Are you growing them as a perennial or an annual here in victoria?
tonestar1 says... [121 days 2hrs ago]
on average perennial.....they need lots of dynamic lifter, chook poo, potash and water. You need to time the flowering around Feb with lots of water to produce about 8 hands on the ladies fingers h/w I once got 20 hands on the golden ones..
tonestar1 says... [121 days 1hrs ago]
also they need a full sun and warm place in the garden...a brick wall is ideal
mcmelb1 says... [120 days 4hrs ago]
wow! I thought that it would be too cold in Vic for it to survive winter.

Dwarf Fig - Brown (Cutting) 10/10

Figbarron's Edible Fruits
Update: 167 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I purchased this fig in Late November and planted it in a 300mm pot with a protting mix of 30-30-30% coconut coir, compost and potting mix and mixed with organic fertilizer and some lime. Within 3 weeks it started to produce figs as well as push new growth. I will update on the taste of the figs and and growth behaviour.


UPDATE:

So it has fruited! The fruit is medium size and quite sweet. The tree itself has doubled in height and still growing despite it having fruit on it. Highly recommended!

Dwarf Almond - Self Pollinating Papershell 9/10

Doshepherd1's Edible Fruits
Update: 194 days 6hrs

Comments: -

Very fast grower - it went from a nursery whip to about 4 metres in its first year. I think I would have purchased a whole hedge if I had known. Only a handful of almonds the first fruiting season, but I wasn't expecting any, so it was very exciting to have a real homegrown almond. It's a favourite with my chooks as the branches are quite low and the shade plus protection is good.


Picture is of the first real harvest, with heaps more still on the tree. I wouldn't mind planting more of these.

Planted: 2014

Height 4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Dwarf Persimmon - Ichikikijiro (NA) (Grafted)

Life In A Retirement Village's Edible Fruits
Update: 416 days 5hrs

Comments: - I only recieved it a couple of days ago and planted it out the same day. We live in Baw baw in Gippsland so we get frosts in winter . Spring is very near and I wanted to get it in before the sap  starts to run. I have seen many persimmon fruit in opportunity shops here but they never ripened. I dug a hole twice the depth and width of the pot and put a generous handfull of dynamic lifter beneath the osmocote potting mix I brought to hole up to correct size. It just looks like a twig at the moment. Retirement villages have small back yards so the dwarf seems like agood option for me. I hope it does well.

Planted: 2015

Growing: In the Ground

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Question: I'm not sure how to add comments on the growing process, I thought this had died because the other deciduous trees in my yard leafed up much more quickly  but left it in the ground and the buds are now showing movement.

Coffee - K7 (Seedling) 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 467 days 20hrs

Comments: -

I just love coffee, So why not grow it?

Suprisingly not too difficult to grow in Victoria. Keep them in large pots so you can move them out of the cold. Keep the soil moist. What I usually do with many of my plants, is just wet the soil occasionally, but not actually give them a proper drink - just for the moisture when it looks like it's drying out. I think there is a difference between keeping plants hydrated and watering them (If that makes sense..).

When I first received these seedlings from Daley's, I positioned them in spot with lots of warm sun. Now that they have established themselves a little more, I have found that too much Central Victorian sun will just burn and dry out the leaves. When positioned in the sun for too long, the whole tree goes droopy. So now they only get morning sun and spend the rest of the day in the shade. This seems to work o.k... At night if the temperature drops, I bring them inside into a warm room.

I thought that maybe spraying the leaves would help, but this seems to make the leave grow oddly. It also can rot the leaves, so don't get water on the leaves!

The first pots that I put the trees in actually ended being too small. This stunted the growth. After trasplanting them to larger pots, they're growth has increased remarkably. I am now getting beautiful, large glossy green leaves.

I'm sure the Coffee Trees don't mind the occasional Samba music that gets played around the place too!!!

I hope that I've helped anyone.
