Panama Berry 7/10

Davewastech's Edible Fruits
Update: 317 days 7hrs

Comments: -

Extraordinary fast growing (3m/year in Sydney), attractive tree. Fruit are pleasant, very sweet and juicy. The leaves are soft and easily damaged by wind, so the tree can look a bit scruffy towards the end of winter until the new growth starts with warmer weather. It got sick looking and died after two years - in spring. (Clay soil?)

Planted a second one - it's first fruit were this summer 2019. Similar to the first one - hope I can keep this one alive!

Panama Berry (Seedling) 9/10

Ant751's Edible Fruits
Update: 348 days 11hrs

This has to be the fastest growing tree in the world. Wow it just took off like a rocket. As can be seen in these photos mine is around 4-5 meters and I can see it wants to grow more. Proably will end up like 7m tall. Since it is only 14 months old and was pruned last year right back to 2 meters this is amazing growth indeed. Mine is getting too big for the area it is in and needs another large prune again. I am very safe in saying this tree is difficult to keep small.


It fruits all year in the subtropics (Brisbane) with little white flowers which turn to green fruit. They turn red when ripe and are a little soft. The taste is sweet and juicy, a bit like grapes in my opinion. You eat the skin just like grapes and bonus the seeds in the flesh are so small they can be eaten as if seedless. Most of mine are also grape size. So they are like seedless grapes....... Presently they are not thick on the tree but there are none the less always some on the tree ready to eat.


Sadly I have discovered a mafor problem with this tree in addition to its impossibilty to keep small. It has HUGE roots! They are extending like 5-10m from the tree and are very close to the surface. Some have even started to grow! See photo evidence. Be VERY CAREFULL where you plant! This tree is ready to rumble and will take over your back yard. Better to grow in a confined space.


I am planning to cut a decent root that is already growing and move it to a pot bag. I think it will happily grow from the root and I will soon have a new tree in a decent sized contained space. I am testing the pot bag idea with some other trees which I want to keep small. Hope it works out for the long term cause I do really want to keep this tree in my garden. I love the fruit.

Make sure you spit out the skin as it can be a bit bitter the seeds inside are very sweet. They do like a lot of water when they are fruiting I think. If you are growing them in a pot them make sure that you keep the water up to them.

During Winter they look prety sick but once spring comes around they green up.

Gosh I love this plant. My pots all go through some unintentional neglect at some stage, so things have got to be able to stand some tough love occasionally. Other than prefering to be in partial shade through summer, this one is easy and fuss free. Can go a few weeks with me forgetting to water it, and still bears beautiful fruit. I'd never tried it before buying it, but it absolutely lived up to its reputation! It is delicious!

If i had to describe the flavour... it's like a lot of people say. Sort of burnt caramel/popcorn. It's most definitely a sweet fruit, but the after taste reminds me of tomato. It's not the least like a tomato or at all acidic like a tomato, though. They're difficult to explain, but super tasty!!

It doesn't get a lot of fertiliser- I just do the compost top up and maybe a bit of whatever else I have once a year while doing some of the other pots, and it is mulched thickly, and underplanted with salvias and parsley. It gets water when I remember, and I move the pot into full sun in the cooler months so I continue to get fruit, and back into part shade in summer. Other than that, sweet fruits all year round! 

Definitely one of my favourites for fuss free pot growing in hot, humid, dry Brisbane!

Russtrac1's Edible Fruits
Update: 750 days 7hrs

Comments: - I only planted this tree in a lrage pot a couple of months ago and it is growing like mad! Long branches and weeping foliage makes this a very attractive tree. It easily grows a few inches every week at this point. The tree doesn't seem to mind frequent watering when in a pot with well draining soil. I mixed in fresh horse manure and a compost blend with just some cheap hardware store cane potting mix and it seems to love it. I also give my plants a regular (weekly) dose of worm castings, and a bit of blood and bone just to give it a start.

Susan1's Edible Fruits
Update: 1506 days 23hrs

Comments: - I've only ever had 2 berries, one from a friend at work who bought one in for me to try.  That convinced me that I HAD to have this tree in my yard.  The most beautiful tasting berry - sort of like caramel.  The second one I just ate off my little tree.  Just as gorgeous.  Only complaint - they are tiny and my tree, while growing fast, is still not big enough to produce enough to satisfy me.

Grows very fast, gets lots of fruits which taste like caramel popcorn. Looks a bit sad in the Sydney winter but takes off again in spring, needs plenty of water. Still producing fruit at the end of autumn, wait until they are slightly squishy before picking for maximum sweetness.

The fruit tastes awfull once the weather cools down, this tree is now in the ground and I expect it to really take off this summer.

Fruitful's Edible Fruits

Comments: - Apparently this tree fruits for most of the year and after hearing the berries taste like caramel - well I bought 2! It is also a great shade tree with an umbrella style shape when mature. The leaves are soft and velvety and after planting it 3mths ago already it is fruiting. I also read that the Panama Berry is one of the fastest growing trees you can find.

Fast growing good looking tree. Planted in Sep 2011 and it is nearly 2m tall, but still no fruit. I had one berry so far. Flowers are falling off for some reason. I hope it starts fruiting soon. I read about this tree and decided to grow it for the supposedly abudant fruit.
