Cherimoya - Fina de Jete

$99.00

This cherimoya is an excellent fruit with juicy, sweet flesh. When mature, black speckles may appear under skin. Matures mid-season. Spain's main commercial variety.The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation they will bounce back

Fingerlime - Pink Ice

$34.00 ($34.00-$149.00 choose a size)

A medium size shrub producing red to burgundy coloured fruits with clear or pink pearls of juice inside. The aroma of the fruits is similar to ruby grapefruit, and is perfect for cocktails and drinks, as well as cooking. Bears fruit from summer to autumn, with the fruits being ready to harvest when they come very easily off the branch without any effort. It is a great variety for growing in containers and in warm courtyards, and does best in full sun. Water thoroughly in spring and summer.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$49.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.

Wampee - Yeem Pay

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

Grafted elongated, large yellow skinned variety. Heavy cropping and very sweet. It is also a highly valued backyard tree in southern China. The fruits are highly aromatic and have a sweet tangy flavour.

White Sapote - Hawaiian Supreme

$79.00

A heavy cropping tree producing a medium sized fruit with a mild flavour, uniform in shape and good appearance. Casimiroa fruit is reminiscent of vanilla custard mixed with creamy banana and pear.

Lychee - Salathiel

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

Tree has an open dome shape with excellent quality fruit. Well suited to subtropical conditions. Beautiful coloured fruit with very small seed. Needs protection from wind when young. Mid season

TULLY, QLD, Australia

Compact shrub like tree but a bit thorny. It is quite ornamental with interesting fruit. Beautiful colour of vesicles in a fluorescent lime green. I think I prefer the taste of regular lime though.
