Jackfruit, looks as though I should pick it, but not sure it is quite ripe, I think the split is due to sudden rain after a long dry period.
My Dwarf Tropical Peach is covered in fruit, I have to cover the tree to keep fruitfly & birds out but as its only 1mt high thats easy. Its 4 years old & the seedlings come true to type - It is possible that its the same Peach as in Daleys catalogue, but I've had several over many years all grown from seed & do not remember where the original came from. The peaches have to be thinned or they do not grow to full size.
Some of the leaves look a bit yellow not sure if its from being under the netting or if its short of Iron
Acerola Cherry in full flower, the birds get a lot of the fruit, they are very high in vitamin C but not easy to do anything with except eat out of hand because they have several knobbly pips.
Another view of the Peach tree
Sapodilla, again covered in fruit, they have a caramel flavoured flesh with black seeds.
Harvested these yesterday, carrots, parsnip, pumpkin, silverbeet, sorell & lettuce from my shade house plantings. Often by this time of year in CQ everything is shrivelled by the heat & humidity but we are still managing to eat a lot from the patch & the corn should be ripe soon.
