Lemonade Tree – Bunnings delivered!

Remember my Meditation on a Lemonade Tree? Well, Bunnings delivered on it’s promise.

It tastes as good as it looks!

The fruit tastes like a very sweet lemon (beautiful).

Lemonade Tree

The wonders of chook poo!

The chooks did all the work. The only thing I did was the occasional water.

Happy Days!

    • Good luck with that slpmartin. It’s funny but when I lived in Brisbane (a big city) my veges were always getting eaten by possums and I gave up. Here I don’t have the same problems – even the kangaroos and rabbits (before we got the fence) didn’t bother with my veges – maybe someone down the street has tastier veges (its a mystery to me😉 )

    • Definitely Dhyan🙂 and fresh organic, free range eggs on the side. I would like to be much more self sustainable one day – food, water and energy (but I won’t be eating my chickens😉 ).

  1. So can you eat the fruit the way you would an orange? That would be amazing. Does it smell sweeter than your average lemon tree? I want a lemonade tree so much. How cool. I definitely second the lemonade stand!

    • Yes you can Selma (no bitter taste and screwing up the eyes) and they are as big as navel oranges. I’ll have to check on the smell thing – I also have a big lemon tree, but it doesn’t have many fruit (I’ll go and smell it this afternoon😉 )

  2. Every one with a garden should have a fruit tree, hard to describe the feeling of picking your own fruits. I have a sour cherry tree and an asian pear tree in a small city garden. The squirrels love my garden!
    Your lemonade tree is very impressive!

    • Thanks Ben🙂 your trees sound wonderful – I remember your (visual) clafouti recipe (in fact I have it here right in front of me, as I was clearing my desk on the weekend).

        • No I never made it from your recipe Benedicte – cherries are a bit hard to find at the moment (or so expensive – they are in season around Chistmas time) – do you use the sour cherries from your tree? I do like the sound of clafouti.

          • You can do a clafouti with any fruits, plums, dried prunes, apples apricots etc… The traditional recipe is with cherry.
            Yes, I use my sour cherries in fruit salads, cakes etc and I freeze them for winter. I also like that word, clafouti, very funny soound.

  3. We made the lemonade today – I can’t believe how much sugar you have to use to get it tasting like the stuff in a can – Michael said ‘Mum, that’s not true what you said about it tasting just like the stuff from the shops’ – hahaha – it looked quite brown because I used raw sugar – but I think it tasted fine (the kids did all the squeezing – so that was a good use of child labour😉 ).
