Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($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.

Lime - West Indian Seedling

Tastier than Tahitian and perfect for cocktails and mixed with soda water. Makes a really great marmalade. I found the tree to be resilient, growing and fruiting fast and prolifically. Many spikes! Recommend trimming away the lower branches.

Lime - West Indian Seedling

I planted a West Indian Lime around 6 years ago in a warm sunny position in my garden - it must like the position as it fruits prolifically. Beware the spikes!

Taste is tangy and smaller than tahitian. First couple of years it focused on establishing itself (bushiness) then by 4th year height has taken effect and getting only a small amount of crop and flowering. There are thorns. Espaliered, but not as easy ...

Patio Lime that seems to be growing vigorously however I didn't see many flowers this year and it didn't set any fruit. Has had some problems with aphids, leaf miner and mineral difficiency. I think I've solved them by using occassional eco oil sprays ...
