Miko - Look up The Fruit Salad Tree Company - it is located in Emmaville - far North New South Wales. That is where I bought all my multi fruit trees from. I have an apple tree with 3 different types on it, a peach tree with 2 different types on and you can pick from a selection what you want grafted onto the tree - you can have up to 5 different say Citruses and so on. I also bought them as gifts for people and they have all survived being in pots whilst we built and this has been their first season in the ground. They are not cheap but they are good stock is all I can say! I initially saw them at a Gardening Exhibition and was intrigued by the different types of fruit on one tree. They have also exhibited at gardening shows in Melbourne as far as I know.
I did see a gardening show on TV where an old migrant gardener in Victoria had grafted his own various fruit trees. Worth a try I guess??
Hope this helps you somewhat.
Muriel- I was please with the lemon harvest this year. Our Ponderosa Lemon tree is only 2nd winter in the ground and not reported to fruit for a total of 3 years following transplanting. What a surprise when we picked a total of 14 beautiful lemons.
The Ponderosa lemon is the large one, the others are normal size lemons of 2" diameter. The Ponderosa has a rather thick rind which protects incredibly sweet segments. Ours juiced out an average of 8 oz. of juice per fruit. The juice is a bit easier on the stomach than the regular size varieties. Not so good for strong curd, but GREAT for lemonade or seasoning fish dishes.
