Massive fruits up to 30cm long, ripen in late summer. Inside are numerous seeds each covered with soft, sweet, tropically flavoured flesh. Fruit attach to the trunk and branches and fall from this large tropical tree when ready. Eat when the thick skin is soft to the touch. Seeds are high in a cyanogenic glycoside and are highly toxic and must not being eaten without extensive leaching and/or fermentation to remove it. Its natural habitat is the lowland humid tropics, so warm temperatures and high rainfall are needed to grow successfully. Trees are dioecious, meaning male and female flowers are on separate trees, so grow three to ensure you have at least one female. A beautiful tropical shade tree, which can grow to 50 m in a forest habitat, 10-15 in the open. Be wary of sitting under the tree when fruit are ripening between January and May, they fall heavily and without warning

Achacha - Grafted


Our local selection of the Achacha, grafted for earlier fruiting. Fruiting in our Biodome here in the Nursery. The fruit are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Very moreish. Fruit should be picked mature, as it does not ripen further on storage. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group



An African fruit that can be eaten raw or cooked. Fruit is pleasant with a sub acid flavour. Trees also produce a good amount of biomass and are well suited to agroforestry.

Cherimoya - Sofia


A prolific fruiting selection with white flesh that is sweet and rich with a smooth, custardy vanilla flavour.Has performed exceedingly well in Adelaide SA.Originating in Quito, Ecuador.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
