    I think some day the white sapote will go on the market again. I remember buying the fruit from Coles many years ago, in fact in the eighties and then no more. Now with trade agreement with Indonesia signed, I think in a short time, we will be able to taste a good variety of tropical fruits that are so elusive to us unless we go to tropical countries during the fruit season to enjoy the bountiful fruit harvest. Some of these wonderful fruits are gifted through nature's bounty from the jungles. Hope our government will move forward quickly to remove the backwardness of blind, selfish, nationalistic restrictions which deny all Aussies from enjoying a better life in their own country cuisine-wise.

    Do not expect u to. Just love to see what your reaction would be. Always nice to know the thinking of other gardeners. Enjoy your fruits.

    Frost protection
    I used Potassium, Phosphorus and minor elements to my tropical fruit and it seemed to work.

    My Tropical Obsession posted on: southerspirit4life (Tropical Fruit Tree Experiment)
    I think that’s you may be on to something. I researched it and found this information
    3.3. Potassium and Low-Temperature Stress

    Cold stress inhibits plant growth and development, which results in limited crop productivity. It affects plants by directly inhibiting metabolic reactions and indirectly influencing cold-induced osmotic, oxidative and other stresses. The effect of increasing K+ applications on yield and cold tolerance studied by Devi et al.[92] in Panax ginseng showed that a high K+ concentration activated the plant’s antioxidant system and increased levels of ginsenoside-related secondary metabolite transcripts, which are associated with cold tolerance. Cold stress may destroy photosynthetic processes and reduce the effectiveness of antioxidant enzymes, resulting in ROS accumulation [66,93,94]. K improved plant survival under cold stress by increasing antioxidant levels and reducing ROS production [7,92].

    Greater frost damage in K-deficient plants is related to water deficiency from the chilling-induced inhibition of water uptake and freezing-induced cellular dehydration [95]. A significant negative correlation was found between frost damage and leaf K concentration, and an adequate K supply can effectively increase frost resistance [6,8]. Bogdevitch [96] found that oats that were supplied with sufficient K could survive late frost without obvious damage, whereas much of the crop that was grown on K-deficient soil did not survive. This finding could be attributed to a regulation of osmotic and water potential and a reduction of electrolyte leakage caused by cold stress [8,97]. High concentrations of K+ protected against freezing by lowering the freezing point of the plant’s cell solution. Furthermore, an adapted cytosol K+concentration is also essential for enzyme activities that are involved in regulating frost resistance [8].

    I'm amazed at what you are growing in Melbourne,
    my brother grows all exotic fruits but he is up North Queensland,
    I didn't think you could do this down south.
    How big is your block?
    I would love to do this but I'm in South East Queensland and we get below temps. and heavy frosts.

    nice yard.. have you tried creating a plastic housing around the paw paw? the thermal mass from the wall might hold some heat you can work from

    Hello Australian brother ! If you would like to increase your Custer apple production try hand pollination it will definitely help you get a very large number of this very delicious cancer fighting fruit ! Love your video and the paw paw it also in the same family as the Custer apple and guanábana (sour sap).

    Well done mate! That's amazing garden. Can you share how to prepare potting mix for these fruit trees? How do you grow them for years in pots? I'm having no luck with stuffs from Bunnings.

    Amazing garden! Nice to see an Aussie garden for a change : ) Have you tried growing a Moringa tree? Don't know much about them but they're supposed to be quite something. I'm in Adelaide and it gets pretty hot here and the winter has been pretty dry so far…don't like these dry spells…daren't even think of drought.

    Wow! Amazing garden mate, really inspiring stuff for a fellow Melburnian. Just wondering, what's the name of the variety of white sapote at 36:49? Cheers

    your papaya dies not from cold but root rot that it develops in wet cold soil. You need to grow it in well drained soil on a mound. Never in clay soil

    Custard apple drops fruit when temp goes below 55F.

    hey man do you think if you pull all the mulch away from the papaya it might make it through winter as the soil should get some sunlight and dry out a bit? I have a spot bananas don't like they behave how you spek of papayas and I'm leaving one spot bare this winter to see if it helps and if it comes back faster in spring

    Awesome. Its good to know tropical fruit trees can be planted in melbourne :). Ive been sticking with stone fruit trees so far.
    Nice garden you have. How big is your garden may i ask ?

    I'm in Melbourne as well, I'm near Frankston and I've noticed that everyone is having problems with pineapple Guava. How ever the Hawaii pink guava is doing very well.
