Lemons (Grafted) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 20hrs

Comments: - Every back yard needs a lemon tree so there's not much more to say really! We have had problems with the Dwarf range here - due to rootstocks - so I have replanted with full size trees now. We have Lisbon lemon which does great - thorny, but nice lemons. Myer...a mild lemon and Eureka - a proper acidic lemon. 
We have a range of types so that we always have a fresh lemon on hand from the garden - as I use a lot of them in the kitchen. 
They need some help to be happy with our more alkaline conditions here.

Planted: 2012

Height 3 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced Acid lovers, little and often (summer) slow release organic chook manure pellets (a little in winter/when dormant) sulphur in spring, iron sulphate in winter or as required.

Mandarins (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 20hrs

Comments: - I could eat Afourer mandarins all day...they are the best mandarin so far, imho. They are deep orange, juicy, sweet - but still have that lovely mandarin tang, easy to peel and not many seeds. Highly recommend them. We have had major dramas with the new Dwarf and Semi Dwarf rootstocks here - due to the sand and lime in the bore water. It's been incredibly frustrating have to pull out all of the dwarf trees we bought and replace them with full-size rootstock mandarin trees. A couple of the Semi dwarfs are doing ok - but it depends on the scion. My research seems to indicate that there can be problems with Aforurer and some rootstocks for eg.
We have Afourer, Japanese seedless, Ortanique and Clementine. The Japanese seedless is pictured - it has been moved 3 times now and has rebounded surprisingly well. 

Planted: 2015

Height 2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced Acid lovers mostly, sometimes organic slow release chook manure pellets. Little and often. Sulphur in spring, iron sulphate in winter.

Oranges (Grafted) 9/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 21hrs

Comments: - Homegrown oranges taste fantastic and are one of my favourites. We have an Early Spanish Newhall navel (a beautiful tree with lovely fruit - my favourite - and in this picture) a Joppa and a Valencia - to spread out the fruiting season. They are all on full size rootstock as the semi-dwarf and dwarf rootstocks don't perform as well here, with the sands and tendency to alkalinity. All of our citrus get a dressing of sulphur in spring and sometimes iron sulphate during the year/winter, if needed. 
I love citrus and would always have them growing in the garden - and they taste great when homegrown. The trees are so handsome and the blossom smells divine also.

White Sapote - Lemon Gold (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 21hrs

Comments: - Scary tree because it wants to grow into a giant here. That's interesting because it behaved totally differently 700km north of here. Doesn't have any leaf drop here either. Wishing I had planted it somewhere else now, and had to cut down the second tree next to it because they were taking over. The roots are invasive so don't plant near pipes, walls etc...
Apart from that - it's dead easy to grow in our climate, is not at all fussy about the soil, the water, the winter - or bothered by pests/diseases. The fruit needs to bagged against Mediterranean fruit fly and the parrots and possums...
The fruit is beautiful - texture a bit like avocado and the flavour of lemon meringue pie, to me. Skin can be eaten also. 
Self fertile and a good cross pollinator. If only the fruit were bigger and more numerous.
I have to hack this tree back by 50% every 2-3years.

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Any balanced fruit tree fertiliser I have around.

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 1hrs

Comments: - Only planted 2weeks ago. This is a picture of our previous tree. A very heavy bearer of lovely limes. They are seedy but as we juice them it doesn't matter. I am interested to see if it will be able to handle this cooler climate.

Lime - Rangpur 4/10

Dwarf Lemonade 8/10

Evtilda1's Edible Fruits
Update: 102 days 22hrs

Comments: - Would be interesting in growing one of these in a large pot on the deck or in the yard, I don't think I have the room in the yard to provide it with enough light so maybe a half wine barrel might do
