Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree .....
Although I have not planted an apple tree yet, I have planted a few fruit trees that we love to eat. So heres a list of them so far
4 brown figs
5 prickley pears
Tropical fruit trees and vines
1 pineapple guava
a variety of bananas (cavandish, drakka & ladyfinger)
2 paw paw
2 imperial nanderines
still looking for a few pecan nuts trees
2 Bunya pine trees (they are great roasted)
Fruit tree and vine Wishlist
more citrus (grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes)
Motherday I received a voucher for the nursery near us , so I am wondering if I should buy that persimmon tree I have been eyeing out for sometime now. They take 8 years before bearing fruit. So far the trees are doing well and we hope to have a constant supply of fruit for perserving, making fresh juices and eating fresh in fruit salads.
Recipe for Stewing Guavas .... great for preserving, or eating cold with ice cream .
a large quantity of guavas
1/2 cup sugar for 1 kg guavas peeled and halved
a little water as fruit will make it's own juice.
Peel and slice the fruit in half, place in a saucepan, pour over sugar. Best to let it stand for a while .... add a little water. Cook on a med heat until it makes it's own juice, increase heat for a further 5/10 mins of until just tender. Place in bottles to preserve with the liquid and seal. Or serve cold with custard or ice cream.
