Dwarf Tangelo - Minneola


A dwarfing mandarin-grapefruit cross that is the juiciest of all citrus. Flavour is very rich and best eaten when fully ripe. The Dwarf Tangelo is a heavy cropper. For pollination, any early flowering mandarin will assist, for example Satsumas, Nules, Emperor or Imperial.

Mango - Florigon

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

Definitely the winner in the taste department. The soft sweet flesh melts in your mouth. The fruit has a small seed and virtually no fibre and great flavour. Considered by some to be too small for the market it certainly makes up for its lack of size with taste. Yellow skinned, excellent quality fruits. Sets well in subtropics. Moderately resistant to Anthracnose, susceptible to Black Spot. Average wt. 300g. (Video - Grafting a Florigon Mango)

Mandarin - Okitsu wase (Satsuma)


Seedless, good flavour, low acid and high TSS. Satsumas are cold hardy and form a compact growing tree. They are the earliest mandarins in the marketplace. .

Lemon - Eureka

$39.00 ($39.00-$49.00 choose a size)

This lemon is probably the most widely grown lemon in the world It is a true sour lemon with a high juice and acid content. Can have some fruit most of the year. The fruit is thin-skinned and virtually seedless. An almost thornless variety makes harvesting, pruning and growing the Eureka an easy choice. It is a highly productive variety of large flavourful Lemons. The main crop will be harvested during Winter. If you like to use lemons in your Kitchen then you could juice any excess lemons and store in the freezer for later, make some preserved lemons or share with friends.

Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 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

Pluot Plum - Black Adder

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

Graham Richards kindly gave us this low chill Pluot Plum to trial from his low chill breeding program. First fruiting this season, excellent flavour and texture. A Pluot is a cross between an Apricot and Plum- however more Plum characteristics are present. The Black Adder has Purplish- black skin with an amber flesh turning a deeper colour when very ripe. Pluots normally require cross pollination to set fruit. Try cross pollinating with another Pluot or a Japanese Plum variety- like a Mariposa. We are currently assesing its ability to self pollinate and will update our growing advice with those results. Ensure adequate sunlight, free draining fertile soil for maximum yields and healthy productive trees. Being low chill, it will produce fruit where winters are mild but may still not thrive in areas with hot summers. Protection may be beneficial.

Healthy looking plant, hopefully grows well. Neighbour across the road has one, quite old now, produces regular fruit

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

It makes delicious lime gelati. Mix up a syrup of 220g of sugar with one cup of water. Bring to boil for one minute ,cool and add pulp from 3 limes and a cup of cream or yogurt. Freeze to a mush,beat and refreeze or use ice cream maker.

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.
