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

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 Mango - Alison Red

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

A semi-dwarfing selection of Kensington Pride. Fruits are medium sized with an attractive red blush and delicious smooth flesh with the true Kensington flavour. The tree is about 1/2 the size of the Kensington Pride.

Dwarf Plum Gulf Gold Tree (G)

$39.00 ($29.00-$79.00 choose a size)

This golden plum is firm with excellent flavour & texture and a small seed. 350 hours chill. This dwarf plum is an ideal backyard variety and perfect for pots. An excellent all-round variety with the added bonus that it doesn't seem to be attractive to fruit fly as much as other stonefruit. Partially self pollinating but benefits from pollination with Gulf Ruby. Attractive in spring when it is smothered in white blossoms.

Carambola Starfruit - Kary

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

Excellent flavour, bright skin and juicy flesh with few seeds, bearing a summer and winter crop. It exhibits more cold tolerance than other varieties. Carambolas are also called Star Fruit 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

Dwarf Apple - Dorsett Golden

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

Sweet aromatic apple with yellow fruit and a delightful pink blush and firm white flesh. Low chill requirement allows it to be grown in subtropical climates. Grafted on a dwarfing rootstock they are ideal for backyard plantings.

We had many lychee trees in South Africa until we moved to Perth.  Miss these delicious fruits.  Going to plant one in my backyard soon.

This variety produces large fruit with very good taste and many have small seed. We prune the top after fruiting to keep the size manageable.

It hasn't changed in 18 months. It's not happy or sad...just constant.
