Dwarf Persimmon - Ichikikijiro (NA)

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

Large flat fruit of excellent quality. Being a dwarf variety it is well suited to backyards but is also a good commercial variety. Mostly seedless fruit, Non astringent.

Pistachio - Sirora - Female


High yielding female tree, pair with a male for pollination. Grows to be a small tree or shrub. Best suited to areas with cold winters and hot dry summers, requiring 1000 hours below 7.5 degrees in the winter. Summer and autumn need to be dry to prevent fungal problems. Pistachios are dioecious meaning male and females flowers are produced on separate trees, one of each will be required for fruit set. Spreading habit, wider than it is tall. Pistachios tend toward biennial cropping, meaning they alternately bear lots of nuts one year, then very little the following year

Dwarf Persimmon - Fuyu (NA)

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

Fuyu is a semi-dwarf variety, well suited to growing in small backyards and can be kept to 2m with pruning. The fruit is large and flat, orange-red in colour with a sweet, mild flavour. Great eaten crunchy but just luscious when left to go soft. Besides producing delicious fruit, Persimmons are highly ornamental with their beautiful autumn foliage. Non astringent, so can be eaten when still hard. When young, protect from hot afternoon sun, and when dormant, from wet conditions. Seedless when grown on their own. If cross pollinating with another variety they can have seeds in the flesh as shown in the display picture.

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.
