$49.00 ($19.75-$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.

Bilimbi

$39.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

The fruit is crisp when unripe, turns from bright green to yellow-green, ivory or nearly white when ripe and falls to the ground. The skin is glossy, thin, soft and tender, and the green flesh is jelly-like, juicy and extremely acid. They are sometimes faintly five-angled with an acid pulp. The bilimbi is a close relative to the carambola however it is quite different in its appearance, manner of fruiting and uses. Originating and grown extensively in Indonesia it is also cultivated and semi-wild everywhere in the Philippines and is very common in , Ceylon, Burma, Thailand, Malaya and Singapore. The mature fruits have a crunchy watery flesh and resemble small cucumbers. They usually range from 5 to 8cm in length. The fruits are picked by hand, singly or in clusters. They need gentle handling because of the thin skin and cannot be kept for more than 4 to 5 days. The fruit is generally regarded as too acid for eating raw, but in Costa Rica, the green, uncooked fruits are prepared as a relish that is served with rice and beans. Sometimes it is an accompaniment for fish and meat. Ripe fruits are frequently added to curries in the Far East. Bilimbi is often used in place of mango to make chutney. To reduce acidity, it may be first pricked and soaked in water overnight, or soaked in salted water for a shorter time; then boiled with sugar to make a delicious jam. Half-ripe fruits are salted, set out in the sun, and pickled in brine. An attractive and medium sized tree the bilimbi displays attractive dark-red flowers that are produced in panicles from the trunk and older branches. A tropical species the bilimbi is more cold sensitive than the carambola especially when very young. It will be a challenge trying to grow outside the Tropics. It does best in rich, moist, but well-drained soil, it grows and fruits quite well on sand or limestone. No pests or diseases have been reported specifically for the bilimbi.
