Pollinators for the Avocado - Fuerte (B)

Cross Pollinate with one of these 'A' varieties for fruit set

Avocado - Hass (A)

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Most popular variety due to both its superior taste and excellent keeping qualities. Medium sized, pear-shaped fruit has an excellent creamy, flesh. The leathery rough dark-purple skin turns to black when ripe. H Aug-Dec. Hass is an A type variety and for good fruit set a B type variety is needed for cross pollination. Suggested varieties to grow alongside a Hass are Shepard, Sharwill, Fuerte, Bacon (if you're in a cooler climate)and Linda. Happy fresh avocado smashing.

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A)

$79.00 ($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.

Avocado - Reed (A)

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Large, round , thick skinned variety with a smooth, green skin. They have a mild to rich flavour and have a good storing ability once cut and placed in the fridge. They are also a great choice for using in salads as they tend not to go mushy as does a Hass when very ripe. H Aug - Dec

Avocado - Secondo (A) ®

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

Superior flavour, with smooth, creamy flesh and pear-shaped, green-skinned, fruits that are textured like hass. A vigorous variety that commences fruiting in its 2nd year. Self pollinating. H Jul - Dec This is a local selection with Hass and Sharwill as parents that was selected by Daleys and is proving an excellent backyard variety as well as being our nursery favourite.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)

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

A small tree to about 4m popular for the back yard. A moderate cropper of medium sized rich, high quality fruit. Pear-shaped with dark green skin using Guatamalan rootstock. Aug - Oct Does best if grown with a B type pollinator.

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A)

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

Larger and rounder than most other avocado varieties. It has a very dark, almost black skin that only gets darker as it ripens. The flesh is a pale green colour with a creamier consistency than the more common Hass and it has a slightly nutty and creamy taste. It has a medium-sized seed. Lamb Hass is a smaller tree that bears more fruit and it matures later in the season than regular Hass avocados. The symmetrical fruit has pebbly skin with green flecks. This variety has Plant Breeder Rights over it.

Avocado - Choquette (A)

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

A giant fruit weighting over 1kg. Good eating variety with smooth flesh and a creamy, rich flavour.

$37.00 ($37.00-$69.00 choose a size)

  Special  

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.

Pistachio - Blue Male

$89.00

Male pistachio, pollinator for Females. One male will pollinate up to 15 females.

Pistachio - Kerman Female

$89.00

The female Kerman Pistachio is popular in commercial production and has good flavour with a nice green colour to the kernal. Pistachio trees are 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
  Special  

Achacha

$39.00 ($19.75-$129.00 choose a size)

A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. 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

Avocado - Fuerte (B)

A beautiful avocado tree that prefers a very well draining soil that is enriched with manure or compost, but will not tolerate too much watering ( wet feet ). Mulch well and grow in a sunny position. Feed with a slow release fertiliser every 3-4 months.

LESCHENAULT, WA, Australia

It's a Type B and easy to grow. It flowers a bit too early in our cooler climate so fruit set is not great and a few are cocktail avocados. I planted it for cross pollinating our Type A's - but it tends to flower a bit earlier than all of them. It is ...

The Avocado pear likes plenty of water. It has been very dry of late. Fortunately, I had some spare water which I was able to use on my 2 trees as they were in the early fruiting period and I risked losing new fruit just setting. Now they are looking q...
