I was curious what type of fruiting bonsai people are growing? Do they flower or fruit for you?
I have:
Natal plum w/flowers (no fruit yet)
American plum w/nada
Fig w/nada
Almond tree w/nada (still very young)
Chaste Tree w/nada
My next ones to get
Jaboticaba and Pitomba

RE: ftuiting bonsai

Hi, yes small sized fruit is best as large ones won't reduce, but many won't grow fruit til they're a few yrs old, and they all need a lot of sun to do it in (but you seem to be in a great location for that). What is w/nada? Do you mean 'nana' as in small? And what is Pitomba?

RE: fruiting bonsai

Hey Lucy,
sorry, w/nada=with no flowers or fruit yet. A Pitomba is a tropical fruit tree, w/small yellow fruits. Many websites (tradewindsfruit) have references to them, though the trees seem hard to come by. They and the Jaboticaba are very slow growers making (seem) excellent for bonsai.

Nada as in '0' with (w/) nada

RE: ftuiting bonsai

check out my exchange on this form. I have some calamondin oranges Im looking to trade. I have had the tree for about a year and Im having a bumber crop even after I trimed about 3/4 of the flowers off. The only problem with this tree is it has large leaves. My tree is pre bonsai and Im still deciding if im going to go as far as the bonsai pot, either way Im going to shape it.
I have a promgranet I picked up at walmart for $5 and its flowering, dont know if Ill get fruit thou.
