Fig Black Genoa

$19.75 ($19.75-$59.00 choose a size)

A large fruit with purple skin and red flesh that has a very sweet rich flavour. Grown commercially due to its high yields it is also a popular selection for home gardeners. Also known as San Piero abroad.

Loquat - Nagasakiwase

$46.95 ($46.95-$79.00 choose a size)

The best Japanese variety so far, it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. Earliest variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size. The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April / May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop has a much larger crop and better fruit size.

Kumquat - Meiwa

$39.00

Similar to the Marumi. A round brightly coloured fruit that can be eaten straight from the tree. Both the skin and the flesh are very sweet. Cold hardy.

Dwarf Orange - Navelina

$39.00

A Spanish variety. Navelina produces fruit of excellent quality and brilliant colour, very early in the season. Good fruit size and naturally develops an outstanding deep red orange skin which is very attractive. Trees are compact and smaller growing than most varieties of orange.
