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.

Custard Apple - Paxton Prolific

$89.00 ($89.00-$99.00 choose a size)

A PBR selection of the popular Pinks Mammoth variety. It has a low seed count and excellent natural fruit set. This means that, unlike some other varieties, there is no need to laboriously hand pollinate each bloom to achieve a good harvest. Unpruned custard apples grow into very large trees. With dedicated, twice yearly pruning it is possible to restrict tree height and spread to 3-4m. This variety is subject to Plant Breeder Rights (PBR).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

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Equal if not better in flavour than the Bowen mango. A semi-dwarf tree making it ideal for backyards, it produced elongated fruits similar to the Nam Doc Mai. The fruits start out with green skin and ripen to yellow with pink-red blushed fruit. Compact, branching, slightly upright tree growing to 3-4m tall and 2-3m wide. Shows good resistance to anthracnose and black spot.

Longan - Kohala (Marcot)

$69.00 ($69.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Large fruit with an aromatic sweet to spicy taste. Early season heavy cropping variety. Closely related to Lychees, Longans are highly valued in South east Asia. They are hardier and quicker growing.

Dwarf Apple - Redlove

$49.00 ($49.00-$89.00 choose a size)

Stunning and unique red flesh are the highlight of this new variety of apple. It is a beautiful backyard tree to grow, producing an attractive flush of burgundy coloured spring growth, dark bark and deep red skin also make this a pretty tree. Blackspot and powdery mildew resistant it only grow to about 2.5m and is perfect for pots. Pollinators - Granny Smith, Pinkabelle and Pink Lady
Special Offer: Buy 1+ @$49.00ea usually:$79.00ea

Soursop - Kyogle

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This grafted selection was made from a tree cropping in a frost free region of Kyogle. The fresh flesh is juicy and slightly acid producing a rich creamy thirst quenching juice. Also known as Graviola or Guanaban. Prefers a tropical climate but worth trying in marginal climates by the enthusiast fruit grower. But its more than just a sweet treat. Graviola has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, too. This has led some scientists to explore graviola as potential treatment options for a range of serious illnesses, including cancer.Although some laboratory studies do indicate that graviola may have anticancer properties, there isnt any clinical evidence that graviola can treat or prevent cancer in humans.Keep reading to find out what the research says about graviola and cancer and what you need to know about graviola supplements.

Loquat - Bessell Brown

Plant was great value and a lovely size plant. I bought this for my husband's birthday as a memory of his childhood years when he remembers enjoying the fruit from the tree. It will suit our subtropical climate to a tee. Looks so lush, is frost free and is drought tolerant which are two good reasons I bought the tree.

Loquat - Bessell Brown

This plant is thriving. I love this fruit and had a tree at the previous house and missed the fruit even though I had to fight the birds for them. The new plant has lots of new shoots on it now.

Loquat - Bessell Brown

I purchased a Bessell Brown 5 years ago and subjected it to neglect. This year, for the first time, the tree has fruited prolifically and, as we are in the middle of winter, no fruit fly has attacked the ripening fruit.Big delicious fruits!

This tree growing well, but still no flowers ( Apr 11 ). I planted in a position with only afternoon sun, as I thought it may fruit in semi-shade. Still hoping as I love loquats.
