May 26, 2017

It’s fruiting season now. Many trees in the backyard now are bearing fruits. The green, yellow and green colors of the fruits are hanging its deliciousness. What’s so good in growing your own fruit is it’s freshness that you can get. The fresher the fruit the more wellness it can give to our body.

20170526_153447Though it’s not yet in the category of farm but its good enough to grow some of these fruit bearing years in our backyard. Its enough to cater some of these plants and its good to see them flower and bear fruits.

So what are the fruit bearing plants we grow in the backyard?

  1. The native mango is almost in its last days of its season. The fruiting started last February and had the peak last month. The month of May is where the last of fruits are getting ripe. Lots of mangoes are still hanging in your tree. We have harvested few times and I think the remaining will be harvested this month of June.
  2. Dragon Fruit. Unlike the mango, dragonfruit is still in its starting fruiting. This May the flowers are blooming and after 30 days the red and juicy fruit with a white place can be served in the table. Dragonfruit is one of the wonderfruit because its vitamins and minerals packed in its fruit. The fruiting will last until the month of October.
  3. Another wonder fruit because of the health benefits it can give to our body. Though the banana is a yearlong fruiting but the season of raining is also the time when they grow better. And most of its blossoms come out. In the yard, we have the variety we called ‘tundal’.
  4. Last April we harvested few of the first fruits that ripen. Now, the other batch is getting bigger and by the month of July this can be harvested.

Aside from these plants we also have the yearlong fruiting plants like dwarf banana, makopa, guyabano and guavas.

It’s really wonderful to have this fruit bearing plants in the yard.

      What kind of mangoes do you have in your yard? Ours are only Indian mangoes, but they really are abundant this summer.

      We have them in our own yard and they have lots of fruits. So, every after meal we would eat them sliced and we dip them in sauteed shrimp paste. But for the ripe ones we would just slice them and eat them as is.

      In my parents’ house they have the “dayap” or lime and they are also fruiting. They also have the “kalamansi” , Philippines’ version of lemons. They also have the passion fruits and they have fruits also. Then, they also have guavas. They have “atis” also.

      Summer can indeed be the season for these fruits and it is just one of the advantages of summer. Though, it’s the heat that I hate about summer, but I love the fruits it brings.

      • We have star apple mango which is a big hit when the fruits are just in the stage of growing and green.

        We have this kind of mango that is like the combination of native mango and the star apple mango. The physical look is like our native mango but the fruit best to eat when it just beginning to yellow because it’s just so sweet. But when its ripe, there is some fiber in it which is not good to eat.

        But now I’m growing some seedlings of caramay and lemon. Also I’m trying marcotting in the lemon and the caramay tree. We have also some seedlings of guapple which I hope to grow more.

      So sad, we do not have fruits in our yard.We lack space unlike in the province. When our property was not sold we had many fruits like papaya, juicy jackfruit, pomelo, bananas, avocados, and Indian mangoes. How nice to see them turning yellow ready to pick.I missed those days in the province.

      • Maybe the next time you buy a lot you will look for some space where you can plant some fruit bearing trees.

    3. There are lots of mangoes now; even in the market, they sell quite cheap. We are blessed with so much fruits all year round because of our climate.
