Ice Cream Bean 10/10

Rwan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 45 days 19hrs

Comments: -

This tree has been growing succesfully for three years. It's been in the same pot and has grown into a nice, large tree. It was neglected somewhat for one winter and lost all of its foliage. After this, I pruned it to shape and nursed it through the remaining cold months. It returned with vigorous new growth and is taking off like a champ. The following summer, it flowered and still currently is. Hoping for fruit. Almost getting too big to bring inside through winter.

Hi Inoxa1 Your feijoa won't be in a hurry to grow now where the season is already changing and the growing times is almost over except in the tropics. Expect a lot of growth during spring onwards. I have 3 feijoas bought last spring and they have all more than doubled their sizes. Be patient and take good care of it and you will be rewarded accordingly. Happy gardening :-)

Blueberry - Blue Rose (Seedling) 9/10

BloodPlum1's Edible Fruits
Update: 63 days 19hrs

Comments: -

Update - Just got my first harvest of blueberries! I did lose one to a bird but I quickly netted the plant and protected the rest. The taste of the berries is very subtle with a hint of sweetness and none of the tartness of the store-bought blueberries. 

_______________________________________________________

Previous update - lots of little fruits have started forming all over where the flowers used to be. I applied some acidic fertiliser once the berries stated started to develop. Looking forward to heaps of tasty fruit, provided the birds don't get to them first!

_______________________________________________________

I bought this as a seedling from my local nursery this year. After a number of friends had failed attempts with their blueberry plants, I thought I'd give it a go. I did a lot of research before buying it as I had heard that they can be very fussy plants, but hardy, if they like the conditions they're in.

It is important for the soil to be sufficiently acidic. I potted it in a large 50cm glazed pot, with camellia/azalea potting mix and mixed through peat moss (which is acidic). I mulched with pine needles and every now and again throw on ground coffee which also helps to lower the ph in the soil. It's also important to only water with rainwater as tap water can be quite basic with all the chemicals they add to the water these days. 

So far it seems to be doing well. It has grown quite vigorously even in the short time I have had it. It has dropped all its leaves in the winter. Melbourne has had a particularly cold winter so I'm hoping for a good crop this year!

Update - just last week it started flowering following Melbourne's warmest August days on record! The flowers are stunning as you can see in the photo below. I've got my fingers crossed I get some fruit as the flowers are very sensitive to frost and reports of freezing winter days ahead

Banana - Lady Finger (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 82 days 18hrs

Comments: - Always wanted to try growing bananas, however living almost in the Macedon Ranges just north of Melbourne I thought would make it impossible.  Decided didn't care - my gardening is trial and error, not what people tell me will work. So far, has not only survived a few light frosts, but growing well - in ground with three other banana varieties & worked a heap of compost, sheep manure, dynamic lifter and potash into the soil before planting.  I use an automatic watering system so they get watered and misted every day (for a minute, mind you, nothing over the top).  Will see how they survive the Winter as it's meant to be one of the coldest ahead. Wish me luck!

MatthewT says... [311 days 10hrs ago]
My pot is 38L and I water once a week about 2L. I found the soil is still moist most of the time after mulching. So I just water once a week and make sure water drips from the bottom

Are you growing them as a perennial or an annual here in victoria?
tonestar1 says... [641 days 21hrs 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... [641 days 21hrs ago]
also they need a full sun and warm place in the garden...a brick wall is ideal
mcmelb1 says... [640 days 24hrs 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: 688 days 13hrs

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: 715 days 1hrs

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
