Ginger QLD

$19.75 ($3.00-$19.75 choose a size)

Hardy ginger variety, very popular in a range of cooking. Aromatic perennial plant with a pungent rhizome that is used as a spice, flavouring, food, and traditional medicine. In cool climates can perform very well as a pot plant and is easy to harvest all year round by digging fresh tubers as you need them. Young rhizome is pink skinned and the texture is much softer. The leafy stems of ginger grow about a metre high and lend a tropical feel to gardens. Provide good amounts of organic matter and keep well watered right through the growing season for best production

Cinnamon - Cassia

$29.00 ($29.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Grown for thousands of years in China for both culinary and medicinal purposes and the source of the preferred cinnamon spice in North America, the flavour is stronger and is suitable for both sweet and savoury dishes. Trees are coppiced every 2-3 years and the inner bark is harvested and rolled into quills. The flower buds are also used as a sweet flavouring. Cassia cinnamon is distinguished from true Cinnamon by the thickness of the harvested quills and by the scent of the leaves. These are high in cinnamaldehyde, the source of the cinnamon scent, whereas true Cinnamon leaves smell like cloves. An attractive tree. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)

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

A small tree to about 4m popular for the back yard. A moderate cropper of medium sized rich, high quality fruit. Pear-shaped with dark green skin using Guatamalan rootstock. Aug - Oct Does best if grown with a B type pollinator.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$49.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.

Rollinia - Brazilian Custard Apple

$29.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

A relative of the cherimoya this plant has its origins in tropical America. The fruit about 100mm in diameter has a creamy juicy and delicious flesh, according to some tasting like lemon meringue pie. Fruits within 4 years from seed. Seed selected from extremely sweet and flavoursome fruit with firm white flesh and few seeds.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back
