April 5, 2013 by Helene Dsouza 24 Comments Share with the world!I thought it was about time to show you all our Tropical Fruit Garden here in Goa, India. So, now let’s get to my tropical fruit garden and I bet there will be some kind of fruits which you have never seen, tried or heard of before.
Jackfruits are massive in size and heavy with each weighting in average about 10 kgs upwards. Most of us have tasted a mango before and we would always recognize it’s intense sweet flavors. My Papaya trees grew wild and at some point we had about 6, until some decided to die in the rainy season.
I declared the breadfruit the most useful fruit cum vegetable in 2012 and I still believe my words from that time.
We call this lemon tree here Italian lemon because of its shape difference compared to the small round Indian lemons. You might have realized that I hadn’t published a new recipe post last week and as you might know me I feel pretty guilty about that and this is a huge exception for sure! Thank you so much for introducing us to all this exotic fruit like Bilimbi and Loveapples that are totally new to me, and btw I did not know how tamarind looks like.
A well-planned fruit garden should be able to provide fresh or stored produce for the family all the year round. Unless they are required for purely decorative purposes, there is little point in growing large trees in the kitchen garden.
It is wise to grow fruit trees that are trained in an intensive fashion, such as dwarf pyramids, cordons or fans. MM106 – a semi-dwarfing stock for intensive (trained) trees on poor soils or for bush trees on average soils. Pear rootstocks are fewer and the two most encountered are: Quince A – the one generally used in gardens.
Quince C – has a more dwarfing effect but is generally only used on good soils with a vigorous variety.
Although it is mainly tree fruit that is trained in space-saving ways, the same principles can be applied to other fruit, such as gooseberries.
The pruning described below is based on apples, but the method is similar for other fruits.
Dwarf pyramids are upright frees up to 2.1 m (7 ft) high, with branches growing out in successive tiers to form a pyramidal outline. In the second winter, reduce the leader by about 20cm (8 in) and cut back laterals to about 20 cm (8 in ).
When the tree has reached the required height, cut back the leader and long branches at the top of the free by half, in May. When the tree has filled its allotted space, free it from the wires and lower it a little to give more space.
Each year train a new shoot arising from near the base of these laterals to replace them when they are removed after fruiting. Although most fruit is undemanding of time once established, a little extra attention can increase yields. All tree fruit should be planted in the dormant season between November and March, preferably before Christmas when the soil is warmer. Avoid sites that are subject to late spring frosts; if your garden is in a hollow where frost collects, flowers are more likely to be damaged in spring. The next winter, select four of the current season’s growths and cut back by half to two-thirds, depending on their vigour (the stronger they have grown, the longer they should be left) and position. Summer pruning is not generally necessary with bush trees, but if the tree makes a lot of growth each year, it is often an advantage to shorten shoots to about 13cm (5 in) in August or September.
Every year, it will pay to mulch the trees with well-rotted manure or corn- but do not let it touch the trunk. In February, apply sulphate of ammonia at 35g per sq m (1 oz per sq yd) and sulphate of potash at 20g per sq m 2 0z per sq yd). Early cultivars should be eaten straight from the tree, but many late apples will store well into the spring. Both acid or cooking cherries and sweet cherries are best grown as fans, otherwise they make trees too big for the kitchen garden.
Acid cherries are pruned in the same way as peaches, but sweet cherries are bigger trees so must not be encouraged to grow too much.
Although peaches can be grown as bushes in the south, it is best to grow fans, especially if you have a south-facing wall. Pruning is basically the same as for apples, though it can be a little harder as pears will not make quite so much growth.
Early cultivars should be picked when green and hard, while later cultivars should be left on the tree as long as possible.
These are generally big trees, so it is probably best to grow fan-trained specimens against a wall or fence. Fan-trained trees require some skill to produce, so it is probably best to buy one already trained; they are usually two or three years old.
In the first spring after planting, little pruning will be necessary, but in the second cut back branches that are to form leaders by about half.
