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 smother in white blossoms.

Jujube - Chico

$124.00 ($109.00-$139.00 choose a size)

Compact and bushy, perfect for pots with round fruit flattened on the bottom. Look similar to a small apple. Pick when the whole fruit (or at least 80%) has just turned brownish red. Texture is crisp and light we consider it an excellent fresh or dried variety. Fruit size 35-45mm. Developed at the Chico institute in California, this is an early fruiting variety. (Jan - March) Cross pollinate for best results.

Mulberry - White Shahtoot

$59.00 ($24.00-$129.00 choose a size)

Large, sweet fruit can reach up to 10cm in length. Delicious eaten fresh but can also be sundried and eaten as a sweet. Medium sized, spreading tree with a weeping habit, excellent shade tree. Birds love them too so make sure you cover them if you don't want to share. You can also get multiple crops by pruning immediately after your first crop.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$21.00 ($21.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

I bought these as we often use lemongrass in cooking. I'm hoping the two provide enough for our needs. Both arrived well and are flourishing.

No maintenance plant which needs regular watering (I have mine in a water well pot).  Regular harvesting will mean you can supply everyone you know with lemongrass, and still have loads left over.  Freeze or dry stalks for cooking; dry leaves for tea...

Lemon Grass

My friend´s lemongrass flourished in partial shade and mine in a sunny window. Great pot plant. If your plant runs to seed, gather and spread in a tall or bowl pot. In less than a year you get an elegant fountaining piece for indoors or out!

This lemon grass is just delicious. We do alot of Thai cooking and it is an essential ingredient. Very easy to grow, thrives on neglect. The picture was taken after I had cut a whole heap out for friends. It is a prolific bearer.

grows extremely well - it is in a garden bed with other herbs about 1m from the base of a lemon tree. The soil is mushroom compost and we have some mulch on top. Needs to be declumped if not harvested frequently.

In hot conditions this plant flourishes. Place in boiling water to infuse the taste then place in your fridge for a great tasting cold drink in the summer. Or you can drink it hot as a herbal tea.

Grows like a weed in warm, moist conditions. Divide clumps to refresh plants and clean up dead leaves. Low maintenance herb. Nice lemony flavour. Add to Asian cooking and makes a refreshing tea.
