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

Giant Lau Lau

$39.00

This tree is scattered everywhere across the Pacific. Very popular in Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. The giant long glossy leaves make it a spectacular feature before you even spot the fruit. The stunning fruit is bright red and has a crisp apple like flavour, although some can be a little watery. If you have some space in a frost free garden this tree will be a treasure. Even though tropical it grows and fruits well in the North Coast of NSW. With adequate water it grows at a rapid rate reaching up to 6-7m

Fig - Honey

$42.95

Sweet fig with honey/nectar like juice within. Honey figs have a soft texture and fruity flavour. Figs love a warm Mediterranean type climate but will also produce well in subtropical and temperate areas. Give them a sunny position and well drained soil, free from heavy frost, to harvest your own homegrown luscious figs

Yellow Mangosteen

$34.00 ($24.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Yellow Mangosteen is a round fruit with very tart yellow segments. The high acidity makes it ideal for jams and jellies but removing the seed and skin can be time consuming. Easier to grow in the subtropics than the purple mangosteen, but the flavour is altogether different. The tree grows well in full sun and shade. It will tolerate and continue to fruit heavily in drought conditions. The tree is very attractive, with large drooping leaves and a layered form. The fruit can reach 8-10 cm in length and looks highly ornamental when in the tree.
