Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Dwarf Jaboticaba - Costada

$39.00 ($29.00-$59.00 choose a size)

A beautiful, ornamental tree that produces tasty, sweet fruit. Extremely rare. Is known to fruit in two years in the tropics and perfect for pots. Growing in temperate areas is experimental.

Wax Jambu - Pink

$49.00 ($29.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Fast growing tree, attractive pink pear shaped fruit that are crunchy and refreshing on a hot summers day. Grows and crops well here in the subtropics as long as they are protected from frosts when young. They generally don't have seeds but may on rare occasions, depending on pollination.

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.

Dwarf Coconut Green

Coconuts don't like sustained wet feet or heavy soils, ideally you would procure old coconuts and husks to plant them in, last one I did I put 25 coconuts in the hole along with other goodies.

Dwarf Coconut Green

I bought this Coconut because I live in the Sub-tropics and believe it will fruit in this climate. In addition, a dwarf tree appeals as I do not like climbing ladders or Coconut trees. The Coconut arrived in good condition, ready to plant.

Dwarf Coconut Malay Green

I liked this plant because I grew up with coconut palms in my backyard when in Sri Lanka. Love the coconut water with the young flesh in it. I planted in a large pot without the bottom so I could bury the pot in the ground. I did this because my previous plant died after heavy rain. It was planted directly into the ground. Used sand and potting mix.
