Dwarf Lemon - Meyer

$44.00

This popular lemon is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced sourness makes it one of the most widely grown lemons for the home-garden. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are deep orange-yellow in colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Canistel - Emma

$79.00

Heavy bearing cold hardy selection that bears small - medium sized fruit. Very sweet, mealy textured fruit with complex caramel flavours. The further they ripen, the creamier the flesh becomes

White Sapote - Kampong

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

A self pollinating selection with a compact form and thicker skinned fruits than normal. It is the preferred selection of a rare fruit grower in Bundaberg
