Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Maxzoo's Edible Fruits
Update: 43 days 15hrs

Comments: -  Small size. Photo taken a year after planting- it has grown alot and definitely changed shape. It is a bit weepy compared to others. I picked the flowers off this year, maybe next year I will leave them on. I have an earth bag underneath it that drip waterers it most of the time and it seems happy. I have had a shade cloth over it but it seems happy enough without it on- no real sunburning or wilting going on yet (its only spring now..)

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A) 10/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 58 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Flowered in the first year of planting. Grafted dwarf pinkerton bought here at Daleys.

 

I love it because I love Avocado's :) This variety is thriving in my garden coastal area of Southeast Qld. I planted it on top on the ground,  before I did plant it I put gypsum and  heaps of organic matter into the soil below. I sat the plant on top of the soil and used  two bags of high quality organic garden mix, around and under the plant. I placed the avocado between two golden cane palms to help shade it from the fierce summer heat. Normal weekly watering, sometimes I make it two weeks before watering depends on the weather. It's been care free and it's just doing it's thing - growing nicely..........

Update - Saturday 11 and sunday 12/02/2017 was very hot 40. The next two days 13/14 -02 -2017 hot blowy winds. The 13/02/2017 it rained about 3 mm at night. The plant is really floppy at the top and droopy now. I have seen this before when the tree is stressed out. I usually leave it and it comes good, will see this time. I am currently using a cane to straighten the top of the floppy portion, will see how it goes (the plant is surrounded by stakes and secure). The colour of the plant is dark green and healthy- apart from the precious thing being stressed. It's in shade but the wind and heat is taking it's toll (still blowing hard) for now, soil is wet but not overly so. Will update. Avocado feeling not so stressed today 15/02/2017 and has started to straighten up, winds slowed heat reduced, haven't watered. It has put on a great growing spurt since been plant bit over six months ago - near seven foot tall now. Trunk skining compared to height - stakes needed else will fall at this stage. Fertilised recently with 10-10-10 osmocote bought from US. You probably won't find 10-10-10 in Aus.

I am just happy to see that someone also use strawberries as ground cover under their trees. I plant strawberries under every fruiting trees in my backyard, they make perfect ground covers and are also very delicious.

Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree (G) (Grafted) 5/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 76 days 12hrs

Comments: -

Very attractive little tree, bearing largish yellow plums. These ripen later than Gulf Ruby and taste reasonably good provided you wait till fully ripe. In second year producing 30 plums even though its partner Gulfruby did not flower this year, so it looks like it's self-pollinating well. But overall the taste was not sufficiently satisfying and so removed the tree.

Dwarf Orange - Navelina (Grafted) 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 123 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I tasted one of these in Atherton earlier this year and was most impressed by both the fruit and its flavour

June 2016 I had 1 piece of fruit this year in April. More orange inside than the Washington and amazingly sweet

Dec 2016 This tree is going great guns and it has a nice crop on it. It seems as though it will be slightly ahead of the Washington navel by about 2 weeks as it was last year

April 2017 This year the tree has been heavily hit with gall wasp whilst the other citrus have missed out entirely

How does the taste compare to Washington Navels?
Slicko says... [250 days 23hrs ago]
Hi Swoon, I am of the opinion that it is seeter than the WN, probably better than it. The home grown fruit of both varieties leaves shop bought fruit for dead... Mick

Thanks heaps Mick. Looking forward to it!

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel 10/10

Slicko's Edible Fruits
Update: 123 days 18hrs

Comments: -

I have tried growing this variety previously with no luck, however I now understand that my efforts were doomed to failure because I was trying to grow them in the wrong location. A different home and an appropriate location should serve the new tree well.

 April 2015. This tree is now going full steam ahead and I am really hopeful that I will see some fruit on it this season. It is now significantly larger with a lot of new growth.

 June 2016 A successful crop of 30 really sweet navels. I feel happy now :) I can't believe how juicy and sweet this crop is compared to shop bought fruit.

Dec 2016 This tree is now 2 metres  tall and has a great crop on it. Really looking forward to harvest time next year.

 A couple of things that I think have contributed to the harvest over the past 2 years: Clearing the ground of grass out to the drip line, mulching heavily, fertilising at the change of each season and regular watering from the first blossom.

May  2017. A crop of over 50. Interestingly the tree has provideed 2 crops, one to ripen earlyJune and one to ripen about a month later as a result of a second flush of blossom
