Black Sapote - Chocolate (Grafted) 6/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 7 days 5hrs

Comments: - Espaliered. Takes a few years of growth before trunk is thick enough for tree to hold fruit. Only one fruit last summer at 4y mark. I see both male and female flowers, female come out later (early november when I spotted this). Rainforest tree, roots do spread in yard in cool/wet/mulched spots so I would be careful to not plant too close to a structure as not sure if roots would expand and damage. Must trim regularly in summer to keep it small. Was told grafted versions grew shorter and less aggressively than seedlings. Hope I get more fruit this year, a pretty waxy leaved plant.

Dwarf Custard Apple - Tropic Sun (Grafted) 10/10

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 7 days 5hrs

Comments: - Espaliered, looks awesome - took well to this and friends have commented. Love the fruit, not gritty/grainy like some other custard apples and small seeds too. No need to hand pollinate. Downside is that all of the fruit comes at once, quickly over a month from mid-feb to march in Brisbane. Must bag/net to protect from fruit fly - unripe fruit drops leading up to harvest as a natural thinning method so I bag by Feb and find fruit only start to get stung two weeks after the very first fruit drops. I harvest fruit to freeze the pulp to use later. Amazing with vanilla ice cream. I took a gamble with limited info online when I got this tree - it is a winner!!! I don't know why someone could not like the taste.

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass A (Grafted)

Malanda231's Edible Fruits
Update: 7 days 5hrs

Comments: -

Too early to comment as only planted a few months ago. Facing north-east with house shading tree from hot western sun in summer. Planted half in the ground and on half mound, built up soil bed to increase drainage as have clay soil.

I want to get pinkerton and wurtz to extend the harvest period further. Dwarf/semi dwarf was a must for me.

Jaboticaba Large Leaf (Seedling) 9/10

Mindy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 11 days 12hrs

Comments: - Wanted to try something different. Growing much faster than expected - think the secret is constant moisture. I use old plastic bottles with dripper like attachments to deliver a drip system in the pot constantly - quite a bit of new growth which has been great.

Jaboticaba - Yellow (Seedling) 6/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 16 days 10hrs

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. But finally got a crop in 2017. Interesting sweet fruit. Not much flesh so need to eat several fruits in oder to appreciate the taste.

Jaboticaba Large Leaf (Seedling) 9/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 16 days 10hrs

Comments: -

The small leaf jaboticaba is delicious, so we decided to try the large leaf as well, though we know we have to wait several years for the fruit.

Tried the fruit in Tropical Fruit World, and it was very tasty, considerably larger than the small-leaf jaboticaba. We found, however, that it does not keep well and should be eaten straight after picking.
