garden patch of 1.5m x 3m, south facing and afternoon & evening sun.

Tried planting capsicum, tomato, long beans, cucumber. But cannot survive more than 30-50cm.
So, what fruit tree do you recommend that is heat and drought tolerant.

Answer: Hi Vincent,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

You can check the listed drought tolerant fruits tree: Jujube, Dragon Fruits, Pomegranate, Grapes, Persimmon and fig. Please bear in mind that all saplings will need to be well watered before establishment. Before planting, I suggest improving soil by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
