Rare Fruit Australia archives
« on: April 27, 2012, 04:42:57 AM »
I thought some might be interested in looking at the archives of Rare Fruit Australia, dating from 1980 to the recent past. They have been digitised and made free to all interweb fruitists:

 Dow, Lee, P1, P3, P36 and unnamed ones were in that selection at Kamerunga. Lee is a big green one that can be a little yellow I think but not like that in the pic and bigger also.Sibabat was the star of the show and I know some lines have bigger fruit. The similarity of some of the blacks especially early in ripening makes me think they are just variations of sibabat also. I saw an unuasual red one at Alan Carle's place but the yellow is an eye catcher.
