    Well there's one I never heard of & such a lovely sounding fruit.
    I must get one.
    Where did y'all get yours from?
    What sized pot?
    I am in the process of moving my whole garden up into tubs & containers. Even new fruit trees will be in x-large tubs/bins.

    I got mine from Daley's they have a special on them at the moment. http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit pages/panama.htm I've also seen them at my local nursery.

    I use the biggest black plastic pots Bunnings sells. They used to sell bigger ones but not any more. https://www.bunnings.com.au/homeleisure-510mm-black-round-plastic-reko-growers-pot_p2941408

    All my fruit trees are in these size pots and some are in the bigger pots Bunnings used to sell. Next winter we will be making our own big pots that will be about 250L pots as I've mentioned before.

    Daley's video on them

    I'll post a pic of my Panama Berry when I take the pic :)

    When I was looking for large pots at Bunnings I thought laterally.
    Did you look at tomato pots that come with tomato growing frames for 'free'?
    I went to the builders section & found large bins, garbage bins, square & rectangular bins, huge stackable black square bins, all around similar price to plant pots.
    Some will last a lot longer than others of course.
    Garbage bins are on special there right now as are wheelie bins.
    But I think the best 'pot' is a 44gal steel drum cut to remove the top 1/3 or down to the first ring.
    Or one of those blue plastic drums cut the same height as a steel drum.
    They'll last for years.

    Actually looking at your photo Letsgo, I think there might have been a few of those here in the early years. I thought they were weed trees so didn't water them & they died. Its like I think there are pecan trees but they are nearly a dead loss now because I never knew what they were so never cared for them.
