Banana - Blue Java

$19.90 ($12.90-$19.90 choose a size)

A fast growing, cold tolerant variety of banana also called Ice Cream banana as the flavour and consistency is reminiscent of creamy vanilla ice cream or custard. Grows to a height of at least 3m and sometimes up to 5 in tropical areas.

Dwarf Banana- Red Dacca

$24.00 ($19.90-$49.00 choose a size)

A Dwarf size red skinned variety which should have a deep maroon-red skin when ripe. Growing to 2.5m. Great eaten fresh when ripe or baked, fried, or toasted when still green. Red bananas have more beta carotene and vitamin C than yellow ones. This variety is showing some promise growing in cooler urban areas, like Sydney and Melbourne

Dwarf Banana - Nathan

$49.00 ($24.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Dwarf Nathan is a cultivar of the popular Cavendish banana. The flavour is sweet and creamy on these small bananas. The tree is super dwarf reaching a maximum height of only 2m so it is perfect for pots, so it can be grown on balconies and in backyards. This makes it well suited to growing in cooler areas.

Banana - Pacific Plantain


Plantain Bananas can be used when green or when fully ripe. It is a banana that ranks as the 10th most important staple food in the world. When ripe they contain more starch and less sugar than dessert varieties. A popular cooking method is to fry, bake or grill ripe plantains until they caramelize. Green bananas are always cooked prior to eating, they provide an excellent source of starch in the diet, pairing with all sorts of savoury dishes. When deep fried, they taste very similar to potatoes. They are delicious in Pacific Islander, Asian and African cuisines

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Equal if not better in flavour than the Bowen mango. A semi-dwarf tree making it ideal for backyards, it produced elongated fruits similar to the Nam Doc Mai. The fruits start out with green skin and ripen to yellow with pink-red blushed fruit. Compact, branching, slightly upright tree growing to 3-4m tall and 2-3m wide. Shows good resistance to anthracnose and black spot.

Banana - Lady Finger

$17.75 ($17.75-$17.90 choose a size)

The skin is thin and the flesh is very sweet. 12 - 20 fingers are borne in each hand with each bunch having 10-14 hands. Lady Fingers are best eaten fresh or used in desserts as they are much sweeter than Cavendish. This variety is showing some promise growing in cooler urban areas, like Sydney and Melbourne

Banana - Goldfinger

Excellent flavour and texture. Not as tall as ladyfinger. Tendency to fall over due to massive bunches. Needs propping.

Banana - Goldfinger

My Goldfinger banana plant arrived safe and well. Its now planted and we wait for spring. Cant wait to be eating lovely home-grown bananas in a few years!

Very much like the Dwarf Ducasse in flavour etc, but the disadvantage is that it's a very tall variety and this makes harvesting more difficult.
