Grumichama - Black

$22.90 ($21.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Acerola - Florida Sweet

$14.90 ($14.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This bright red cherry like fruit has varying tastes during different stages as it ripens. When fully ripe the fruit is juicy and aromatic with its acid content giving it a sweet acid apple-like flavour. The tree can produce a number or crops each year, making for quite a long harvest season. Our selection is called the acerola Florida Sweet Cherry and is a pleasant eating variety that is not too sour. The acerola is well suited to pot culture where it can be kept to a smaller size. It could also be grown this way in cooler climates where it can be moved to a warmer position in the winter. A word of warning the foliage of the plant is covered in tiny irritating stinging hairs that can produce an allergic reaction. When pruning your trees wear a long sleeved shirt and a pair of gloves.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($23.90-$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.

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


$39.00 ($19.75-$129.00 choose a size)

A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Fruit should be picked mature as it does not ripen further on storage. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group

All 3 arrived with half brown leaves. Two are thriving (one had 3 half leaves left and came good in all this rain! with 15? new leaves) and one is still noncommittal about whether it wants to live or not. I have hope.

I had one previously for many years but lost it. My husband (who passed away in 2008) enjoyed the fruit from it for many years and I wanted another one. Thank you for your follow up.

Painfully slow growing. I had to wait 8 years before mine fruited but boy, once they get started! Fruit is like a leathery skinned, musky grape. Makes a great wine. Do not allow plant to dry out. Protect from insects and don't hold you breath.
