Cherry 2 way - Minnie Royal - Royal Lee

$89.00 ($89.00-$120.00 choose a size)

This new low-chill multi grafted Cherry has 2 varieties ( Minnie Royal and Royal Lee ) grafted onto the same plant. Ideal for limited space and both varieties can cross pollinate each other. These 2 new Low Chill Cherry varieties should make it possible to grow Cherries alongside subtropical fruits in warmer climates with only 400 chill hours. According to Tom Spellman from Dave Wilsons Nursery in California these 2 cherry selections have proven to be winners. "Southwestern fruit gardeners can finally celebrate the introductions of two new very-low-chill sweet cherries. Minnie Royal and its companion Royal Lee have proven themselves to be low chill adaptable. In fact, they may not require any chill at all. Minnie Royal is a medium to large size red cherry with a firm texture and superior flavour. Fruit begins to ripen in early November and holds well on the tree into December. The tree is very productive and sets heavy crops in southern California. We estimate the chill requirement at 200 to 300 hours, but some have produced with less than 100 hours. A Zaiger introduction, pollinated by Royal Lee."

Mangosteen Purple

$79.00 ($34.95-$79.00 choose a size)

Often referred to as the Queen of Fruits, this tropical evergreen tree is native to Asia. The fragrant edible flesh can be described as sweet and tangy, citrusy with peach flavor and texture. Suitable only for tropical climates or a warm greenhouse. The female and male flowers are borne on separate trees but the female produces fruit on its own - parthenocarpicly. Trees are seedling grown so their sex is not known.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$37.95 ($23.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.
