It is so strange to see such big fruits on a small tree.

We only have one Feijoa tree; but the fruits produced every year were more than what we can eat. This new variety is very yummy and sweet. Ripe fruits remain green in colour but they drop to the ground every morning. You cut them into two and use a tea spoon to eat them.

My plum tree produces two types of fruits: Billington and Black Doris. This is because there are two graftings on the one tree. Here you can see clearly that one branch already has leaves and the other branch was just starting to bloom.

These Billington plums are very juicy and sweet.

The hardest fruits to grow are still strawberries because the birds usually get to them first. What they missed, the snails will have a feast!

Lemons and Limes

From just this one tree we made all our lemon tea for many years.


These mandarins are juicy and easy to peel.


This apple tree produces two types of apples, Golden Delicious and Royal Gala.


This Tamarillo plant (tree tomato) has been very productive every year.
