Dwarf Lemon - Eureka


This lemon is probably the most widely grown lemon in the world It is a true sour lemon with a high juice and acid content. Can have some fruit most of the year. With good care the fruit is thin-skinned and virtually seedless. Grafted onto Flying Dragon this is more compact and slower growing than the regular Eureka, growing 2-3m

Dwarf Lemon - Meyer


This popular lemon is not a true lemon but likely to be a natural hybrid between a lemon and an orange. The lower acidity and reduced sourness makes it one of the most widely grown lemons for the home-garden. Very hardy and prolific. The fruits are deep orange-yellow in colour with thin skin and they are very juicy, making them perfect for use in dressings and marinades. The meyer is low in pectin. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Dwarf Orange - Washington Navel

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

The oldest and most popular navel grown in Australia. Has excellent skin colour and taste, and usually produces round fruit. Is inclined to drop fruit and split in some climates. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Dwarf Orange - Cara Cara


This variety was discovered in Venezuela in 1976. It is smaller than many other navel selections but has pink flesh similar to Star Ruby grapefruit. In South Africa it matures slightly earlier than Washington navel. Although Cara Cara has yet to be evaluated fully under Australian conditions there is considerable interest in it locally. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Dwarf Lime - Kaffir

$44.00 ($29.00-$44.00 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 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.

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$40.95 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

Dwarf Lime - Tahitian

I had an old Tahitian lime that had got too old and the root system had started to die off. I wanted another lime but a dwarf variety. Have planted into a hole filled with compost and mycogold. Still a bit cold in Melbourne but looking forward to seeing the first new shoots

This is the Sublime patio Lime. Looks beautiful! have not had any fruit as of yet, over half the leaves dropped off over winter as it gets cold here even with sheltering the plant. But in spring it put on so much new growth it's lusher than ever.

Who doesn't like citrus? Trying to grow a variety of different citrus on my block for some Winter fruit.  Was in blossom upon receipt from Daleys but pruned all off to allow for stronger root and branch growth.
