Guava Yellow Cherry 10/10

Branny1's Edible Fruits
Update: 76 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Bought this a few years ago at Green Harvest up at Maleny, and until this last week, I THOUGHT it was the Strawberry Cherry Guava. It is not.

I bought it as a tiny thing, but grew sort of okay once I got it into the pot. Not in a massive pot, 35L I think, but it did okay.

Came out in a weird pattern of red blotches that I couldn't quite match to any photos online to any disease/pest that I researched. Couldn't see anything else wrong but these blotches, so I left it be. It kept growing? Not well, but kept growing.

All of a sudden, September 2018, it put on a mass of growth, most of the red blotches disappeared, it came lush and green and bushy and it flowered! Every flower set fruit (the native and european bees loved them) I have a dozen fruit on it! It's January 2019 now, and they're still green, but the plant is holding well, no fruit drop. It's getting quite a bit of sun, until about 2-3pm, and gets watered every second day. It shares a pot with parsley and a rando violet that popped up, and a lovely red geranium cutting I shoved in that has grown well, and mulched with sugar cane mulch. Just in compost and coir soaked in molasses, seasol and worm wee to get it started. I think I gave it a toss of blood and bone earlier last year? 

Never pruned, never done anything to it, just seemed to really enjoy our cooler, very mediteranean spring we had here last year. Now if the fruit would only ripen so I can try them....

EDIT March 2019, the fruit have began to ripen, and nope, not the strawberry! Definitely the gold/yellow cherry guava, and I can't say I'm disappointed, because it is WONDERFUL. Not in the slightest bit resinous, just really beautifully flavoured. Not overly sweet, not acidic at all, just slightly soft, and a delightful flavour that is sort of part tropical pineapple, part 'apple', part something else I can't pinpoint. Very hard to explain, but I adore them. I let them fall off the plant for the perfect fruit- not too soft, juuuust firm, and very aromatic.I just check it every morning for dropped fruit. Seeds are soft enough to eat the whole thing, skin and all. Good both sun warm and also chilled. AWESOME with vanilla icecream. Despite the flowers setting fruit all at once, the fruit are ripening a few at a time, which is great, as it spreads out the feed. I'm planning to allocate some of my prime pot space to a few more, as I can see myself happily eating these all autumn long for the rest of my life. They also seem to ripen as soon as we get cooler weather, and so I've not seen a single pest near them, so I think these would be great to grow if fruit fly is a problem.  

I've given it just one or two liquid feeds of seasol and liquid fish emulsion plus worm tea and molasses, and one week I added a bit of liquid gypsum so I could do the pumpkin vine nearby as well. Despite very little care the fruit are amazing, and the leaf growth has not suffered at all for it. Plan to top dress with a bit more blood and bone and some rotted sheeps manure at the end of fruiting, with the plan to repot every three or four years.

WARNING: I have since discovered that these are on several city council weed lists, with my own being quite fussy about them, so if fruit bat/possums/fruit eating birds are a problem at your place, net your plants! I'd hate to see them banned from sale because of excessive weed issues, since they are just so good!

Black Sapote - Chocolate (Grafted) 6/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 18hrs

Comments: - Espaliered. Takes a few years of growth before trunk is thick enough for tree to hold fruit. Only one fruit last summer at 4y mark. I see both male and female flowers, female come out later (early november when I spotted this). Rainforest tree, roots do spread in yard in cool/wet/mulched spots so I would be careful to not plant too close to a structure as not sure if roots would expand and damage. Must trim regularly in summer to keep it small. Was told grafted versions grew shorter and less aggressively than seedlings. Hope I get more fruit this year, a pretty waxy leaved plant.

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

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 18hrs

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.

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.
