Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A)

$79.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Larger and rounder than most other avocado varieties. It has a very dark, almost black skin that only gets darker as it ripens. The flesh is a pale green colour with a creamier consistency than the more common Hass and it has a slightly nutty and creamy taste. It has a medium-sized seed. Lamb Hass is a smaller tree that bears more fruit and it matures later in the season than regular Hass avocados. The symmetrical fruit has pebbly skin with green flecks. This variety has Plant Breeder Rights over it.

Avocado - Bacon (B)

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

Upright vigorous avocado producing pear shaped fruit of medium quality. It is regarded as the most cold hardy variety, sometimes surviving down to -5degC. It does require care to bring this subtropical tree through winter. Worth trying in urban Victoria or South Australia. H March - May

Jujube - Chico

$139.00 ($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.

Nashi Pear - Nijisseiki

$52.95 ($39.00-$52.95 choose a size)

A heavy bearing variety. Medium sized round fruit of excellent eating quality with crisp, white flesh and yellowish-green, transparent skin and moderate sugar content. Will set fruit without pollination however the fruit is smaller.

Carambola Starfruit - Kary

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Excellent flavour, bright skin and juicy flesh with few seeds, bearing a summer and winter crop. It exhibits more cold tolerance than other varieties. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit Carambola trees have an attractive weeping habit, producing a profusion of pink flowers. The 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

Jujube - Li

$139.00 ($119.00-$139.00 choose a size)

Large and round in shape. The texture is crisp and fresh fruit have an excellent flavour. Fruit can be picked at the yellow/green stage however the best flavour is obtained when half the fruit has turned reddish brown. Mature fruits are 40-60mm in diameter. Early - Mid season ripening (Feb-April) Self fertile

As a kid in Mackay there used to be a tamarind tree outside the Slade Point post office. I think it was a life saver as there wasn't much decent food in our house at the time.I feasted on the tamarinds and also eat the leaves.Wonderful nutrition.

I am in north thailand and enjoying a sweet tamarind in season; but one is sweeter than the other; 2 varieties it seems. do you have the sweet one or sour one?

Have since found out that a species of Tamarind is native to this area and this one came all the way from Kyogle. Needless to say I am very happy with my tree and it loves it here. It has taken off and has grown 1m since it was planted last year.

When we were kids we would make a tamarind drink. Make it like a cup of tea, sweetened to tast, refrigerate. Better than cordial. Now living in NSW, I miss Mums beautiful big Tamarind tree.
