The Orchard in Autumn

The orchard continues to produce.  The citruses are starting to dominate but there are still a few figs, loquats, guavas and the last of the Davidson plums.

The Davidson Plum is an Australian native.  Extremely sour; great for cooking.

The guavas do very well in Sydney if they get enough sun

My first crop of loquat is more than satisfactory

These grapefruit sized oranges are good for marmalade

The Arnott’s Blood oranges are yet to colour up

That bare patch of ground is my neighbour’s car space; I don’t have such luxury.  My car space is my orchard.
