Australian Round Lime

$49.00 ($31.95-$49.00 choose a size)

The round knobbly fruit, usually reaching 3.5-4 cm in diameter have a distinctive and recognisably citrus flavour, with a similar globular texture to the more commonly known Finger Lime. Also known as Dooja or Gympie lime. Occurs naturally on the fringe of lowland sub-tropical rainforests of southeast Qld, from Brisbane northwards. This slender tree can reach up to 15m in height and 6-8m in diameter with multiple trunks, making it the most vigorous of the native citrus. The round lime is suitable for including in cordials, sauces, marmalades and lime flavouring. The skin is very thick (up to 7mm) and has potential for culinary use, such as grating into spice pastes, or for candied peel and may also have potential for essential oil extraction.

Mango - Florigon

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

Definitely the winner in the taste department. The soft sweet flesh melts in your mouth. The fruit has a small seed and virtually no fibre and great flavour. Considered by some to be too small for the market it certainly makes up for its lack of size with taste. Yellow skinned, excellent quality fruits. Sets well in subtropics. Moderately resistant to Anthracnose, susceptible to Black Spot. Average wt. 300g. (Video - Grafting a Florigon Mango)

Mango - Bambaroo

$49.00

Superior grafted selection of Kensington Pride (Bowen Mango). Fruit medium size, orange yellow blush early, very sweet.

Lychee - Wai Chee

$49.00 ($49.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Crops heavily and regularly in subtropical climates with high quality delicious fruit. Compact growth habit. Freshly picked Lychees are absolutely delicious compared to canned or supermarket fruit. Prefers sheltered, rich well drained soil, with lots organic mulch, and cool winters. Late season

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian

$44.00

The small to medium fruit is pale lemon-yellow with smooth thin skin. The flesh is a translucent pale green, tender and juicy with a true acid lime flavour. It is best to pick the fruit green as it can suffer from rot if left to ripen on the tree.The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Dwarf Lemon - Eureka

$44.00

This lemon is probably the most widely grown lemon in the world It is a true sour lemon with a high juice and acid content. Can have some fruit most of the year. With good care the fruit is thin-skinned and virtually seedless. Grafted onto Flying Dragon this is more compact and slower growing than the regular Eureka, growing 2-3m
