What from Eddy & Tina: The land here is approximately eleven acres, a sheltered valley covered with mostly scrub & tea tree/kanuka.
Have cleared and ‘thinned’ out sections of bush and planted (over a period of 12 years) various varieties of Cherimoya, Bananas plus many other types of subtropical fruit.
Most varieties of Citrus are here and the familiar pip & stone fruits as well.
Have had reasonable success with Mangoes growing outside and tropical papaya which is covered over and kept dry during winter months.
There are many unusual Palm species here, some of which produce edible nuts.
There are more novelties to cover, better described on the day.
Appreciate interest and input from others – may we all enjoy and learn something, on the day.
