Achacha

$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

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 smothered in white blossoms.

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.

Avocado - Noela

$99.00

This variety produces huge oval fruits that can weight 1-2 kg. One fruit is almost large enough to feed the family! It has superb flavour and delicious smooth flesh. The selection was made from a seedling tree growing in Sunnybank, Qld. Unfortunately, we have not made an assessment as to whether it is A or B, as strong flowering needs to be observed carefully

Avocado - Secondo (A) ®

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

Superior flavour, with smooth, creamy flesh and pear-shaped, green-skinned, fruits that are textured like hass. A vigorous variety that commences fruiting in its 2nd year. Self pollinating. H Jul - Dec This is a local selection with Hass and Sharwill as parents that was selected by Daleys and is proving an excellent backyard variety as well as being our nursery favourite.

Canistel - Emma

$79.00

Heavy bearing cold hardy selection that bears small - medium sized fruit. Very sweet, mealy textured fruit with complex caramel flavours. The further they ripen, the creamier the flesh becomes