Once established, the leaders should be tied in regularly to the supporting wires to extend the framework.


When the tree is carrying a heavy crop it is important to thin to leave fruits about every 5cm (2 in). For eating, pick when fully ripe, but for cooking or bottling they should be slightly under-ripe.
This is the best season for me to show off with all the wondrous fruit treats growing in our garden.
I am the proud mother of an Olive tree, Italian Lemon tree and Custard apple tree (the latter is rather a subtropical tree).
They are known to be the biggest fruits on earth and when they fall you better be standing far away.
Yet, I have had the chance to taste different kinds and I can tell you each type has a bit of a different flavor. They do grow around the year but animals such as squirrels and bats like to attack them before they are even ripe. Our Tamarind tree stands right there in front of our house and to get a whole untouched Tamarind fruit flesh pod isn’t that easy with the little squirrels attacking them.
I am still not sure what their motive was, it might have been because they did grow right next to each other and their branches need space.
We got him last year in July and we had been hunting for the Soursop for a while before, without finding any. Long story short, I had a few reason for that, number one, the fact that it was about time to clean up my little backstage mess at Masala Herb.
I bought some in the Mapusa market, and covered the lower stems in cottonwool, and kept in a small jamjar with an inch of water. They kind of like the passion fruit ranks and they keep on wandering around those but they are so quick that it is quite difficult to catch them in time.
Even on a comparatively small plot it is possible to grow a wide range of fruits, particularly if the right rootstock and method of training is chosen for tree fruits. Standard trees on tall stems are difficult to manage, especially at picking time; they also require a lot of room and take much longer to bear fruit. The three most common ones for amateurs are: M9 – the most dwarfing stock and only suitable where the soil is good and fertility will be maintained. As Brompton and Myrobalan rootstocks are vigorous and will produce fruit trees too large for the kitchen garden, the best for small gardens is St Julian A.
Yet confidence is all that’s required, for most systems are based on simple principles. Cut these back in the February after planting, to leave about 60 cm (2 ft) of last year’s wood, cutting back to a cluster of three buds. Some are self-fertile but most benefit from another compatible cultivar in close proximity.
Plant firmly and ensure that the joint between the stem and the rootstock (easily seen as a knobbly growth) is well above the ground. Sometimes frost is trapped by fences, and lifting the fence a little off the ground may allow frost to escape.
It is possible to buy these at three or even four years old but they will fruit no sooner than one-year-old (maiden) trees.
Bush and dwarf pyramid trees must be supported with a stout stake, while cordons are trained on wires, planting the trees at an angle of about 45 degrees. In subsequent years, shorten the leading shoots back depending on the growth they have made, and shorten sideshoots to four buds. Use immediately any damaged or diseased fruit and place the remainder in perforated polythene bags, and keep them in a cool, frost-free place. Acid cherries will thrive even on north-facing walls, but sweet cherries demand warmer conditions and a deep, fertile soil. Do not prune the leading shoot, but when it has filled its space, tie it downwards to limit growth, or cut it out to leave a weaker shoot in its place. Every second year add 70g per sq m (2oz per sq yd) of super phosphate Acid cherries should be fed as for plums. New shoots are also trained in to fill empty spaces, perhaps where old wood has been cut out.
At this time, also remove old, dead or diseased wood and anything that is growing too vigorously from the centre of the fan. We have many more trees but they are still pretty young, in fact most of them have been planted a year ago, but more about that later on.
It’s not that they bounce that much, but they could easily knock you down and we don’t want that right? I think so we have about 3 Chikoo trees in the big garden and I guess 2 are suppose to be different than this chikoo tree in the picture.
Sometimes they are sweet sometimes rather bitter, it all depends on where it grew and what soil the tree had, to produce the fruits. I thought they grew just like apples, but look at this there with the gorgeous huge flower at the end. At least 2 survived and 2 smaller ones are growing on different spots, so we are in no shortage. Right now we have discovered 3 balls and I bet they will take some more weeks to ripen fully into big round fruits.
