Cinnamon Tree

$49.00 ($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

Jujube - Chico

$124.00 ($109.00-$139.00 choose a size)

Compact and bushy, perfect for pots with round fruit flattened on the bottom. Look similar to a small apple. Pick when the whole fruit (or at least 80%) has just turned brownish red. Texture is crisp and light we consider it an excellent fresh or dried variety. Fruit size 35-45mm. Developed at the Chico institute in California, this is an early fruiting variety. (Jan - March) Cross pollinate for best results.

Jujube - Sherwood

$124.90 ($124.90-$149.00 choose a size)

The Sherwood jujube is considered to be one of the largest and best flavored jujubes, with fruit growing up to 5cm. The Sherwood is a thornless jujube tree producing very dense growth with a columnar, upright tree shape. Late season variety. Cross pollinate for best results.

Pandanus - Edible

$99.00 ($24.90-$99.00 choose a size)

Widely cultivated for use in Asian cooking and basket making. It has a nutty fragrance and is most commonly used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food. Also useful in flower arrangements. A low growing plant to 1m with long narrow blade like leaves and woody aerial roots. In tropical climates it can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping. Outside of the tropics, well worth trying as indoor plant in winter with a warm, sunny aspect. Allow the plant to dry out over the winter months.

Vanilla Vine

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.

Blueberry - Gimme 5

$22.90 ($22.90-$49.00 choose a size)

A sweet, low chill, self pollinating Rabbiteye variety. This selection has been trialled and developed on the North Coast of NSW and is suitable for commercial and backyard production. A vigorous growing upright bush with medium to large flavourful berries. Showing less susceptibility to blueberry rust than other varieties. Blueberries prefer a moist, acidic soil and will grow well in full sun to part shade- protection from hot afternoon sun can be beneficial during Summer. Fruit yield will increase with cross pollination with another rabbiteye variety such as Powderblue, Brightwell, Rahi, Tifblue, Maru. One of the best fruits you can grow. Blueberries grow very well in containers or in the ground- provided the soil is acidic or amended to be so.

Sugar Herb - Stevia

I've found that when using fresh Stevia, it works better if it is boiled. So I put it in water in the microwave and keep the leaves in my drink, since they keep leaching sweetness.
