Longan - Chompoo

$69.00

A Thai variety with large, high quality fruit with a faint pink tinge in the flesh. Relatively small seed. Longans are closely related to Lychees, and are highly regarded in Thailand. Generally hardier and quick growing than the lychee.

Black Sapote - Colossal

$69.00

Seedling selection from Kyogle, very large fruit and self pollinating. Seedless when not pollinated. Closely related to the Persimmon this attractive glossy foliaged tree produces a fruit often called the 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Delicious when eaten as a desert with cream and a touch of Rum or vanilla.

Soursop - Kyogle

$69.00 ($69.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This grafted selection was made from a tree cropping in a frost free region of Kyogle. The fresh flesh is juicy and slightly acid producing a rich creamy thirst quenching juice. Also known as Graviola or Guanaban. Prefers a tropical climate but worth trying in marginal climates by the enthusiast fruit grower. But its more than just a sweet treat. Graviola has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, too. This has led some scientists to explore graviola as potential treatment options for a range of serious illnesses, including cancer.Although some laboratory studies do indicate that graviola may have anticancer properties, there isnt any clinical evidence that graviola can treat or prevent cancer in humans.Keep reading to find out what the research says about graviola and cancer and what you need to know about graviola supplements.https://www.healthline.com/health/cancer/graviola-cancer

Lychee - Salathiel

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.

Vanilla Vine

$24.00 ($24.00-$39.00 choose a size)

The fermented pod of this climbing orchid is harvested from the Vanilla Vine or orchid, an aromatic sweet scents used to flavour cakes, and perfumes. Must be hand pollinated. The only insect capable of pollinating the blossom is the Melipona, a bee (see video) , native only to Mexico so all plants must be hand pollinated within 12 hours of the flower opening.

Bought one of these about two years ago and have it growing in a pot, just noticed it has big red fruit forming with purple flowers on it. I'm on the Central Coast of NSW, between Sydney & Newcastle, it's been a pretty warm & very humid summer this year.

PADDINGTON, NSW

Growing fast and beautifully in the front. Very sunny and generally quite dry position. Much less red than I expected, but that might be because of too much sun or too little watering. It is also very spiky, more so than normal pineapples.

Pineapple - Red

These are much hardier than normal pineapples and happily fruit in the shade in northern New Zealand. And as a cash crop, the gorgeous flowers-much showier than standard pineapple flowers-can fetch more than the fruit!
