"That's interesting Lissa. Never know how a plant is going to respond. I found it hard to prune it back because while it still had fruit on it would start flowering again at the tips. So would end up with long branches that couldn't handle…"

"I had one tree come back twice from being cut right back ie cut in half at the trunk. All others died but this one kept coming back."

"Thanks Lissa. If I remove all the fruit I will chop the tree down.  I have a seedling come up and would like to plant it somewhere else where it will get more water."

"The last thing to try is remove all the fruit. The plant is stressing itself trying to keep them alive. "

"I may loose my tamarillo tree. It has lost most of it's leaves and the fruit are starting to drop. There are a few new leaves but probably not enough to sustain the tree with fruit."

"Yes they do like plenty of water and finally it is raining here. I hope you all are getting plenty of it."

"Tamarillo like plenty of water. They are easy to grow from seed but they also keel over easily if they don't like the conditions. Lots of mulch. Plenty of regular water might keep it alive."

Lois Greensill commented on Terry & Angela's blog post Tamariilo's
"Yes it is on the western side and top of the plant but this did not happen last year. So I am thinking the water stress plus sunburn has created this. A lot of the big leaves have dropped and not as many fruit as last year. Some new leave are coming…"

"Are the affected areas exposed to sunlight? Sunburn is a standout candidate in these hot dry conditions. I am finding leaves and fruit burning which usually do not."

"When they're water stressed those great big tropical leaves droop. This looks like burn."

Lois Greensill commented on Terry & Angela's blog post Tamariilo's
"Some of the leaves on my tree have brown patches, anyone know what it is? It didn't do this last summer unless it is because it is water stressed this year."

"This morning I have found some half eaten very green fruit under the tree. Something is very hungry. Also nibbled the warrigal greens."

Phil commented on Terry & Angela's blog post Tamariilo's
"Yes definitely. For some reason my first attempt at growing Tomarillos failed so this spring I put a whole fruit's worth of seed in several pots for another go. I now have lots of seedlings growing although at first I wasn't sure if they…"

Welcome to BLF Terry & Angela, Here you will find many GROUPS to join, one is the GARDEN VISITS.  I am sure you would enjoy visiting our member’s gardens. The GV's are usually held once a month and you can find the 2016 GARDEN VISITS CALENDAR here. At the GV's we share cuttings, plants, produce, knowledge as well as a good chat and fabulous homemade Morning Tea..

About this site

Welcome to Brisbane Local Food (BLF)!

This site was created by Scarlett Patrick, to build capacity in the Brisbane  community for growing, buying, and living sustainably. Six years on, BLF is an important hub to promote, discuss, share and learn about local food growing, production, gardens, services and activities happening in our part of the world.

This site exists for you - make the most if it!

BLF is motivated by passion, not profit. We thank all volunteers and members who make this an active and inspiring space to be, as well as those individuals, organisations and groups working to make the future greener.

 

What is local?
The closer the better - but regional and global activities are important too.

Why local?
To reduce food miles, increase food freshness & security, improve social outcomes and reduce the unused outputs of our living environments - like stormwater and green waste.

Brisbane is a sub-tropical city in Queensland, Australia.
