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.

Wax Jambu - Red

$49.00 ($34.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Red waxy skin with crisp white flesh. Highly ornamental as well as sweet and tasty. Fast growing tree bearing attractive red pear shaped fruit that is crunchy and refreshing on a hot summers day. A highly ornamental fruit due to its striking red colour. They generally don't have seeds but may on rare occasions, depending on pollination.

Wampee - Guy Sam

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

This grafted variety has a sweet tangy aromatic flavour. Wampees are a handsome foliage evergreen tree grown for Summer ripe fruit with grape like flesh that hang in bunches. When grown on its own the fruit is seedless. Excellent tree for the subtropics and can be kept under 3 metres with pruning.

Longan - Seedling

$19.75 ($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.

African Breadfruit

$24.90

Young fruits are cooked as a vegetable. The seeds from the mature fruit are ground into a meal known as breadfruit flour which can be made into bread, pasta and snacks. Dried seeds can be fried or roasted and eaten as a snack. The tree thrives in tropical and subtropical climates and is fast growing and much hardier than the breadfruit. The wood is used for furniture, firewood and can be processed into paper. It is native to riverbanks and waterways so can be used for erosion control and as a source of mulch. The sap of the male tree is caustic and toxic

Pangium

$17.90 ($17.90-$39.00 choose a size)

Massive fruits up to 30cm long, ripen in late summer. Inside are numerous seeds each covered with soft, sweet, tropically flavoured flesh. Fruit attach to the trunk and branches and fall from this large tropical tree when ready. Eat when the thick skin is soft to the touch. Seeds are high in a cyanogenic glycoside and are highly toxic and must not being eaten without extensive leaching and/or fermentation to remove it. Its natural habitat is the lowland humid tropics, so warm temperatures and high rainfall are needed to grow successfully. Trees are dioecious, meaning male and female flowers are on separate trees, so grow three to ensure you have at least one female. A beautiful tropical shade tree, which can grow to 50 m in a forest habitat, 10-15 in the open. Be wary of sitting under the tree when fruit are ripening between January and May, they fall heavily and without warning
