Resistant to both 'Berry Disease' and 'Coffee Rust' this tree was developed and recommended for growing in the Northern Rivers Area by NSW Agriculture Department after extensive trials at Alstonville NSW. An open spreading variety, it is a reliable cropper, producing large flavour-filled beans; it is also the recommended variety for those who intend to harvest mechanically.
Although not sweet itself this miraculous fruit, consumed fresh and allowed to coat the mouth alters your tastebuds so that everything you eat tastes sweet, lasting for an hour or two.
The beauty of it is that it only removes the sourness 'acidity' from what you are eating, the natural aroma and taste remains. It has been used to sweeten bitter medicines.
For success the plant prefers a pH as low as 4.5. A great companion for your blueberries. Requires a sheltered position free from frost and partial shade. Excellent unusual potted plant that can be moved into a hot spot dur
This attractive tree has clusters of yellow flowers that are followed by an abundance of dark red fruit to around 2.5cm long. The rich, sweet flesh has a texture similar to peanut butter. The fruit can be eaten fresh or made into milk shakes.
