Lychee - Bosworth 3 (Cutting) 10/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 68 days 11hrs

Comments: - This variety produces large fruit with very good taste and many have small seed. We prune the top after fruiting to keep the size manageable. 

Fruiting Months January

Planted: 1999

Height 3 metres

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 15 kilograms per Year

First Fruited: 8 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pruned By: 10% in

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

Macadamia nut borer is a problem which spoils some of the crop. A thorough spraying with insecticide all over the tree when the fruit is still quite small, including inside the tree to eliminate the moths which harbour there, is very effective.

Ok thanks, looks like Daley's doesn't sell Gold Nugget seedlings anymore, just grafted trees.

how is your jack fruit tree doing now? i was just up in brisbane at my friends property. He had several jackfruit trees and the fruit and tree were big. Would be amazing if you got them to grow and fruit down here
Markmelb says... [307 days 8hrs ago]
Grows real slow here - still alive - no signs yet of flowers.

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 220 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Wonderful, rather complex taste. Fruited after 2 years. All the fruit ripened at the same time (February). Attractive shrub, looks healthy thru the whole year (I'm in Sydney).  But in second season I got no flowers or fruit. Third season got about 70 fruit.

Seedling purchased from Daleys. I planted a few seeds from my first crop and most of them are growing (slowly - 1 year old, just 20cm high), so I suppose that's an easy way to grow them if you're not in a hurry.

Fruiting Months February

Height 1.4 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Pollination: No

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Citrus fertilizer 3 / year

Pest Control:

First crop had no pests, but third season about half had Qld fruit fly. (I'll net next season!)  If it didn't get fruit fly I'd rate it 11 out of 10. Up there with the yummiest! (although not quite up there with good durians...)
