Off Grid fruit forest garden tour 2018 – PINK PINEAPPLE!


Hey free women, so today we’re gonna look at our food forest, which is full of fruit. We’re gonna look at the fruit side We looked at the veggie side the other video, now it’s time to show you the fruit. This is a jackfruit and It’s an amazing fruit as you can see very prehistoric looking and this one’s probably gonna be ready in about a week or so we’re really hanging out for this because we want to eat as much food from the property as possible and it has about like It has about seven or so – seven or so jack fruits So this is one tree we have and this tree is probably about, I don’t know, it could be around thirty years old But we’re gonna check out the other jackfruits that we have, we have heaps of seedlings coming up and, like, jackfruits are a really important food source because it can feed, like, just one jackfruit is a meal in itself So jackfruit’s an important part of the food forest so we want as many as possible. Okay, let’s have a look at some others, and we have some papayas. There’s a gecko, there’s a gecko on the passion fruit on the grenadier. It’s a grenadier gecko. It’s like what’s happening? What’s happening? No pesticides. Mmm, and this grenadier is going to get maybe three times the size We have a lot of bananas everywhere because banana is obviously a very important food source, and we have pineapples Lots of pineapples and a very special pink pineapple. Isn’t this crazy? It used to be pinker than this, a little pinker. But now it’s kind of losing the pinkness a bit Apparently they’re really sweet. It’s used mainly as ornamental around the world, but you can’t eat it and this is really quite dangerous Very very sharp. Yeah, we have mangoes coming on We have a number of mango trees on the property This is our banana circle. It’s probably over ten years old. So here’s the rest of the bananas. We had this little bunch, this little baby bunch here and we also have the big mama, the pack, look at this one Isn’t it beautiful? We’ve been waiting for this for a while haven’t we Robin? It’s probably gonna take like… maybe another month. I don’t know, like, they’re not fully formed yet. They need to be- R: We eat them when they get yellow Yeah, we pick them when they get yellow. Full flavor! And there’s one over here We have a non sweet fruit – pumpkin – on this massive vine Creeper. We have a pumpkin, just one pumpkin. We pollinated this one. The other ones have died. They have to be pollinated look We’ve got quite a few papaya trees, this one is quite big I’m not sure how old, maybe it’s like 20 years old This is one of the the tastiest papayas we have – really really nice, really orange, red flesh Super sweet, just – oh so good. The fruit bats really liked them too so we have competition. Okay, this is avocado We have this really nice avocado variety which is quite sweet and um, gets big it’s a big avocado and we got some babies coming. Avocados are coming. Aguacate. This is our chocolate sapote tree. They’re kind of hard to spot, you can see there’s one there You can see those round globes This is quite an old tree. I would say Maybe it could be like 50 years old It’s quite Thick in the trunk and it’s absolutely loaded with chocolate sapote We’ve been eating these quite often. The consistency of chocolate soup OD is exactly like chocolate mousse It is crazy how similar it is. The actual flavor isn’t exactly same but it’s still really nice This is our grapefruit tree, this is quite an old tree, gives really nice sour but sweet white grapefruits, the best white grapefruit of ever ever tasted Really nice for adding to cooking and you can also add some sugar if you want to have a little bit of a lemonade R: It just flowered so it has a lot of small ones coming, too Yeah, it has a lot of small ones coming in, it gets quite loaded, it gets very loaded This is one of our mango trees and it’s pretty old, hey, this is probably about, like 50 years or more and I think it’s gonna be good season. Quite a few mangoes coming on in places. I just heard a coconut fall, just then. Let’s go and check it out These are out coconut palms Pretty massive, very old coconut palms and we probably have about 20, I’d say, on the property, which is really cool. Gotta really be careful when you under coconuts. Robin was harvesting some and one hit him in the balls, which was not too good, but he’s fine Another coconut palm and this is where a coconut just fell from so let’s go and check it out Oh, yeah, it’s a green one – excellent Hopefully it’s sealed but sometimes- oh no The rats got it Okay So this mango tree out in the field has quite a few mangoes on it. I think it’s an elephant tusk variety, I’m not sure Nice long ones. Can’t wait for these to drop We have a bit of a jackfruit forest in here. You can see them up there The other night one fell and the pigs ate it It’s very sad Check out all this shit here. These are all batteries Full of lead Old, very old. That one in the middle is a truck battery. People just left their shit everywhere, seriously So we also have some non-sweet fruit. Tomatoes coming on. Like heaps of tomatoes, seriously Look. Look at these Amazing. I have never grown tomatoes this size in my life. I think they’re called, like, something like ox heart or something ridiculous like that Very nice Got more here, and here Literally a forest of tomatoes More around here. These ones – it’s not a cherry tomato They’re quite nice Little soursop tree Time to eat you. What a beautiful fruit R: From our property! Yeah! Wow, that looks nice R: It’s good. Really sour? Give it a test. R: It’s good. It’s good? R: Yeah I like it. It’s sour. It’s like a soursop. Just sleeping in my hat! Okay, so the baby. The baby is coming with us. Now fast, baby R: Beautiful R: It tastes better when there’s more. Yeah. We like to eat babies!
