The orange and mandarine trees are loaded as usual... hopefully won't be too long before they ripen up. One of the mandarine trees


Mandarines


Oranges


No fruit on the bananas yet though... shouldn't be too much longer... I hope prayer


Plenty of passionfruit


And something a little different... Monstera deliciosa fruit... be a while yet though, they take about 12 mths.

It has taken a while but at long last we are starting to get a reliable supply of fruit.

Richard, read this from the old forum a few weeks ago about the monstera... too lazy at the moment to type it all out again Embarassed

Love the way you grow your passionfruit. I might try that. Good looking citrus crop.

Beautiful gardens Gail. Wish, wish wish I had more space.
I agree the passionfruits look particulary good around the tank.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks all.

Gwen, the two different clumping plants are Dietes bicolour and agapanthus.

I haven't done anything special to the passionfruit except neglect to prune or train it... it has grown that way naturally. I find a lot of climbers do that - grow to the top of the support and then just grow along the top and hang down. The root of that passionfruit is on the total opposite side to this... it has nearly gone round the whole tank.

i've gotten a few small royal galas now...


and i had a huge crop of pears...they were a great size too


but once i brought the pears in and let them sit to ripen...they simply turned to water.
i'm so upset about that.
i've only had 3 make it to eating stage.

why????
