Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree (G)

$39.00 ($29.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This golden plum is firm with excellent flavour & texture and a small seed. 350 hours chill. This dwarf plum is an ideal backyard variety and perfect for pots. An excellent all-round variety with the added bonus that it doesn't seem to be attractive to fruit fly as much as other stonefruit. Partially self pollinating but benefits from pollination with Gulf Ruby. Attractive in spring when it is smothered in white blossoms.

Orange - Arnold Blood

$39.00 ($39.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Sweet variety requiring hot dry conditions for best colour. Blood oranges have their own distinctive flavour reminiscent of strawberries. This is the best colouring variety in the sub tropics. New PVR blood orange.

Mamey Sapote

$17.90 ($17.90-$79.00 choose a size)

Underneath the Mamey's leathery coarse brown skin is a brilliantly coloured, sweet and creamy flesh. The salmon-pink flesh has an exotic flavour similar to sweet pumpkin pie with spice. Unripe fruits can be cooked as a vegetable.

Dragon Fruit - Purple Haze

$19.75 ($19.75-$27.00 choose a size)

Red skin and firm, vibrant electric magenta coloured flesh with outstanding flavour. Cross pollinate with Pink Pearl for good fruit set. Fine seeds similar to those of kiwi. Fruits can weigh up to 1kg.

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.

Eucalyptus - Swamp bloodwood

Very happy with my little trees. I've received beautiful healthy plants. Been doing well in pots till I've finally planted them on our farm driveway . Hardy and pretty fast growing once established. Would be great for all the native birds we have around. Tree guards, mulch and watering regularly will set them to a great start.
