Abiu

$46.95 ($29.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A smooth, brilliant yellow fruit with sweet translucent flesh. It has delicious flavour reminiscent of creme caramel and a texture that is extremely smooth and luscious. The fruit is considered a delicacy for those who can grow it successfully, and it thrives in warm subtropical and tropical conditions.It is native to South America and can be found growing wild throughout much of Amazonia. In Brazil the pulp from the plant is used medicinally, to relieve coughs and bronchitis. Of course, most people love the fruit's flavour, which is enhanced when eaten slightly chilled. Cut in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon and enjoy. It can be used to flavour ice cream and make other desserts.

Carambola Starfruit - Daleys Sweet Gold

$79.00

A very sweet, juicy selection that produces an abundant crop of medium sized fruit. Hard to surpass the flavour of this Daleys Nursery selection.

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

Rollinia - Brazilian Custard Apple

$19.75 ($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.

  Special  

Acerola - Florida Sweet

$34.00 ($14.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This bright red cherry like fruit has varying tastes during different stages as it ripens. When fully ripe the fruit is juicy and aromatic with its acid content giving it a sweet acid apple-like flavour. The tree can produce a number or crops each year, making for quite a long harvest season. Our selection is called the acerola Florida Sweet Cherry and is a pleasant eating variety that is not too sour. The acerola is well suited to pot culture where it can be kept to a smaller size. It could also be grown this way in cooler climates where it can be moved to a warmer position in the winter. A word of warning the foliage of the plant is covered in tiny irritating stinging hairs that can produce an allergic reaction. When pruning your trees wear a long sleeved shirt and a pair of gloves.

PLanted as a seed either 2011 or 2012. Very very slow growing. I kind of ignored it for years after it established. Now hoping we might finally finally be close to fruiting!

Very easy to grow from seed. They grow slowly,though grow taller in semi shade. They are quite tough plants, and easy to transplant if required. No problem growing in Sydney.

It seems to be a slow grower but that said, Melbourne is hardly replicating the Bolivian Amazonian basin climate.

Slow growing, new growth seems to suffer a bit from the cold and died back on one of the 4 seedlings.One seedling tested in a greenhouse seems prone to either UV burn or fungus, wouldn't recommend placing them inside one.

These fruit are mind-blowing! The tree has quite a nice habit and is supposed to grow well here. I have two advanced seedlings and have grown a number of seedlings myself and all grow/germinate very well in Brisbane.

Such an attractive prolific tree and very pleasant fruit. Thick skinned so not a problem with fruit fly.Trouble is you need two and they grow quite tall for a small backyard garden. I could always keep them trimmed to size :)

Slow growing at first, but speeds up over time. Provide shade when young. Pigeon pea is a great way to do this.
