Dwarf Mandarin - Imperial 9/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 95 days 12hrs

Comments: - Espaliered. Did not fruit until 3rd year of planting (I assume it was establishing itself). One dwarf is not enough in long run if there are two or more people in household who like mandarins. Have heard it can produce lower harvest bi-yearly but not seen that happen yet.

Dwarf Custard Apple - Tropic Sun (Grafted) 10/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 95 days 12hrs

Comments: - Espaliered, looks awesome - took well to this and friends have commented. Love the fruit, not gritty/grainy like some other custard apples and small seeds too. No need to hand pollinate. Downside is that all of the fruit comes at once, quickly over a month from mid-feb to march in Brisbane. Must bag/net to protect from fruit fly - unripe fruit drops leading up to harvest as a natural thinning method so I bag by Feb and find fruit only start to get stung two weeks after the very first fruit drops. I harvest fruit to freeze the pulp to use later. Amazing with vanilla ice cream. I took a gamble with limited info online when I got this tree - it is a winner!!! I don't know why someone could not like the taste.

Dwarf Apple - Tropic Sweet (Grafted) 8/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 95 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Espaliered, pretty flowers at front entrance with dwarf golden dorsett and nashi pear. Good snack sized fruit within six months of purchase. Must bag/net to protect from fruit fly... best time to harvest is when fruit drops into bag. I bag fruit when slightly larger than my thumb as some fruit drops before then, as prior to that it is too easy to damage tieing the bag on and you need to do your thinning. Won mother-in-law over so got her a tree for christmas. So much nicer tasting than store-bought fruit. I want an Anna tree one day too.

Most interested in seeing the multiple crops happen throughout the year...

Too early to comment as only planted a few months ago. Facing north-east with house shading tree from hot western sun in summer. Planted half in the ground and on half mound, built up soil bed to increase drainage as have clay soil.

I want to get pinkerton and wurtz to extend the harvest period further. Dwarf/semi dwarf was a must for me.

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.

Dwarf Lemonade (Grafted)

Rusticular's Edible Fruits
Update: 218 days 16hrs

Comments: - Slow growth at first, straggly, fruit turns to orange when ripe but can be eaten green skinned. Closer in flavour to orange than lemon when orange skinned. Straggly untidy tree, probably due to the dwarfing stock. Prone to some kind of brown rust which dessicates the skin, Fuit becomes dry.

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.

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer (Seedling) 8/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 333 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Mine is the 'Lots of Lemons', which I believe is a Meyer variety. Not grafted.

This, with my Tahitan Lime, were Christmas gifts 2014. These poor citrus. Goodness me, they have been through a lot.

For some reason that escapes me, I repotted the Lime, and not the Lemon, and it sat in it's original 25L pot for months in my yard- poor thing. I know I fertilised it, but it never occured to me to repot it. It set flowers the first month, and I had one fruit come in nicely (the possums ate the other flowers and have since not touched them. They prefer everything else in my yard) and then three more fruit a month or two later. I hadn't been told yet to pinch out the fruit the first year to help promote growth of the tree, so I let the fruit grow.

The first lemon was delicious. I have never had such a lovely lemon. You could smell them a few metres away while they were on the tree! Lovely! Seven months for the fruit to be ready, but it was delicious!

Sadly, hubby had borrowed one of my hoses for something, and when he replaced them, the sprinkler was moved, and I wasn't aware. So when I was setting the timer on the sprinklers every morning before running off to school, I never noticed that the lemon was now not getting even a speck of the water, and in the heat we had, it dropped all the developing fruit before I had caught on. It looked dreadful, and I pruned it and moved it, and watered it.

And then had aphids, citrus gall wasp, giant brown caterpillars, leaf miner, and citrus swallowtail catterpillars absolutely decimate the poor thing. Fruit flies everywhere! They were breeding in the soil beneath the tree, even!

I should have just let it die, but I didn't. It went into a huge pot with chook poo and compost and coir soaked in mollasses and seasol, some dynamic lifter pellets and some blood and bone, and some lime. I trimmed off all the galls and anything really dead, and underplanted it with garlic, garlic chives, and marigolds. It has a few lettuce seedlings, and even a few carrots towards the edges now. At first it looked woeful, a stick about 30cm tall with a few leaves on. But it has put on so much new growth since, and in the last six months has reached a half a metre, not much, but more wide than tall now, and very bushy and glossy. No more pests, and it looks healthy. We shall see. 

Mid winter 2016 now, and it looks lovely, even though it gets very little sun with the stupid weather we are having. Everything in the pot is doing well, and I occasionally throw on a few dynamic lifter pellets, and a cupful of fishy pond water or two. I will be guarding against the pests with great prejudice this year, and setting yellow sticky traps to catch as much as possible. This tree will live, so help me it will!

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian (Grafted) 8/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 333 days 12hrs

Comments: -

I recieved my Tahitian Lime and my Lots-of-Lemons as Christmas gifts in 2014. And wow, these things have been put through the ringer.

Any pest capable of getting something from a citrus, has attacked my babies. ARGH!

This was repotted into a large 70 L tub, with Osmocote citrus soil, cheapy bunnings compost, coir soaked in seasol and mollasses, chook manure, dynamic lifter pellets, and some lime. I think I threw in some blood and bone as well. Plant did well in the mix, and bushed out quickly, and set dozens of flowers in the first month.

Which the possums quickly ate. I mean it. Any time I get flowers, they eat the lot. Any that last long enough to turn into itty bitty fruit either get eaten, or knocked off in the possum's haste to eat all the flowers. I have tried covering with netting and weighting it down with bricks, and they shove the bricks away, and climb under!! So far, in two years, I have not had a single fruit. They also eat all the Lemonade flowers, as well as capsicum flowers, and all my strawberries. Dagnabbit.

Since then, I have had citrus miner, citrus gall wasp, giant brown caterpillars, citrus swallowtail butterfly catterpillars, fruit fly, aphids, you name it, they love it. The poor thing has hung on, and I am about to give it a bit of a hair cut, and move it to a better spot, since it is far enough around the back yard that it gets little attention. I think a season of being centre placed for me to baby it will do it good.

I remove most bugs by hand, so this one has never had sprays. I fertilise every other month with dynamic lifter pellets under the sugar cane mulch, and a good dose of seasol when I remember. It also seems to do well with some of the 'black marvel' rose fertiliser every once in a while. I plan to underplant with a few different herbs before spring to try and keep the bug population down, so we shall see how that goes. And yellow sticky cards, to trap any returning gall wasps I have missed!

I am attempting chicken wire cages to deter possums. Here's hoping for fruit Summer 2016!!!
