A single fruit remains!
Here is all that is left of the crop of 2014 – a lonely overripe tamarillo, just waiting for a bird to snatch. But somehow, they leave it alone.
Experience maybe? The sour sweetness of tamarillo is an acquired taste, and I for one, have acquired it.
So for this month’s Tree Following – here goes.
New growth is already breaking through, where only a couple of weeks ago was a bare trunk.
That lovely foliage does so well in the Autumn – less so in the Summer.
Trying to maintain the form as a vase and new growth leads to fruit – so I can shape it and guarantee a good crop for 2015.
Until next month my friends, let’s see how the tamarillo gets through what is shaping up to be a cold Melbourne Winter.
