I am still picking the odd dragonfruit (pitaya) but this is the last one
(as my neighbours picked the other one on top of the fence).
There are over 100 avocadoes on the big secondo avocado tree.
These are lush and full of flavour.
Ever present lettuce are always delightful to grow and have on hand for salads and sandwiches.
It is a great time of year to grow rocket as it doesn't shoot to seed too quickly in this weather.
Zucchinis bursting with flavour and delicious flowers to fry as well.
I was so excited last year when there were 5 custard apples on the tree.
This year there are over 30, can you imagine my excitement!?
I am including echinacea as a herb, although it is a pretty flower as well.
The 4 jalapeno bushes are still producing flowers and fruit.
I do love a hot chilli.
We pick the capsicum green before they can be invaded by pests.
Fancy a leek?
My little kaffir lime tree is finally starting to grow enough so that I can pick a few leaves occasionally
Green pawpaw grow beautifully in our climate.
Pawpaw need a male and female plant to produce fruit but readily grow from seed.
As do papaya, the rounder cousin to the pawpaw.
This green, soon to be red papaya is self fertile, producing both male and female flowers.
Luscious red pomegranates, bursting with flavour.
Oranges, slowly ripening.
This is a Fejoia which grows on a tree.
Ruby red grapefruit, grown successfully as a dwarf tree.
The snake beans are having a second round.
A good dose of fertiliser ensured that these vines kept producing for months.
These are the highlights of my May garden as part of the Garden Share Collective hosted by Liz.

Buon appetito, enjoy Merryn xx
