Yuzu - Grafted

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

Native to China, the Yuzu has been used and cultivated in this region for thousands of years. The fruit is tart, resembling a grapefruit with mandarin overtones. It is rarely eaten as a fresh fruit but is used to makes sauces, preserves and a popular yuzu vinegar. In Korea thinly sliced fruits are combined with sugar and honey to make a thick marmalade like syrup. Yuzu kosho is a spicy Japanese sauce made from green or ripe yellow yuzu zest, chillis and salt. The yuzu is more cold tolerant than most other citrus, being able to tolerate to -5 degrees

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

$79.00 ($79.00-$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.

Vanilla Vine

Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Dwarf Jaboticaba - Costada

$39.00 ($29.00-$59.00 choose a size)

A beautiful, ornamental tree that produces tasty, sweet fruit. Extremely rare. Is known to fruit in two years in the tropics and perfect for pots. Growing in temperate areas is experimental.

Curry Tree

$18.90 ($18.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Fresh leaves from this tree are an indispensable ingredient in Indian cooking. The leaves are pretty much unknown in the West because they lose most of their flavour when dried. They have a distinct, spicy curry-like flavour and odour.Warning: The seeds are poisonous and should not be eaten

A Malaysian friend made a sago dish and the sauce was flavoured with pandanus, wow, from that moment I had to have the plant, it is living inside at the moment, waiting for spring so I can be planted outside.

I live in Melbourne and been growing mine indoor all year round. Will take them outside for a shower when it rains in warmer months. I also have humidifier running for humidity. I place mine in south facing window so they get morning light.

Mince the leaves and extract the juice as substitute to colour food dishes especially deserts or sweet dishes. Use large leaves at for wrapping steam glutinous rice.

Pandan plant grows very well in Sydney over summer when planted in ground. I planted into ground in early Nov. It grew big long leaves in 2 month. We have been using for cooking since. We have potted 2 baby plants for winter.

My Pandan survived winter in Sydney. I have kept it in the garage next to a glass window when temperature falls below 18C and water once a week.

Note this plant is hard to grow in Sydney's cooler winter.When night-time temp goes below 15C or when leaves lose the dark green colour,bring plan indoors. Water less in winter to keep roots dry as roots may rot. Ilost my plan to winter as I brought it...

Hard to grow in Sydneys cooler winter, bring plant in when temp goes below 15 or leaves lose the dark green colour. Water less in winter to prevent root rot. Buy a large plant to give it a chance in Sydney winter and try promote vigorous growth in summer

In Sydney, when temperature gets below 15 degrees, keep indoors. Also water less in winter to keep roots dry. Unfortunately mine died in Sydney winter as i brought it in too late. Will try another in summer and take TLC during winter.

Can easily grow in mid coast NSW, but needs more care over winter. Need to bring it into the house.

Lovely fragrant plant but always struggled in Perth winters until it rotted one year. It might have done better if I'd kept it inside in winter and been more careful not to overwater.

Fresh leaves can be stored in a zip lock bag in the freezer for later use. Use or freeze them as soon as possible, much of the aroma fades within a few days of being picked.

TIP: If you love eating steamed rice, you can put a leaf or two in the cooker while the rice is boiling. You can take it off afterwards but it'll leave a very nice aroma on the rice.

If you like eating steamed rice, you can just cut 1 or 2 leaves of pandanus, wash and fold them, stuck them in when your rice is boiling. You can take it off when your rice is done leaving a very nice aroma on the rice.

Bundle dry leaves for effective eco-friendly air freshener and roach repellent, a use popularised by SE Asian cabbies. Amused to see it done recently in a Sydney public loo. Hope my plant will one day be big enough to spare precious leaves for that!

The Pandanus is a great feature plant in the garden. I have many patches of different ages and they look great.
