Dwarf Coconut Malay Bronze (Seedling) 10/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 191 days 8hrs

Comments: - Bought from Daleys, I like this palm because Its a food producing Palm. Planted 15/02/2017, I dug a 3 foot by 3 foot hole filed with sand, compost, garden soil and mixed it well with my clay soil. As you can see it is sitting up off the ground a bit but will drop as it settles. When I got the palm sat it in seawead solution as instructed. Spent about two hours in the sink in the solution before planting in the mix outside. I put 9 liters of seawead solution over it again after I planted it.  The palm is in sub-tropical climate SE Qld, So will let you all know how it goes.

Peanut Butter Tree (Seedling) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 216 days 19hrs

Comments: - Fun to grow and the fruit does taste like peanut butter. I suspect this species is chill sensitive as it becomes chlorotic in winter once the night temps are less than about 8C - followed by bright sunny days. It recovers perfectly fine in spring so I don't worry too much about it. I use acidifying agents for them though as they don't like the lime in our bore water.

Peanut Butter Tree 9/10

Brett7's Edible Fruits
Update: 246 days 0hrs

Comments: - I have over a dozen of these growing (in two different places in Perth). Bought six from Daleys in 2017 which are all between 120 and 200 cm tall in 100 L planter bags. All are currently flowering but only a few fruits have set. The plants which are growing the best receive approxmately six/seven hours of full sun and have sunken teracotta pots which provide constant moisture. Plants that were planted in medium shade are taller but leggy. I also have an older seven plus year old plant (originally from Daleys) which flowers but does not produce large amounts of fruit. There is a possiblity it does not get enough water... Currently experimenting with fertilisers, water and bags (to increase humidity) to see if it encourages more flowers to open.

The plants do not seem to like the cold that much with the leaves looking like they are suffering from chlorosis if not protected. 

Fruit does taste like peanut paste but does not have the best flavour or texture if left on the plant too long.

Macadamia G6 (Cutting)

Markmelb's Edible Fruits
Update: 269 days 7hrs

Comments: -

This is the so called Home Beauty G6 Macadamia

Planted Cutting which I think may be a Birdwood plant? Has kicked on well with several flushes already

2nd year in it has stopped growing height but is thickening up and growing branches - leave down low are quite long and some grow weird and twisted but leaves are getting smaller towards the apex - anyone know what causes gnarly twisted leaves? could it be bugs munching new growth as leaves form?

Worked out twisted leaves are due to cold but has acclimatised now and is holding 20 nuts March 2019 photo - tree seems to have topped out at 4.5 to 5mt which it is supposed to.do? Lets see? 2020 should be a way bigger crop?

Planted: 2013

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Question:

Anybody know what causes  Macca leaves to grow twisted and Gnarley looking??

Jan28 2016 pic growing well but stil twisty leaves - getting shorter leaves as it matures

Hi Mark - I've found the same on my dwarf macadamia - new leaves definitely look variegated. Grateful it's not just me!

Maybe it is more subtropical than a warm temperate zone.  Likely it wasn't protected enough

Too much hard work for the value of the nut.... will stick to something that likes arid conditions until we can actually be there full time to care for the more delicate

Where are you fiona as I have an A16 growing well against a north facing brick wall and doing quite well here in Melb and Macca similar to Pinkaliscious in a more open spot doing well too -- see my edibles - markmelb
Fiona11 says... [963 days 2hrs ago]
Thanks Mark. Mine in Streaky Bay SA. I think north wind was a factor and we don't have the conditions yet (shelter / heat mass) to grow subtropical at this time.

Walnut - English (Grafted) 7/10

Tabs's Edible Fruits
Update: 488 days 20hrs

Comments: -

var. Chandler.  While I got walnuts from this plant, I never really got it to grow well.  It ended up with a root rot fungus which I successfully eliminated but it never was happy in a pot.  My recommendation is that although you can grow them in Sydney, its best to plant these trees in the ground.  I ended up giving this plant to someone who has the room to let it grow. The closely related pecans, though, are doing well in their pots.
