$17.90 ($4.90-$28.90 choose a size)

The tasty tangy fruit are a refreshing treat eaten raw or can be used in chutneys and sauces. Striking fruit from which the bright red-coated seeds emerge.

This small evergreen tree can be expected to reach only 5-8m in an open garden environment providing a beautiful rich green and shady, spreading crown. Also makes a excellent specimen tub plant as a young tree. The first documentation of the Small Leaf Tamarind tree was in 1891. With only approximately 30 trees left remaining in the wild of Northern NSW this endangered species is attracting quite a bit of attention both amongst bush food enthusiasts and conservationists. A beautiful and easy to manage bush food tree.

Longan - Seedling

$24.75 ($17.75-$59.00 choose a size)

A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet. Seed selected from the superior varieties. Even though not true to type the benefits include a vigorous tree making it more suitable for marginal climates. Cincturing at about 3-4 years of age can force earlier fruiting than normally expected from seedling trees.

Native Tamarind

$4.95 ($4.95-$18.75 choose a size)

This slender tree is crowned with large velvety leaves when young. The fruit of Native Tamarind is yellow-brown and hairy. The flesh is a yellow-orange colour, is sour but pleasant, and has been used in making jams. Bird attracting.

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.
