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

Maxzoo's Edible Fruits
Update: 2 days 2hrs

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..)

Kath5's Edible Fruits
Update: 24 days 0hrs

Seems to be doing well, planted in mid winter at about 1m high and flowering already 1.5 months later. The branches droop a lot so I will keep it staked until it has a few good strong branches to hold rest of the plant up.

Black Sapote - Maher (Cutting) 10/10

Andrew26's Edible Fruits
Update: 44 days 15hrs

Comments: - This is the start of my tropical plant growing. The picture shows my 1st, and cheapest  greenhouse - an old fridge with the sides jigsawed out, and replaced with piecess of perspex and glass that I had lying around. At the moment it is a temporary home for black sapotes, coffees, blueberries, dragon fruit, and a pepino - with more on the way. When it gets a little too hot - the thermometer inside shows >=35oC, I crackopen the top door. It is kept warm - around 24oC O/N, even on below zero, frosty nights here in Clare, with a 70W incandescent glope, old quit and a tarp if it is raining. Next GH will be a shuttle with a clear polycarb top, before progressing to a poly tunnel, and finally, a twin walled polycarbonate GH with summer cooling and winter heating.

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A) 10/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 61 days 24hrs

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.

How well is your doing in Pot? My died last yr and i got new one today from a friend.
Edward3 says... [859 days 16hrs ago]
Initially I had it in a pot and the top half died. So I put it in the ground and it recovered, and that's when I got 1 fruit. It seems to be very happy now and is growing well.

Black Sapote (Seedling) 8/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 79 days 13hrs

Comments: -

Has flowered profusely for several years, but not much fruit set. Hence I planted a second variety of black sapote more recently and this seems to have helped with fruit set. In 2014 the tree had many flowers but the second variety had no flowers (still small tree), and again there was no fruit set, So it does seem that cross pollination is essential for the seedling tree.

Black Sapote - Superb (Grafted) 9/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 79 days 13hrs

Comments: - Needed a second black sapote to aid in pollination. The specimen from Daley's looked rather weak and spindly and is extremely slow growing in part shade. However, first fruit (just one) in 2013 was delicious, so this variety definitely passes the taste test..Have now bought a second plant from Daley's as I am convinced it's needed for cross pollination for the large seedling tree. But the grafted trees are growing extremely slowly. One of the grafted tree suddenly dropped its leaves and died. Somewhat puzzling, but, growing close to the large seedling black sapote, it might not have been able to compete for water.

Jaboticaba - Yellow (Seedling)

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 79 days 14hrs

Comments: -

 Very slow growing, delicate tree. Withstands cold Sydney nights reasonably well. Has produced flowers every year but only in winter and so the immature fruit drops off every time. Perhaps this tree requires warm weather year round to produce fruit? Will wait a few more seasons.

What kind of paw paw are these?
KathK says... [2782 days 2hrs ago]
I don't know-I just bought half a pawpaw from the fruit shop, dried the seeds out & planted them. It was a orange oval shaped one.
