Cherimoya - White

$49.00

Cherimoya is a very heavy cropper of large fruit with juicy flesh that can be a little gritty just below the skin. The unique flavours suggests a hint of mango-papaya. A pleasure to eat due to its low seed count. A commercial favourite in California. Because of it's flavour many people have nicknamed it the "Queen of Fruits" because it's flavour is so much better than other custard apples.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Green Sapote

$34.00

A close relative of the Mamey Sapote but more compact and cold hardier. The green fruit turns to gold when ripe and has a superior sweeter flavour to the Mamey. Seeds can be roasted and eaten. Good drainage is essential.

Palm - Date Honey Barhee

$24.90 ($23.90-$24.90 choose a size)

The Honey Date Palm is the Barhee dates very famous nickname because the taste is of soft melting honey and caramel. It is not as famous as the Medjool Date possibly because it is not as big and much harder to be packaged, transported and stored due to having a lot more liquid in the flesh and easily bruised. So although it can not compete on practicality it can definitely match and better in it's honey like taste. By far the sweetest date variety. You need a Male and Female to pollinate and this can be done via the wind. Via the wind one male plant can pollinate a female plant but if space is a problem and you would rather more female plants than it might be best to pollinate by hand to ensure fruit set. Our palms are small seedlings and can not be purchased male or female. You need to wait until they flower to find out. They will take about 4-6 years to flower. We recommend a planting of at least three to increase your chances of having both a male and a female palm. If you get a long hot dry summer then dates are a must for your backyard. Also the cost of dates often exceeds $20 per kg so when you do get a big harvest it will be well worth it. Especially when these dates taste like honey and are much more unique and special than the Medjools. The name Barhee comes from the Arabic word barh meaning hot wind.

Pine Nut

$24.75 ($17.75-$24.75 choose a size)

An attractive large pine tree that bears cones of edible nuts. These are considered a delicacy in Mediterranean style cooking, due to their sweet, buttery flavour.
