brazilian tree grapes lookout 😎
« on: December 18, 2015, 12:31:45 AM »


Here is a new selection of nsw davidson plum by a guy who probably has a bigger cross section of all 3 species than anyone I know. Its these sort of people who will bring out the best aussie natives have to offer.This is what he said about it:
A new selection of Davidsonia jerseyana, still without a brand name but this one is a little gem having crisp, non-sour bite sized fruit that bursts in your mouth wanting you to try a second one. Its unique and originated from a 1999 wild collection and 16 years later 1 tree in a row of 100 has decided to fruit differently to the others. Usually D.jerseyana fruit are twice this size and very sour !!
They feel like Thompson seedless green grapes and open the same, with a crisp almost snap like texture.

Hi Troy,

Do you want to amazon grape seeds?

It is a difficult recalcitrant seed to send ..

The tree is dioecious.

I made a killer chutney for Xmas out of jerseyanas collected from a park. I saw Kris's post about these the other day. Hoping he gets his online nursery up soon, as he has tons of different 'forms' of them...

Haha, nice one Alexandre! I thought I was staring at the fruit off my Davidson plum there for a second..  Hopefully the one druss speaks of will be bred further and available soon.
