Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$49.00 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

Pistachio - Kerman Female


The female Kerman Pistachio is popular in commercial production and has good flavour with a nice green colour to the kernal. Pistachio trees are best suited to areas with cold winters and hot dry summers, requiring 1000 hours below 7.5 degrees in the winter. Summer and autumn need to be dry to prevent fungal problems. Pistachios are dioecious meaning male and females flowers are produced on separate trees, one of each will be required for fruit set. Spreading habit, wider than it is tall. Pistachios tend toward biennial cropping, meaning they alternately bear lots of nuts one year, then very little the following year

Pistachio - Blue Male


Male pistachio, pollinator for Females. One male will pollinate up to 15 females.

Blue Quandong

Ours outgrew our garden in 6 years. Timber and branches very splitty in even mild breezes. Either be prepared to coppice it HARD, or plant it well away from anything you don't want it to drop branches on. Awesome pioneer, but not really for suburban yard

★★★ 5y ago


Has a great open but shady canopy.  It attracts birds,  Flowers prolifically with lots of blue covered nuts. No problems growing in Sydney

This is a tough little tree, surviving with very poor soil, windy conditions and little water. I love the shape of this grand tree when mature.
