Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$99.00 ($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.

Panama Berry

$14.90 ($14.90-$79.00 choose a size)

A highly ornamental tree that bears small red berries within its first year. Blossoming and producing all year round, the flowers are white and followed by small red fruit that is sweet with the taste of caramel. The trees are exceptionally attractive with long spreading branches that often droop down to the ground and soft weeping foliage. Trees are very fast growing and drought hardy once established. They can grow 5-10m in ideal conditions but respond well to being cut back so it is possible to keep them smaller than this making it easier to browse on the tempting little fruits. Panama berries will happily grow and fruit in large containers provided they have a good quality mix and a healthy layer of organic mulch to hold the moisture in. It is the ideal backyard tree if you have children as it is a lovely little shade tree as well as producing tempting little sweet treats. Used fresh or in jams.Weed Warning: Panama Berry is regarded as an environmental weed in northern Queensland and on Christmas Island.

Black Sapote - Maher

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

A very large fruit, flattened at both ends and with few seeds. A small tree to only 4 metres, it is a prolific bearer of very high quality fruit.

Black Sapote - Superb

$74.00 ($74.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A selection originating from north Qld. As the name suggests it is a superb quality fruit. Tends to be seedless if not cross pollinated. Heavy bearing. Also called 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Delicious Trees can be medium to large and cross pollination is beneficial for fruit set. New growth is a light lime green/yellow colour which darkens as the leaves mature.

Mulberry - Lena


Selected for good quality, large, juicy, sweet fruit, Lena is a large, vigorous shade tree suited to temperate, subtropical and some tropical areas. Annual pruning to keep contained will promote fruit production as fruit is produced on new growth. Should produce a second crop in late summer if pruned in late spring. Best results when grown in full sun with ample moisture.

Black Sapote - Bernicker

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

Australian Round Lime

You should try the Gympie lime in gin and tonic - they are out-of-this-world wonderful - ours is grafted onto a blood orange and just had it first crop (50 fruits) at Spencer facing south on the banks of the mighty Hawkesbury

I have had this tree in my front yard in Melbourne for some years now frosts do not worry it and fruit is abundant as are the thorns. Very slow to grow but that slow growth is not reflected in fruit production.Very attractive foliage bees love the flowers

I was going through a 'lime phase' and saw this little beauty at the nursery. I didn't know what this variety is but from the description, it seem to be ok for Melbourne weather. I put this tree into the ground next to my backyard fence. So far it has ...

The only lime that stays on the tree, the fruit can be picked and peels easily like mandarin. Taste is slight sweet  and sour with distinct lime flavour

Australian Round Lime

Beware of vicious needle like thorns. Unlike the finger lime, I found this one to be very slow growing, despite adequate care. Fruit very useful for Asian food and flavouring. Heavy bearer.
