Blueberry - Sunshine Blue (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 19 days 6hrs

Comments: - These have grown exceptionally well - I purchased in 2016 and have had in a pot since.  Last year was an absolute bumper crop - we were eating blueberries for what felt like forever and had plenty to share around.  This year (2019) we had a few days of really hot days and drying winds and they both appeared to collapse.  A hell of a lot of water later and cutting back some of the dead canes has rejuventated them and one is even flowering now (late December 2019).  Will see how they recover but before this year, have been incredible bearers of high quality fruit, much tasteier than those found in supermarkets.

Cape Gooseberry 7/10

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 24 days 14hrs

Comments: - Easy grow and quick to get fruit. Old fashioned fruit; my grandma had them growing next to her outdoor toilet 50 years ago! I grew mine from seed I bought online. Some of the plants produced poor tasting fruits and others had good tasting fruits, so I just left one or two good ones. Self-seeds a lot. Tasty to add a few into a fruit salad. Usually the ones that have fallen off and laid on the ground for a few days are the tastiest.  But all cape gooseberry plants I've sampled have a rather acid taste, so I don't think you can eat a cup full without getting a belly ache. I've grown it in Perth and Sydney. I find the plant to be short-lived, at least in Sydney's clay and humid weather, where it grows a lot of foliage but fruit seldom seem to get adequately ripe. Mine did better in Perth's hot, arid summers and sandy soil where there was less foliage but better fruit - ie a bit of watering and mainly neglect seemed to work well. In Sydney after a year or two it looks sick so I pull it out. Always more self seeds coming up though, so just let a new one grow. Never had one damaged by Med fly or Qld fruitfly.

Blueberry Burst (Cutting) 8/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Still too young to really comment too much yet. Only purchased about 2 months ago. 

It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted this smaller variety in a 50cm pot and made the medium as I do for all the blueberries. BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat and perlite (with some more pine bark mixed through) with a good thick layer of small pine bark on top.

Blueberry - Biloxi (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Had some nice blueberries off the Biloxi, not as big as the Misty,  though it's still very young. I've started to (with all my blueberries) remove the flowers and concentrate more on plant growth. I've pruned several weeks ago and already there is new growth. It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind which I am prone to do  :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE: What a little beauty the Biloxi has turned into! Fruiting like a champion and just beautiful. Got about 3kg off this so far and it's still full of fruit. Just finished completely netting the Blueberries today as birds are becoming a real pest!

About 1 metre high now and getting quite bushy. I pruned really well last season before I transplanted from the raised garden beds to the planter bag and its never looked back. Feeding with an organic acid loving slow release fertilser and a Seasol tonic monthly. Watering about every 2nd day (except in this heatwave, it's been most days) and less in Winter. Still in the planter bag and going great guns. I do have many beneficial pollinators for the Biloxi in close proximity which has probably played a significant role in the higher yield.

Blueberry - Gulfcoast (Cutting) 10/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Still too young to really make any comment on it but seems to be growing well. Got new little shoots on it so it must be happy. 

I water virtually daily depending on weather. I planted in planter bags and raised garden beds with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, perlite and some pine bark mixed through the main medium mix and a really good thick layer of "small" pine bark on the top. 

I have 5 berries in the raised garden beds but am about to repot to planter bags as its easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind :)

5/12/16 - UPDATE:  About 1m high now and growing beautifully. Blueberries are HUGE and taste beautiful! Most are the size of 10c piece. I've just completely netted the Blueberries today as a variety of birds are becoming a real pest! Can't blame them I suppose.

Can't wait to see what this little beauty brings on next season as it matures. My Biloxi (3yr old) produced about 3kg this year and the Blueberries arent as huge as this Gulfcoast.....good times ahead :)

I do have many other beneficial pollinators in very close proximity to the Gulfcoast. 

Feeding with an organic acid loving slow realease fertilser and a Seasol tonic about monthly and water about every 2nd day (most days lately in this heatwave) depending on weather...less in Winter of course.

Blueberry - Powderblue (Cutting) 5/10

Homegrownsbest's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Way too young to comment on the plant itself yet. Purcahsed mainly as a pollinator for my 2 Blueberry Britewell. It's getting a bit of a beating from the sun at present as you can probably see in the leaves.

It's currently in full sun (I'm in Ipswich Qld so some fearce summer days) which I'm finding for most of my blueberries the 13 hours a day full sun is just too much to bare so I'm in the process of building a frame to net to assist with some relief from that afternoon sun (and birds of course when fruiting). So I'll see what happens over the coming months.

I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then equal amounts of peat moss, coir peat, and perlite and a really good thick layer of small pine bark on the top. 

Planting in pots and planter bags I just find it easier to maintain PH levels, water, feed and relocate if needed to meet different weather conditions, or if you just change your mind on location, which Im prone to do :)

Planter bags I found really reasonably priced at a plcae on the Gold Coast and they do deliver. 

Havent done much fertilising on the Powderblue as yet but tend to use rose, gardenia and azalea slow release (high acidity), coffee grounds and organic pellets.

Raspberry - Atherton (Cutting) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 125 days 5hrs

Comments: -

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2019

Had my first Atherton raspberry - fruit was delicious, larger than European raspberry and I think actually better. Fruit looked glorious in the sun, almost a metallic sheen to it which was very pretty, but also did not seem to be attractive to the birds around here. Very happy with this, highly recommended.

INITIAL

Had never heard of a native raspberry so looking forward to it fruiting and sampling the fruit's taste. Has been pretty vigourous in the cane berry patch but placed in the centre so the chances of it escaping are reduced (thanks for the heads up!)

Mexican Blueberry - Fuchsia blutini

Linton's Edible Fruits
Update: 139 days 15hrs

Comments: -

Fuchsia Blutini Mexican Blueberry

Fuchsia arborescens x paniculata


Just bought a couple of these Fuchsia hybrids (Fuchsia Arborea BluTini) to see how they go. They are currently just starting to flower and by the end of Summer they should have produced profuse clusters of sweet edible round berries that look like blueberries. They are quite unlike any other Fuchsias and this variety has a PBR license so you are not allowed to propagate them yourself. Should be perfect for growing in pots on the balcony.

Kiwiberry - Mt Tomah Red (Cutting)

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 144 days 5hrs

Comments: - This is a female variety of a red kiwiberry. Will need a pollinator. Not sure whether the Issai variety can provide pollination or whether will need a male kiwi fruit plant for this purpose. If my seedling grown plants are male, they might be suitable. Yet to see.
