Carambola Starfruit - Giant Siam

$49.00 ($49.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A very large fruited selection with sweet juicy flesh. The juicy transparent flesh has a citrus quality with a floral accent and is delicious eaten fresh, made into juice or into a delicious chutney Carambola trees have an attractive weeping habit, producing a profusion of pink flowers. 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

Carambola Starfruit - Thai Knight


A sweet self fertile variety with a bright orange colour to the fruit. Carambolas are refreshing and juicy. Thai Knight has as a medium sized fruit. This is an excellent selection with a really good flavour. This is a great choice if you are not sure which one to choose.

Loquat - Nagasakiwase

$49.00 ($49.00-$79.00 choose a size)

The best Japanese variety so far, it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. Earliest variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size. The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April / May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop has a much larger crop and better fruit size.

Nashi Pear - Hosui


A very large, juicy, sweet, low acid, bronze-skinned pear that is one of the most popular varieties. Hosui is partially self-pollinating however will benefit from cross pollination with Kosui.

Nashi Pear - Nijisseiki

$44.00 ($39.00-$44.00 choose a size)

A heavy bearing variety. Medium sized round fruit of excellent eating quality with crisp, white flesh and yellowish-green, transparent skin and moderate sugar content. Will set fruit without pollination however the fruit is smaller.

Carambola Starfruit - Arkin

My mother grew them when I was a teenager, & I just love the quirky shape. My husband often takes a home made fruit salad to work for his lunch, & the reason I chose these trees was to add a lovely flavour & interesting shapes to the mix. Both trees I purchased were planted straight away into pots, to get them started. They were very wilted looking for many, many weeks, but just recently I noticed both have a multitude of new shoots sprouting - so it's very exciting. Thank you.
