Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$49.00 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

Walnut - Placentia

$79.00 ($29.75-$79.00 choose a size)

Medium sized nut with a smooth, thin shell. Tree is heavy bearing with good quality nuts. This grafted variety has a lower chill than most walnut varieties and has cropped well in the Subtropics.

Fingerlime - Pink Ice

$34.00 ($34.00-$149.00 choose a size)

A medium size shrub producing red to burgundy coloured fruits with clear or pink pearls of juice inside. The aroma of the fruits is similar to ruby grapefruit, and is perfect for cocktails and drinks, as well as cooking. Bears fruit from summer to autumn, with the fruits being ready to harvest when they come very easily off the branch without any effort. It is a great variety for growing in containers and in warm courtyards, and does best in full sun. Water thoroughly in spring and summer.

Dwarf Banana - Nathan

$49.00 ($24.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Dwarf Nathan is a cultivar of the popular Cavendish banana. The flavour is sweet and creamy on these small bananas. The tree is super dwarf reaching a maximum height of only 2m so it is perfect for pots, so it can be grown on balconies and in backyards. This makes it well suited to growing in cooler areas.

Jade Vine

$39.00

Prized for its stunning claw shaped turquoise flowers. These can be eaten as a vegetable. This is a vine for subtropical, tropical gardens or a warm indoors position. It does not tolerate frost. It prefers a moist, free draining soil and can grow 2-5m.

Mango - Alphonso

$59.00

Yellow skinned, medium size, only slight fibre, excellent quality. Sets well in subtropics. It is a favourite of India where it is the most desired of all the mangoes. So although not a huge mango the quality and taste is what makes it famous.

Okinawa Spinach

Grows very well (don't expect it to stay in it's neat little spot). Easy to multiply by cutting. I've used plenty in cooking. I would use it raw, but of the variety of greens I have it's not one I would go to out of preference when raw.
