be in partial shade through summer, this one is easy and fuss free. Can go a few weeks with me forgetting to water it, and still bears beautiful fruit. I'd never tried it before buying it, but it absolutely lived up to its reputation! It is delicious!

If i had to describe the flavour... it's like a lot of people say. Sort of burnt caramel/popcorn. It's most definitely a sweet fruit, but the after taste reminds me of tomato. It's not the least like a tomato or at all acidic like a tomato, though. They're difficult to explain, but super tasty!!

It doesn't get a lot of fertiliser- I just do the compost top up and maybe a bit of whatever else I have once a year while doing some of the other pots, and it is mulched thickly, and underplanted with salvias and parsley. It gets water when I remember, and I move the pot into full sun in the cooler months so I continue to get fruit, and back into part shade in summer. Other than that, sweet fruits all year round! 

Definitely one of my favourites for fuss free pot growing in hot, humid, dry Brisbane!

Dwarf Mulberry - Black (Seedling) 10/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 333 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Location: RUNCORN Brisbane Southside. Very hot backyard on a concrete slab.

2018: Autumn here, and I adore my mulberries. I have a few, now, and really, the bigger the pot, the better they do. I can force a dormant state in winter if I keep them tucked up under the eaves on the East side of the house from the start of Autumn, but I can kick start a new season of fruiting simply by moving one out into the middle of the yard. I adore the fruit, and it never fails to be tasty, no matter how I treat it. I've been told I need to prune them after they've finished fruiting to get a bigger harvest, so I've done that this year, and the one that had to be moved to clean the eaves has already come out in fruit, in the middle of June! Bloody lovely, and we fight over them when they're bearing.

Unfussy customers, don't mind the heat too much if I give them part shade (shade from 2pm) and don't even care much if I don't water them often. One got totally forgotten about tucked under the eaves with no rain or water for 2 months over summer and did fine with part shade in a 65L pot. I keep them thickly mulched with sugar cane and underplant around the edge of the pot with salvias and parsley, with the occasional lettuce or pak choy shoved in there.

Easy care, fruits well regardless of the attention given it, produces fuss free in one of the hottest, dryest parts of Brisbane, while in a POT, and is delicious- an absolute favourite of our garden.


2016: Recieved as a christmas pressie 2015. Repotted to a 65L pot late January, with cheap bunnings compost, 1/3 bag of cow poo, a block of coir (soaked in a bucket of water with seasol and mollasses), a handful of organic dynamic lifter for veg, a handful of blood and bone, a sprinkle of lime, and a handful of a rose fertiliser called 'Black Marvel' that I bought on a whim that I find does well with fruit trees- it's high potash.


I should not have waited so long to repot. It struggled in the hot summer here, in it's standard little pot, which I knew it would, since I have managed to kill a few before. It took off really well after repotting- I think mulberries need a larger pot if you aren't going to stick them in the ground, because they will die very quickly if they dry out or overheat. Mine has absolutely exploded with growth, though, since I started popping a half a litre of water from our little table-top pond in there every week. We have fishies, so the water is rich with nutrients.


Besides that, I generally leave it to recieve rain water, or toss a half a litre of water on it near the root zone every other day, with a deeper soak weekly. I expect to water more often in dryer or hotter weather. The pot is also shielded from the sun by another pot in front, but the soil and plant recieve about 4-6 hours morning sun, and completely in shade of the house by afternoon.


I have underplanted it with strawberries, garlic, and garlic chives, and I plan to pop some spinach or sorrel in there, too, now that it has cooled for Autumn. Although I have had a few massive Citrus Swallowtail Butterflies hovering about it, I have no caterpillars on it yet. Fruit flies (both the bigger, fly looking ones, as well as the little mite hovering things) tend to hang about and sit on the leaves for some reason, though that seems to be lessening since I planted the garlic cloves and chives. I plan to hang yellow sticky fruit fly traps this Spring, as I have had an infestation of Citrus Gall Wasp in my lemon and limes this last year. We shall see how that goes.


I know that Mulberries are supposed to be deciduous, but in my part of Brisbane, I have never seen them do much more than thin down a bit. Certainly, mine has lost maybe a dozen leaves -two or three at a time yellowing and falling off- but it just seems to bush out furthur despite the cooling weather. I've been told that I will not get fruit this year, because I have put it in a big enough pot that it will focus on leaf growth rather than fruit, but I cannot really see that as a bad thing (the more growth it has, the more likely it is to survive Summer 2016!) and I cannot confirm this anyway. We'll see how it goes.


Really happy with it so far. I've actually had a hell of a time with all my citrus, so I'm looking forward to watching something be actually productive and healthy in my hotbox of a rental yard.
