A delicate rainforest tree that naturally occurs as an understorey tree in SE Queensland and Northern NSW . The fruits can be green and cylindrical in shape, up to 100mm long and only about 20-30mm in diameter. They have a thin skin that ranges in colour from green, yellow, red, purple to even a black. The inner cells are cylindrical balls filled with lime juice.
Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree but if some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop.
Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers du
This elegant tree is often referred to as "fake chocolate" due to its similarities to cocoa in taste and texture. A Mediterranean tree, favouring arid conditions. Seedlings can be Male, Female, or bisexual. Prefers well drained soil.
Citrus rootstock used to dwarf the variety grafted onto it. It is a mutated Trifoliatia species which has hooked thorns and much slower growing. Due to the difficulty and slowness in growing Flying Dragon, Citrus varieties grafted onto this variety are usually more expensive. It imparts the same characteristics to the scion, including cold hardiness, tolerance to root fungi and nematodes. The bitter fruits can be used in marmalades and marinades.
