Yuzu - Grafted

$59.00 ($59.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Native to China, the Yuzu has been used and cultivated in this region for thousands of years. The fruit is tart, resembling a grapefruit with mandarin overtones. It is rarely eaten as a fresh fruit but is used to makes sauces, preserves and a popular yuzu vinegar. In Korea thinly sliced fruits are combined with sugar and honey to make a thick marmalade like syrup. Yuzu kosho is a spicy Japanese sauce made from green or ripe yellow yuzu zest, chillis and salt. The yuzu is more cold tolerant than most other citrus, being able to tolerate to -5 degrees

Dwarf Mango - Alison Red

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

Lime - Kaffir

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

Native to Indonesia but widely grown worldwide as a backyard shrub for its aromatic leaves and rind that add a unique flavour to Thai cooking. Well suited to container growing. Also known as the Makrut Lime. The rough bumpy fruit is inedible but its oil has strong insecticidal properties. Kaffir lime rind is an essential ingredient in a Thai curry paste, a teaspoons of Kaffir lime rind is used in both red and green Kaffir lime gives the curry a very distinctive flavour. The leaves are added to the curry once it is cooking and can also be added when cooking rice.

Lemonade Tree

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

This delicious, sweet, juicy fruit tastes like lemonade and can be eaten as a fresh fruit straight off the tree. The tree often has thorns and bears several heavy crops each year.

Pummelo - Nam Roi

$42.95

A recently imported Pummelo from Vietnam, where it is a very popular seedless variety. Pummelos are similar to grapefruits, but larger and much sweeter. Most adaptable citrus to tropical areas. Grows very well in subtropical climates too- like we have here at Daleys in Kyogle. Very large fruits!

Carambola Starfruit - Kary

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

Excellent flavour, bright skin and juicy flesh with few seeds, bearing a summer and winter crop. It exhibits more cold tolerance than other varieties. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit 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

It's only a young plant, but it's thriving amongst my other citrus varieties. I'm looking forward to sampling the fruit in a year or two - probably as chunky candied peel.
