White Sapote - Hawaiian Supreme

$79.00

White Sapote - Kampong

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

A self pollinating selection with a compact form and thicker skinned fruits than normal. It is the preferred selection of a rare fruit grower in Bundaberg

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$49.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.
