Black Sapote - Maher (Cutting) 10/10

Andrew26's Edible Fruits
Update: 43 days 3hrs

Comments: - This is the start of my tropical plant growing. The picture shows my 1st, and cheapest  greenhouse - an old fridge with the sides jigsawed out, and replaced with piecess of perspex and glass that I had lying around. At the moment it is a temporary home for black sapotes, coffees, blueberries, dragon fruit, and a pepino - with more on the way. When it gets a little too hot - the thermometer inside shows >=35oC, I crackopen the top door. It is kept warm - around 24oC O/N, even on below zero, frosty nights here in Clare, with a 70W incandescent glope, old quit and a tarp if it is raining. Next GH will be a shuttle with a clear polycarb top, before progressing to a poly tunnel, and finally, a twin walled polycarbonate GH with summer cooling and winter heating.

Macadamia - A16 (Grafted) 1/10

Fiona11's Edible Fruits
Update: 158 days 4hrs

Comments: -

Maybe it is too subtropical to grow in a warm temperate zone.  Maybe it wasn't protected enough

It won't grow in warm temperate - should be listed as tropical / subtropical only

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions

Planted: 2015

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 2

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Question: How far apart should you plant them.  We have two.

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb
Fiona11 says... [152 days 8hrs ago]
Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.

PAWPAW - YELLOW YD1B HYBRID Carica papaya (Seedling) 10/10

Danny N1's Edible Fruits
Update: 587 days 9hrs

Comments: -

Love Papaya Fruit, i am growing other varieties in Adelaide ( Southern Red and recent purchase of a Thai dwarf Torpedo - all purchased from Daley's), but thought i'd give

  the PAWPAW - YELLOW YD1B HYBRID a try as well - going to have Papaya coming out of my ears haha. It is showing strong growth in only 10 eeks! purchased 2 from Daley's hopefully one is male and the other female, would be miffed if they were both the same sex!.

Papaya is in a 430mm pot with rich organics and mulch also the pot has a 30mm layer of volcanic rock which ensures excellent drainage at all times. I have also drilled over a dozen extra holes into the sides and bottom of the pot - potting mix is my own blend that retains moisture so the need to water is just a light sprinkle wit a watering can.

Again the Papaya is living in my semi-enclosed pergola that has clear perspec sheeting allowing filtered light and sheilding from hot winds and cold nights. I have done all i can the rest is up to nature now haha.

Avocado - Hass (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Westy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 623 days 7hrs

Comments: - We purchased this 5ft tree from a local nursery for a good price. We built a large mound to improve drainage (we have clay soils) using a combination of quality soil from under an acacia baileyana, composted chicken poo/straw and a bit of cow manure. We staked it on 3 sides to help protect it from the wind. It is partly shaded from a eucalypt branch overhead. Survived winter frosts without any damage in Adelaide hills. We are on only rainwater so water it by hand once a week at the moment, probably more during its first summer and then it'll mostly be on its own. No flowers yet but shouldn't be long

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel 8/10

Loves Fruit Trees's Edible Fruits
Update: 630 days 7hrs

Comments: -

I've noticed that the branches of my Dwarf Washington Navel has a different formation to the Seedless Valencias. This is interesting because they have a graceful habit it seems. This disturbed me at first but then I remembered how lovely my mother's established Washington Navel looks (20yrs) It has the nicest sweet juicy oranges. It is watered with a slow running hose for an hour each week. This has been her favorite and most successful prize tree - the best she had when she was here in SA. 

Washington Navel is a heavy producer and the Oranges have a superb taste! If however you live in an area with extended weather that is freezing, you may be better going with a summer variety like Valencia Seedless avalable in dwarf variety. You don't want to lose your whole crop if weather conditions are unsuitable (minus Oc) They need about six months above 14c most of the time I found out. I'm about to place some excerpts of Info about Washington Navels on my hobby-site (re About Me) that is really nice and the best YouTube ever, I've found on their interesting history. You'd be amazed. I loved it!

Plumcott - Spring Satin (Grafted) 10/10

Bloodanddreams 's Edible Fruits
Update: 943 days 9hrs

Comments: - I have many fruit trees, but this is the only one my kids rave about. Can taste different depending on the level of coloration inside. More red - more plum like. One fruit year after planting, 50 odd second year. I am hoping for exponential increase. Fruits after Apricot Fireball and before Tropical Beauty Peach. Unbelievably juicy. Eat outside.

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Seaweed, rooster booster, osmocote citrus slow release

When I Fertilise: Spring

Question: Coming from Adelaide we experience hot dry Mediterranean summers. I know that this is an understory plant, so I've kept it in dappled sunlight and watered it regularly. However, some of the leaves have been inexplicably falling off. Will this plant, like my other citrus plants cope well in full sun (will it's grafted rootstock help it fare better in this climate)?

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted)

Bek's Edible Fruits
Update: 1375 days 3hrs

Comments: -

Bought this a few months ago. Hasn't really thrived, planted in a mound in the ground. The leaves have slowly dropped off one by one. The stem is still green though and can see some small buds so fingers crossed it will bounce back. Think it may have gotten baked in the hot sun and water didn't seem to soak into the soil properly so not sure it was getting sufficient water. We have just pulled it up, put it in a large pot and moved it to a more sheltered position to protect it from the harsh afternoon sun. Hopefully it will make it through as I looooove avocados

Growing nicely along. Notice some flowering
NickL1 says... [1766 days 2hrs ago]
Was doing better than the Late Lane but ooks rather pitiful on 20 Nov 2012. Most of the leaves are yellow of have dropped off
NickL1 says... [1662 days 3hrs ago]
Very happy with it. Applied Seasol every two weeks during the summer months and it seems to generate new growth and leaves. Applied blood and bones on dripping line on 1.3.13.
NickL1 says... [1393 days 2hrs ago]
Doing better than the Late Lane. No fruit this year but hopefully in summer of 2014.
NickL1 says... [1079 days 0hrs ago]
Correction, had one fruit in August 14. Was very happy altho the fruit was decidely small compared with those from the supermarket. Nevertheless it was sweet. Like the Late Lane, I am hoping for more fruits altho the tree is small, no more than three feet.
NickL1 says... [721 days 22hrs ago]
After a slow start this tree is truly established. Havent grown much taller but have more branches and leaves. Also started flowering. Hope to eat the first fruit from this tree this year. Have consistently fertilised during winter and spring.
