"I grow Chinese taro - the Bun Long Taro cultivar, I don't know how it is different but we only eat this type. It's easy enough to grow but I am never sure when it's time to pull out of the ground. The optimum taro is when its texture…"

Winter guavas

"I am very jealous. My guavas are large but won't ripen on the tree. I reduce the number to about a dozen a year. They start to rot as soon as they go yellow. Any advice?"

Backyard Bakers - all types of bread

I was going to limit this to a bread makers' group.  But, on reading a few of my baking books, there are just too many wonderful goodies out there that need to be included.  If you bake it in an oven and it tastes darn fine, then post it here. I'll try to make some relevant threads to help keep us organised.  See More

Jujube fruit

"Be very careful Doug. I had a 7 year old jujube plant contained in a pot which I got rid about a year ago. I still have suckers coming up at the moment. I love dried jujubes but I've decided it to do mail order from a farm in Victoria instead."

Start of lychee picking.
