Hi I dont have anything fruiting now and was wondering what tree I need to plant to fill the void.
What fruit is fruiting for those in the subtropics?
Jak fruit, Black sapote and Jaboticaba, all fruiting now
I’m not really sure if I’m in the sub tropics, but mulberries are almost at the end of the season 🙁
I have a few mulberries going(enough for the birds),but jaboticaba is still playing hard to get and so is the chocolate sapote.
Dont have enough room for a jackfruit ,that will be a community garden fruit.
Atleast Im in the right direction just need to water more and add more organic matter while i wait for my peach crop.
I forgot to add : Star apple.
Found a dried flower bud on the soursop and the flowers dropped off the grumichana and Brazilian cherry I need to massively increase my spring watering or it needs to rain occasionally.
Peach flowered the day before a massive storm
No Peaches this year
That’s a shame Snags. It seems to be a pattern where I live for the weather to turn windy or heavy rain or hail stones at blossom time, bud burst or tiny fruit stage. Luckily it is rarely severe enough to cause devastation but it nearly always severely depletes the crop.
You have my sympathy.
I bet they will taste so much better next year
Sure too. Every cloud has a silver lining and stuff like that.
Where abouts are you, Snags?
Central under Gladstone
Jaboticabas my third crop in about 12 years
You get the best, most interesting fruit in the sub-tropics – I’d love to be able to grow some of these things in Adelaide.
i’m really, really looking forward to growing jaboticabas. Are they difficult Snags?
