Carambola Kembangan Star Fruit Tree

Star Fruit Tree Kembangan

I can vouch for the amazing taste of this grafted star fruit variety called Kembangan. Juicy to the extreme and such a strong full flavour. I have had some very special moments under Kembangan star fruit tree. Promoted as "dessert quality with few seeds" The tree crops by itself but also benefits when you have a few different carambola star fruits around. Easily kept human height in pots or in the ground via pruning & cincturing otherwise it will grow about 3-5m tall. Sensitive to frosts when young and always a good idea to net the tree before the fruit turns from green to this striking orange/yellow/star colour.
We have 44 baby Kembangans looking to move into backyards in Australia.

Canistel Fruit Trees once established can survive some very nasty frosts as this one did about 6 years ago. They are a wonderful looking tree that produces hard boiled egg tasting fruit. So good that we even find a white headed pigeon inside our Emma Canistel Fruit Tree.

Transcript of Canistel Fruit Tree Grafted Emma

Now this lovely fruit is the Emma Canistel.
and I love the Canistel they have really grown on me over the years.
They also call them the Yellow Sapote and they have a very rich, sweet flesh that has the colour and texture of hard boiled egg yolks they are quite unusual the first time you try them. The Emma is a great variety because it is bite sized. So it is quite a small fruit and it's really a lovely sized fruit you can eat the whole thing in one go.
So this one is going to have to wait for about a week until it goes very soft it will start to split and that is when it's ready to eat.
So you can't eat it straight away off the tree unless it falls.
Now this particular tree has had quite a hard life and it went through a very heavy frost down to about -6, -7 which did damage it significantly but you can see how well it's come back so that was about 7 years ago and we cut it right back to remove the dead wood from it once the frosts had finished and then it re-grew so we have had no trouble with this plant at all.
To keep it small now days we are using our dwarfing
So we are girdling this plant or cincturing it
and what that does is it keeps it nice and compact
so it reduces the sap flow and the vigor of the plant and it also encourages flowering and fruiting so we get more fruit on our Emma canistel.
We also in this tree in this season have the nest of a white headed pigeon so that's actually quite a nice addition as well and she's just quietly sitting on her eggs at the moment. You might be able to have a little peak and see her in there.

Grafted Loquat Nagasakiwase - How we got our best crop ( Fruits in the Spring )

Loquat Nagasakiwase Fruit Tree

Transcript from Video:
Look at these beautiful fruits now this is a Nagasakiwase Loquat and it's a beautiful tree as you can see it's just loaded with these great bunches of beautiful Apricot coloured fruits and there's one I've cut open. 3 seeds inside it but still plenty of flesh and they are really beautiful sweet fruit, juicy and just delicious. They've got a little bit of fur on the skin but you can just rub that fur off with your hands and get a nice shiny fruit. So you eat the skin and all, really lovely to eat fresh off the tree. Now the loquat is an old traditional fruit and it's a really hardy tree and this tree is fruiting this beautiful crop in Spring but the reason we have this massive crop on in the Spring is because Greg has been cincturing this tree in the Summer. So last summer he cinctured this tree and what this does is it stores all the starches and food and it gives it a bumper spring crop so this is our biggest and best ever Spring crop so we are really excited about these fruit and everybody loves them so people have been down here picking them for weeks we are really, really enjoying them. So this is the Nagasakiwase loquat.

Lilly Pilly Edible Hedge the Bushfood Riberry (Syzygium luehmanii)

Lilly Pilly Edible Hedge Riberry

Video Transcript
This beautiful hedge here is a Riberry Hedge, Syzigium luehmanii and it is a perfect bushfood for hedging. You can see it has this gorgeous leaf flush which is what this is primarily grown for. So this hedge is cut back by using pruning sheers and what that does is it keeps this juvenile leaf flush coming on this hedge so it doesn't fruit so if you wanted your hedge to fruit and produce a massive crop of fruits you'd need to use your cincturing tool to cincture these plants and then you'd actually encourage flowering and fruiting. So if you want a fruiting hedge cincture your trees to keep them small and dwarf them and if you want  a beautiful leaf flush use your pruning sheers to hedge them.

Grafted vs Seedling Fruit Trees - Which to choose? (1/2)

Grafted Fruit Trees vs Seedling Fruit Trees

(Video Transcript)
So a really common question here at Daleys is what is the difference between a grafted plant and a seedling and I'm just going to show you a couple of examples. So I have here a  seedling Feijoa so this plant is grown from seed and there's going to be a lot of variation between each tree so if you had a 100 trees that were each grown from seed the fruit that each tree produces is going to be slightly different so they don't necessarily grow true to type is what we call seedling variation and they're all genetically different so if you wanted to cross pollinate trees 2 seedlings are going to cross pollinate or you can also cross pollinate a seedling tree with a grafted plant such as this. Now if you look at these 2 plants and this one is a grafted tree, this one is a Duffy. You can see that the foliage is slightly different so this is juvenile foliage and this plant goes through a juvenile phase much like people become teenager and then adults. So this goes through a juvenile phase where as this plant already has it's adult foliage. So this is grafted and it's grafted down here and this is basically a miniature mature tree. The fruit that are produced on this grafted variety are going to be true to type so they are going to be exactly the same as the parent tree, you are going to know what you're going to get and it's going to fruit much quicker than this seedling tree. So there are advantages and disadvantages of both the Advantages of a seedling is they tend to be more vigorous and more  hardy they also grow slightly larger and the advantage of your grafted plant is that they are true to type and they fruit quicker. There are also different maintenance things so this grafted plant is grafted onto a seedling plant exactly like this and you need to de-sucker anything below the graft so if you look closely here you can see the graft and here's the sucker so this is a seedling sucker and it's really important to maintain your grafted plants by removing all the suckers so that's a really important maintenance to maintain your grafted tree for this seedling is going to be more vigorous and it can actually overgrow your graft it can kill off the graft because it has more energy so it's really important to get your secateurs and cut that sucker off.
