Brisbane Local Food

Growing local

Some of us on BLF bought these trees from Daley's around 3 years ago.

Anyone had any fruit?

Mine flowered the first year after it was planted; I removed the flowers as I always do with very young trees.

Then it flowered again this season - 2 or 3 months ago now. Just one side flowered and very few flowers at that.

Suspect our winters are just not cool enough for this plant. Low-chill yes, but it does need some chill.

Seriously considering turning the tree into the most expensive mulch ever.

I would love to hear from others how their Cherries have performed.

Hi Lily,  I was one who bought this tree 3 yrs ago.  No fruit to date and not really any flowers either.  To be fair to the tree, I live bayside so I don’t get the temperature variations (not as cold in winter but not as hot in summer) that those further west may get.  I’m considering taking it to my farm up in Gympie - I get frosts there so it might have a chance.  I’m waiting to see if it will produce this year then if not, it’s going to the farm.
