Definitely the winner in the taste department. The soft sweet flesh melts in your mouth. The fruit has a small seed and virtually no fibre and great flavour. Considered by some to be too small for the market it certainly makes up for its lack of size with taste. Yellow skinned, excellent quality fruits. Sets well in subtropics. Moderately resistant to Anthracnose, susceptible to Black Spot. Average wt. 300g. (Video - Grafting a Florigon Mango)

Carambola Starfruit - Daleys Sweet Gold


A very sweet, juicy selection that produces an abundant crop of medium sized fruit. Hard to surpass the flavour of this Daleys Nursery selection. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit and are excellent eaten fresh or juiced. Carambola trees have an attractive weeping habit, producing a profusion of pink flowers. 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

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.
