Tamarillo - Orange (Seedling) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 25 days 11hrs

Comments: -

UPDATE MAY 2020

These grow QUICK. Now well over 2m tall, has done extremely well, fruit have formed and almost ready for picking (starting to colour up now).  There would be around 14 full sized fruit on it at the moment, but probably another 30-40 flowers and other sized fruit. Unfortunately aphids seem to adore it, but given how fast it grows and the size of the leaves, I haven't used any controls aside from squishing as I've regularly seen ladybirds on there munching away.  Is relatively protected from wind down side of house almost under the eaves.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2019

Flowering! Lost a couple of leaves to heavy frost over Winter (I forgot to apply some protection) but excited it is flowering. Now about 1.8-1.9m tall.

UPDATE March 2019

Now in ground. Gets watered by watering system every few days. In ground next to well established Meyer lemon.

UPDATE January 2019

Had a couple of 40 degree  days which caused wilting but most leaves bounced back with deep watering. Cut the top off once it was a metre tall to encourage branching. Keeping the water up to it - easy to tell when it needs water as the huge leaves start to look a little relaxed. Considering moving out of pot into ground in protected position.

INITIAL October 2018

I love red tamarillos so thought I'd try growing the orange ones for something different. Growing well since September (spring).


Fruiting Months May, June, July

Grumichama - Orange (Seedling)

Nossojardim's Edible Fruits
Update: 35 days 18hrs

Comments: - Very ornamental glossy leaves. Cold tolerance is better than the Black Grumichama. Growing in Melbourne lost 50% of leaves outside in first year, compared to the Black Grumichama which completely defoliated (but recovered by Summer). Not expecting it to fruit anytime soon, but is a fairly vigorous grower.

Dwarf Lemon - Eureka (Grafted) 10/10

Sandy's Edible Fruits
Update: 38 days 2hrs

Comments: -

Bought in Feb 2019 about 1 meter tall, planted in pot with citrus potting mix, topped with sugarcane mulch. Growing vigorously and putting out lots of new shoots. Cold hardy, tolerated Canberra winter (-10 C). Pruned once in Sep which stimulated more growth. Sustained hail damage in Mar 2020, knocked off its first yet-to-ripe fruit. Many leaves and branches were injured however she has continued to put out more fruit. Fertilized in Apr 2020 - Looking forward to tasting its very first harvest soon!

Comments: -

Meyer lemon and tahition lime grafted on one tree. Always kept in a pot (around 65L, should upgrade soon to 100L though i did a root prune a few years back). Lime side seems to have taken over in terms of growth. Hard to keep this tree balanced now.

Mandarin - Emperor (Grafted) 7/10

Terrastrega's Edible Fruits
Update: 115 days 20hrs

Comments: -

Just purchased my Emperor Mandarin tree few weeks ago. Its in a pot (38cm diameter & 35cm height). Potting mix is Richgrow rose and citrus potting mix, fertilise with bit of blood and bond and fruit and citrus premium fertiliser, and a dash of potash. I use Tee Tree Mulch but leave about 2 inches unmulched around the trunk of the tree.The nursery advice to water twice a day here on Brisbane, so I have been doing that so far.

It looks healthy and doing well. It gets full sun till about 2 - 3pm each day, after which it gets partial sun. Height of tree from soil line upwards is about 74cm. potting mix and fertiliser and so far all seem healthy.

Late 2013, Update: Tree is still in a big pot although not the dwarf varity. Has plenty of flowers and little fruit forming (Early September). Will be transfering in the ground after fruiting. Had not done so earlier as we were renting but now have bought a house and can start putting my trees in the ground!

June 2014: It is finally in the ground. trimmed it right back and now lots of new growth on it.

Dwarf Kumquat Calamondin (Grafted) 8/10

Terrastrega's Edible Fruits
Update: 115 days 20hrs

Comments: -

My little dwarf Calomondin (I call them calamansi) and fig- Black Genoa tree arrived by post all safe and snug in their box from Daleys yesterday.

Called up Daleys and the lady on the phone (Kathrine I think her name was... sorry I am really bad with names) was very cheerful and helful in answering questions I had regarding my little calomondin. She recommended to pick off any fruit on the tree when it arrives before plabting it to allow the plant to concentrate on growing and establishing. Very nice people to deal with..

2013 Update: This tree is growing very well in its pot and has put out little fruit last year and this year. Plenty of flowers starting to form. Can't wait, this makes a delicious juice drink. Scale and aphids were a minor problem that was treated with pyrethrium and scale spray.

2014: It was a bit neglected and decided to plant it into the ground sometime in April this year. Fertilise with chook manure and blood and bone and seaweed extract and mulch. Tree developed nice new growth. It has lots of little fruit forming on the tree at the moment (Oct).
