A very large fruit, flattened at both ends and with few seeds. A small tree to only 4 metres, it is a prolific bearer of very high quality fruit.

Delicious when eaten as a desert with cream and a touch of Rum or vanilla

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

$79.00 ($79.00-$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.

Grapefruit - Rio Red


The Rio Red has less colour than Star Ruby and the colour of fruit on individual trees can vary considerably. Needs to be harvested soon after maturity.

★★★ 10y ago


Needed a second black sapote to aid in pollination. The specimen from Daley's looked rather weak and spindly and is extremely slow growing in part shade. However, first fruit (just one) in 2013 was delicious, so this variety definitely passes the taste...

I have some great plans for the fruit and the tree will hopefully give us some well positioned shade when it is bigger
