Mango - R2E2

$54.00 ($17.90-$89.00 choose a size)

One of the largest and most attractive fruits with good, sweet flavour. High flesh to seed ratio with very slight fibre. Susceptible to Black Spot and Anthracnose. It has proven to be a consistent cropper over a range of climates. Vigorous growth habit. wt 675gms. It can be purchased as a more expensive grafted variety which will fruit earlier and have a known cultivar or cheaper seedling plants which are more hardy than the grafted selection and these seedling plants although they take longer to fruit and establish. They are more hardy and will be slightly more resistant to cooler temperatures.

Custard Apple - Paxton Prolific

$89.00 ($89.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A PBR selection of the popular Pinks Mammoth variety. It has a low seed count and excellent natural fruit set. This means that, unlike some other varieties, there is no need to laboriously hand pollinate each bloom to achieve a good harvest. Unpruned custard apples grow into very large trees. With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m. This variety is subject to Plant Breeder Rights (PBR).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

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

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

Equal if not better in flavour than the Bowen mango. A semi-dwarf tree making it ideal for backyards, it produced elongated fruits similar to the Nam Doc Mai. The fruits start out with green skin and ripen to yellow with pink-red blushed fruit. Compact, branching, slightly upright tree growing to 3-4m tall and 2-3m wide. Shows good resistance to anthracnose and black spot.

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian

$44.00

The small to medium fruit is pale lemon-yellow with smooth thin skin. The flesh is a translucent pale green, tender and juicy with a true acid lime flavour. It is best to pick the fruit green as it can suffer from rot if left to ripen on the tree.The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Fingerlime - Pink Ice

$34.00 ($34.00-$149.00 choose a size)

A medium size shrub producing red to burgundy coloured fruits with clear or pink pearls of juice inside. The aroma of the fruits is similar to ruby grapefruit, and is perfect for cocktails and drinks, as well as cooking. Bears fruit from summer to autumn, with the fruits being ready to harvest when they come very easily off the branch without any effort. It is a great variety for growing in containers and in warm courtyards, and does best in full sun. Water thoroughly in spring and summer.

Avocado - Secondo (A)

2017 produced 65 massive fruit each over 550g. Tree is now 6 years old and benefits from winter pruning. It is definitely a B group variety, hundreds of bees last year did all the pollination. Getting my own hive soon.

Avocado - Secondo (A)

My Secondo is actually a type B. Opens as female in afternoon then as male following morning. For better pollination collect some pollen on a small camel hair brush in the morning and then spread to female flower in PM.

Is Secondo upright or spreading? How hard would it be to keep it at 4m, growing in pretty near ideal condiions? Correy?

Avocado - Secondo (A)

The Secondo can happily fruit without a B-Type Avocado making it ideal for home orchardists who just want one tree. Perhaps this is because it's parents have one as a B-Type the Sharwill and the other an A-Type the Hass.
