Babaco

From two small seedlings I have managed to grow two rather elegant looking Babaco (Vasconcellea × heilbornii; syn. Carica pentagona). They grow so well in the garden and are simply planted into large 50 cm pots. This year I have decided to propagate them which means I am likely to miss out on the fruit for a while, but will end up with a small plantations worth of trees which has been the long term goal. 
I originally received them through the post from Diggers Club but have not seen them offered to Western Australia for some time since. I estimate these are probably close to five years of age.

About Petit Paradis

I am on a journey with my family to transition as closely as practicable to a state of self-reliance in suburbia. I practice permaculture principles in our house, garden and community. We are on the southern coast of Western Australia. To our north is the rest of the world. To the south, Antarctica.
