For my birthday last week my nana brought me a lots-a-lemon tree. (I turned 27)
A bare-rooted crimson sultana and an Marroo seedless grape vine. The Marroo grape is an Australian developed grape, here is some info about it.
Pruning: spur prune to 24-28 spurs, with two buds per spur.
Crop thinning: before flowering thin to one bunch per shoot and after fruit set, trim lower half of each bunch.
Crop load: maximum of 30 bunches per vine.
Use of GA: do not use GA as it may cause excessive berry drop and produce straggly bunches (or no bunches) in the following season.
Rootstocks: incompatibility has been reported for Teleki 5A. Other rootstocks, 1103 Paulsen, Freedom, Harmony and Kober 5BB, have been used successfully.
Colouring: not required.
Maturity: minimum 16° brix.
Harvest period: late January to late February.
Cool storage: unknown.
Susceptibility to rain damage: slight.
Susceptibility to sunburn: low.
Special notes: this variety is susceptible to Powdery Mildew infection. Bunches must be picked within 7-10 days from maturity as the berries soften quickly on the vine.

And finally a coffee bean tree. I found this at the markets this morning and couldn’t resist it. Buggered if I know where I will put it at the moment, so I might pot it up for now and give it a good feed.
