Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A)

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

Dwarf tree producing a rounded fruit with the later crop being more pear-shaped. The thick flesh has a smooth-texture, good flavour and high oil content. It shows some cold tolerance and bears consistently heavy crops. H June to August The fruit is medium sized with green leathery pliable skin and a small seed. This is an excellent choice for backyards, higher yields in trees that are cross pollinated with a 'B'variety avocado near by.

Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree (G)

$39.00 ($29.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This golden plum is firm with excellent flavour & texture and a small seed. 350 hours chill. This dwarf plum is an ideal backyard variety and perfect for pots. An excellent all-round variety with the added bonus that it doesn't seem to be attractive to fruit fly as much as other stonefruit. Partially self pollinating but benefits from pollination with Gulf Ruby. Attractive in spring when it is smothered in white blossoms.

Fig White Adriatic

$39.00 ($39.00-$69.00 choose a size)

A green skinned medium to large sized fig with sweet, red flesh that has a superb flavour. When tree ripened this fig is unsurpassed with its rich strawberry flesh. Peels very easily when ripe.

Longan - Kohala (Marcot)

$69.00 ($69.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Large fruit with an aromatic sweet to spicy taste. Early season heavy cropping variety. Closely related to Lychees, Longans are highly valued in South east Asia. They are hardier and quicker growing.

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue

$27.00 ($18.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Sunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous blueberry features showy hot pink flowers that fade to white in spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-fertile. It is is a Southern Highbush with the low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for the subtropics, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to patios and gardens in cooler areas.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

It grows well in my back garden and with a few crowns, I will have asparagus next season.

Illawarra, NSW

Very healthy crowns arrived last month (July 2012), dug an enormous trench in my clay soil and dug in a barrow of compost, gypsum and some lime. Sprouting and the brittle shoots need to be protected from my crazy kittens...

It didn't exactly die... It was one of the first things I bought, as crowns, and I planted them out years ago when we first got here. The best, deepest, most permanent soil and position for asparagus was in the gully down in the bottom paddock, fenced ...

I bought these as two year old plants. I resisted the tempation to harvest them this year, so next year they will be in full form. 25 plants in total. I'll be picking them at four years of age.

Crows Nest, QLD, Australia

Planted and left unharvested first season.  Cut down and mulched after tops died off, cow manure added over winter.  Second season fantastic!  Coming into our third and we are thrilled with them.  9 of 10 thrived, replaced 1 crown.

Best hilled for better drainage. Remove seed heads as it can easily become a weed in warmer areas. Delicious lightly steamed and served with extra-virgin olive oil, chopped basil and cracked black pepper.
