Mandarin - Emperor (Grafted) 7/10

Terrastrega's Edible Fruits
Update: 106 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Just purchased my Emperor Mandarin tree few weeks ago. Its in a pot (38cm diameter & 35cm height). Potting mix is Richgrow rose and citrus potting mix, fertilise with bit of blood and bond and fruit and citrus premium fertiliser, and a dash of potash. I use Tee Tree Mulch but leave about 2 inches unmulched around the trunk of the tree.The nursery advice to water twice a day here on Brisbane, so I have been doing that so far.

It looks healthy and doing well. It gets full sun till about 2 - 3pm each day, after which it gets partial sun. Height of tree from soil line upwards is about 74cm. potting mix and fertiliser and so far all seem healthy.

Late 2013, Update: Tree is still in a big pot although not the dwarf varity. Has plenty of flowers and little fruit forming (Early September). Will be transfering in the ground after fruiting. Had not done so earlier as we were renting but now have bought a house and can start putting my trees in the ground!

June 2014: It is finally in the ground. trimmed it right back and now lots of new growth on it.

Dwarf Kumquat Calamondin (Grafted) 8/10

Terrastrega's Edible Fruits
Update: 106 days 12hrs

Comments: -

My little dwarf Calomondin (I call them calamansi) and fig- Black Genoa tree arrived by post all safe and snug in their box from Daleys yesterday.

Called up Daleys and the lady on the phone (Kathrine I think her name was... sorry I am really bad with names) was very cheerful and helful in answering questions I had regarding my little calomondin. She recommended to pick off any fruit on the tree when it arrives before plabting it to allow the plant to concentrate on growing and establishing. Very nice people to deal with..

2013 Update: This tree is growing very well in its pot and has put out little fruit last year and this year. Plenty of flowers starting to form. Can't wait, this makes a delicious juice drink. Scale and aphids were a minor problem that was treated with pyrethrium and scale spray.

2014: It was a bit neglected and decided to plant it into the ground sometime in April this year. Fertilise with chook manure and blood and bone and seaweed extract and mulch. Tree developed nice new growth. It has lots of little fruit forming on the tree at the moment (Oct).

Orange - Arnold Blood (Grafted) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 229 days 0hrs

Comments: -

Planted November 2015 so too young to be able to review anything yet. It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a 75 litre planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then kind of equal amounts of good quality potty mix, coir peat, perlite and a shovel of organic pellets mixed through.

 A really good layer of small pine bark on top.

Looking forward to trying these :)


Oct 2019 update - It was the first season I let them fruit this winter just gone. Theyre flowering/fruiting again. They were absolutley beautiful! Sweet and juicy and just wow! I cant wait till they get bigger so I get a bigger yield. I recently repotted to their forever home pots, 160 litre pots with a good mix of peat moss, perlite and vermalite.

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Grafted) 9/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 229 days 1hrs

Going great guns! Purchased about April 2015. 

I water almost daily depending on weather and fertlise about every 6 to 8 weeks. When fruiting is over I will be repotting into a 75 litre planter bag as I have with all other citrus and blueberries. 

Seems to be going well as it has about 12-14 fruit on it but it could do with some more room and better quality medium that provides better drainage. I've found that a good mix of pine bark, coir peat and perlite works wonders so the lemon will be getting that too when fruiting is finished as well as a prune.
