Natal Plum - Carissa Macrocarpa - March 2016

This little shrub is still well like under 10cm one year on.  It just hasn't gone anywhere.  Except it did flower!.  The most lovelly smelling little white flower.

July 2017 took the shadecloth guard off it to see if that makes a difference.

Plum - Blood 7/10

BJ11's Edible Fruits
Update: 64 days 12hrs

Comments: - Planted in location #42 (clay, loam, quartz) . Believed to be a Japanese blood plum (so should cross with existing plums). Was rescued from a deceased estate. Trunk was about 25cm in diameter. It was pruned to about 1.2m high and 1m wide (<30% of its original size), and roots were pruned to within 40cm of trunk. It produced leaves in spring 2016, but these were shredded by parrots until there was so much growth the parrots couldn't land anywhere on it. It seems determined to live!

Plum - Luisa (Grafted) 7/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 77 days 22hrs

Comments: -

Replanted in Katoomba in 2011. Growing very well and produced prolific fruit. I can now report that the taste is quite good. The plums are ready to eat when coloured half yellow and half red. If you try to wait till they are fully red, they will be overripe and starting to go off. They are relatively soft, very juicy, fairly sweet. The tree is vigorous so requires a good pruning each year.

Hi Edward, Has your tree fruited yet? I'm interested in planting this variety and would like to hear your thoughts on taste or even try before I buy! I'm around the corner from you so my conditions would be very similar. Great collection of fruit trees you have.
Edward3 says... [1873 days 5hrs ago]
I transplanted the tree in Katoomba in 2011 to get a higher chill factor, although I believe it should also fruit in Sydney. It has grown very well last summer and I expect to get fruit next year. Will let you know then how it tastes.

Ed Do you recommend this Plum for Quakers hill area ? Thanks
Edward3 says... [1159 days 3hrs ago]
This is supposed to be a low chill variety, so I think it would be fine for your area.

Mango - Bowen Seedling (Seedling) 9/10

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 77 days 22hrs

Very tasty fruit, but fruit set depends very much on the weather being right at flowering time, so some years get very little fruit. In 2017 got a huge crop due to the combination of dry weather at flowering time and good rain after fruit set.

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

Edward3's Edible Fruits
Update: 77 days 23hrs

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.

Comments: -

Very attractive little tree, bearing a large number of beautiful red plums. The skin is somewhat bitter. The flesh is yellow, juicy, soft and fairly pleasant. In second year did not produce flowers, but had plenty in third year. Must wait till fully ripe (dark colour and turning soft) to get best taste. However, overall was not sufficiently satisfied with the taste and so removed the tree.
