This is a video(3:15 min) about John and Lyndall Piccone’s exotic fruit orchard at Tyagarah in New South Wales. The resource describes how the property produces more than 200 different tropical and sub-tropical fruits with the harvest beginning in early spring. Successive harvests serve to maintain customer interest in the fruits. Piccone explains that the produce is marketed locally at farmers markets and to specialist chefs. He shows how biosecurity is achieved through a fruit fly exclusion netted enclosure and displays his innovative way of allowing bees to pollinate fruit flowers within the enclosure.
