Dwarf Mandarin - Emperor


The fruit has a pale orange skin that is inclined to be puffy. Excellent flavour however the fruit can be prone to drying if harvest is delayed. Loose skin that is very easy to peel. Most popular mid season variety. Flying Dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen. Trees will grow to about half the normal citrus size. Flying Dragon rootstock also adds cold hardiness and grows well in heavier soils, like Trifoliatia rootstock.

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.

Partially self pollinating but benefits from pollination with Gulf Ruby. Attractive in spring when it is smothered in white blossoms.

EASTWOOD, NSW, Australia

Heat loving, and thriving under full Australian sun. As a precaution I've been watering daily, and it has doubled in size. I bought 1 arrowroot plant from Daley's and I received 2 plants in a pot. Since purchase another shoot has come up. It is current...

Looks like a canna lilly but apparently the root is the source of that cooking powder and flavour. I look forward to seeing what sort of flowers it has.
