My Edible Fruit Trees: Asian Trees

Many of us are familiar with the lychee because they are easy to grow commercially but there are so many other asian fruits which are great tasting that you may only experience from the local growers below.

Jakfruit - Brinsmead Special (Grafted)

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 15hrs1mins

Comments: -

Wanted to try a crisp grafted variety from Daleys, seeing that our own seedlings were doing quite well in Sydney.

During several days of rain in 2019, the bottom of the trunk got attacked by a white powdery fungus, so the tree is not growing well at present. Painted this area with copper fungicide to try and save the tree.

Lychee - Bosworth 3 (Cutting) 10/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 15hrs14mins

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.

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. We have

Jakfruit - Seedling 9/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 15hrs16mins

Comments: -

Jakfruit tastes great but is rather expensive to buy in Sydney, so decided to try growing it. The tree likes plenty of water, but we don't have a suitable location so it took a while of TLC to get the tree to grow large enough to start producing fruit. We found that the tree initially produced many male fruits (smooth skin) which go mouldy and drop off, and it took a long time before we got the first female fruit (rougher skin) - took about 13 years. The fruit grew well and to a large size. Unfortunately, it ripened and dropped to the ground during our 2-week absence on holidays so we didn't get to taste it.

But with the warming climate, we are now getting more fruits forming and in 2019 we had a crop of 3 jackfruits to full maturity. 

By the way, none of the fruit books talk about the male and female fruits, so this is from our experience.

Loquat - Nagasakiwase (Grafted) 8/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 15hrs23mins

Comments: - The fruit is rather small but the seeds are also small. Good taste. Have moved the tree to Katoomba where it continued to grow well and produced very tasty fruit. Coddling moth was a serious problem in Sydney but have not had this issue in Katoomba so far. The tree is now doing very well, no transplant shock, and has produced good fruit.

Kimseman1's Edible Fruits
Update: 53 days 10hrs

Comments: -

Fruit tastes fantastic, fruited after less than 2 years (in Sydney).  It's in a pot for now but will eventually need to be planted out.  I feed it every month or 2, with something different from last time, eg. organic citrus fertiliser, blood & bone, rock dust, worm juice etc

Wampee - Yeem Pay 10/10

Kenlovell1's Edible Fruits
Update: 103 days 11hrs

Comments: - A very handsome tree that is now growing quite quickly after a slow start. It had its first fruit last year - a small crop but delicious if left until very ripe. The fruit fly left them alone too, which was a pleasant surprise. The tree currently has a lot of early flower shoots and I'm looking forward to a good crop this year.

Longan - Seedling (Seedling) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 214 days 4hrs

Comments: - This tree is now about 10yrs old and still hasn't had fruit yet. It got it's very first flowers this summer, only a very few, but maybe next year it will get started properly. I think this selection might be chill-sensitive as it get's the winter yellows - which disappear once the weather warms up again in Spring.
This tree was relocated from up north, with us, and has been planted here since 2012.

Planted: 2008

Height 5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced organic Acid lovers, sometimes inorganic acid lovers, alternating with slow release organic chook pellets. Little and often. Suphur in early spring and iron sulphate - when pH indicates.

Longan - Chompoo 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 215 days 5hrs

Comments: - Marcotted so it starts fruiting straight away. I pruned the fruitlets off for the first year, left some for the scond year - but I probably should just let the tree focus on growing instead. It seems a bit less fussy than the Kohala when it comes to the bore water and rarely gets chlorosis. It might be a varietal difference, or not.

Wampee (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 215 days 16hrs

Comments: - I love the Guy Sam fruits - they are so moreish. Have had trouble getting the Yeem Pay to grow here. I have several seedling plants now, to see what they produce. If the Guy Sam fruits were bigger they could be so popular. 
Weighting the branches down inceases flowering, like it does for apples. They also need any alkalinity managed and prefer slightly acidic and organic rich soils. 
A nice looking large bush here, bees love the flowers. Likes regular watering. 
Our two 10yr old trees were relocated from 700km north and handled this well. I recently lost one of these - I don't know why at this stage. It died quite suddenly.

Lychee Tai So 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 216 days 15hrs

Comments: - Marcotted. Only very small as yet. Doesn't like the lime in our bore water so has to managed the same as the Kwai Mai Pink we have. Tai So is reputed to be a more heat tolerant variety than Kwai Mai Pink - for Perth. It will be interesting to see how it performs in my slightly colder and wetter winters here. I am hoping that cross-pollination will improve fruit set for both lychees.

Lychee Kwai Mai Pink (Grafted) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 216 days 15hrs

Comments: - Previously known as Bosworth 3. A compact tree here and has been quite challenging to get to fruit. It doesn't like the lime in our bore water so I have to use acidifying fertilisers to keep it green and happy. I can become a little chlorotic in our winters - so is perhaps chill-sensitive. Is very recalitrant to flower and fruit. Had no flowers this season due to a boron insufficiency, for eg.
I am hoping it will improve as it matures. When I do get fruit it is delicious of course.I have planted Tai So nearby in the hope that cross pollination might also help.
This tree was dug up 7yrs ago and relocated from Geraldton, so it is 10yrs old now.

Lychee - Wai Chee (Cutting) 7/10

Weasel1's Edible Fruits
Update: 225 days 14hrs

Comments: -

Planted in October 2018.

Very slow growing.  Has a burst of new growth every 6-8 weeks, which then firms up before the next burst.  Some leaves have been chopped or dropped off.

Very pretty little tree.


Fertilised with Scotts Organic Fruit and Citrus in Jan and April.

Seasol every month or so.

I added some lychee skins as mulch and have noticed a seedling (from a store bought lychee) has sprung up in the pot also.
