Custard Apple - Golden Emperor

$79.00 ($79.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A self fertile Custard Apple with a dwarfing habit making it ideal for backyards in warmer climates. The fruits have a lower seed count then some varieties. This is a new release custard apple that will produce good crops of tangy sweet fruit for you.

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.

Rollinia - Picone

$89.00 ($89.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Selection from Northern NSW, consistent cropper in frost free subtropical locations, large juicy fruit. Rollinia is a relative of the cherimoya this plant has its origins in tropical America. The fruit about 100mm in diameter has a creamy juicy and delicious flesh, according to some tasting like lemon meringue pie. Sourced from Picone Exotic OrchardsThe foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Avocado - Fuerte (B)

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Pear shaped fruit, small to medium in size with slightly rough, thin green skin. The flesh is of a buttery texture with excellent flavour. Vigorous spreading tree that bears biennially. Harvest April - June

Longan - Kohala (Marcot)

$69.00 ($69.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Large fruit with an aromatic sweet to spicy taste. Early season heavy cropping variety. Closely related to Lychees, Longans are highly valued in South east Asia. They are hardier and quicker growing.

Mango - Alphonso


Yellow skinned, medium size, only slight fibre, excellent quality. Sets well in subtropics. It is a favourite of India where it is the most desired of all the mangoes. So although not a huge mango the quality and taste is what makes it famous.

Custard Apple - Paxton Prolific

Lovely flavoured fruit, being self pollinating is an excellent quality. Already have one and compared to other varieties I think this has far better flesh quality and taste. I also like the size of the fruit as being of a manageable meal size as well. Have always found them to be juicy and thankfully not a lot of trouble with fruit fly this last season and only a couple with some in last season. I keep the tree I already have pruned to a manageable size.
