Marang

Less cold tolerant than the breadfruit it willgrow only in North QLD. Not suitable for temperate climates.

Lemon - Meyer

The lower acidity and reduced sourness makes it one of the most widely grown home-garden varieties. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are a deep orange-yellow colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin.

Little Kurrajong - Best Pink

$42.95 ($42.95-$79.00 choose a size)
