Trevor's Tips and Facts

    • Indian mulberry called chateau gets red and white form fruits, which don't stain your teeth or paving. The downside is they hold about 95% sugar and are incredibly sweet, but if you pick them a little raw they still taste sweet.
    • The great thing about globe artichokes is their flower when left out in the sun acts like a great seed raising mixture and you can transplant seeds out for a brand new set of veggies.
    • I also have kiwi fruit, passion fruit from both cold and warm climates but it's a good indication that all sorts of fruits can be grown in any part of Australia.