You might recall how I had stumbled upon this fruit back in 2011 and if you visit this post you ll discover that it seems to have anti cancer properties.


Well, I never expected anything and I guess because of that I had a whole bunch of Lychee trees growing after a week.
I am not fully tech savvy and I have to admit I still have a load of things to learn, so of course with the amount of pictures, published recipes, constantly growing amount of visitors and with my lack of knowledge in some fields I ended up in a pretty big mess which involved some bandwidth issues and as you might have noticed a slow loading time of the page all in all.
I have tried a few of these like the sapote, sourpop, tamarind, lychee and bananas of course. I had no idea what tamarind looked like, nor did I know you could peel a lychee and plant the seeds with any success. In subsequent years, pruning is the same, though if fruiting spurs become overcrowded they can be thinned out a little. It may also be necessary in later years to remove any crowded, crossing or damaged branches. When growth starts in spring, remove any shoots growing directly away from or towards the wall. Either they grew well for a few centimeters in the last monsoon season, molded and died right after that or I tried to plant the seeds and nothing ever grew in the dry season. There are two known variations of the Jackfruits here in Goa.  The fruit flesh of the first kind is rather jelly like and the second one in comparison has a harder flesh. So locals usually quarter the fruit and add salt and some Turmeric powder on top and eat it uncooked or uncured. While I am writing this I am munching on one and the one I am eating is from a neighbores tree and rather bitter, but I still like it. The smaller the tree the smaller the fruits will grow, but I ll tell you the taste is more intense in smaller fruits. A full grown tree gives about 200 fruits a year in India and the fruit is nutritious and tastes great if used with spices. This is the first ever fruit growing on this tree and I am already excited to know what it will taste like. At that time I was one of the few who knew about this fruit (after researching for a while), now everybody is looking for it and there are no fruits sold in the market. Any secondary shoots growing in that year from laterals that have been pruned, should be shortened again in September or October to one leaf. Select shoots growing from the top side and the bottom of the main branches, and space these about 10 cm (4 in) apart, rubbing out others or pinching them back to two leaves.
Right now this project is on ice until I figure out a solution and once I know how to grow herbs such as oregano, basil, watercress etc, you will be the first one to read about my tips and tricks here at Masala Herb. The fruit smells tempting, in fact its hard to explain, maybe I would call it a cross between banana and apple with some floury notes at the end. Otherwise they tend to use the Bimli in spiced Pickles, which by the way I have been wanting to post for a while now. At the beginning of the fruit growing process the banana flower is still near the banana leaf and gradually it will grow out, adding little tiny green bananas to the row. They say the older a Tamarind tree is the better the fruits will taste and I feel they are right because the color of the flesh tends to be dark too then.
I keep mine on the tree until they turn orange and then only I remove them, although by doing that I have to take care that somebody won’t think of picking it. Read more about the Breadfruit here, where I explained it’s uses and preparation methods. It has become rare and I hope maybe we will be able to get some more Soursop trees in the future.
Pawpaws [papayas] of different kinds grow to quite close to Sydney and bananas in micro climates but about 300 km north. After they are well-settled keep the pots where they receive at least four hours of sunshine. I would suggest to always oil your hands and your knife when you are planning on cutting it up, it’s super sticky! Watch this space and you might get the chance to learn an original konkani pickle recipe for Bimli.
Banana trees grow best near wastewaters and I can guarantee that the taste of the banana fruit is more intense at the end. I know this tree will certainly never fall on my house because it seems to be deep rooted and quite elastic.
There are many more but I am not a mango expert and the local konkani names might be known others where as something else.
Number three was the fact that we here in Goa were totally surprised by an internet problem. Not that I have never experienced slow or non existent internet here, but this time it was different.
For 5 days we could only access Google and Twitter mostly, after the 3rd day we were at least getting to open Indian pages and pages that are hosted in the US. It might have been a server outage in South India, or the hacking attack in Holland or the infamous cable cut in Egypt or simply all problems at once.
