Outstanding producer of delicious tasting bananas. Excellent disease resistance, high wind resistance and some cold tolerance make this a great choice for backyard and commercial growers. Cross between Cavendish and a Lady Finger. Protect from cold winds and frost. It is a good green eating banana and when ripe it also does not brown when cut. One of the quickest-to-fruit varieties from planting.

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.

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.

Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree (G)

$39.00 ($29.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This golden plum is firm with excellent flavour & texture and a small seed. 350 hours chill. This dwarf plum is an ideal backyard variety and perfect for pots. An excellent all-round variety with the added bonus that it doesn't seem to be attractive to fruit fly as much as other stonefruit. Partially self pollinating but benefits from pollination with Gulf Ruby. Attractive in spring when it is smothered in white blossoms.
