Pomegranate - Elche

$34.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

One of the most highly valued pomegranates in the world, thanks to its extraordinary flavour and high antioxidant, vitamin and mineral content. Elche comes from the Spanish city of the same name. Elche Pomegranates have to be picked at just the right time: Not too early because, once picked, pomegranates halt the ripening process immediately, and also not too late because they are then at risk of bursting.

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.

Durian

$69.00 ($29.00-$69.00 choose a size)

Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance and an irresistible flavour; others find the aroma overpowering and it is common for them to be banned from public transport. The spikey fruits need to be handled with care, but once open the true richness of this unique fruit can be appreciated. The flavour is rich and sweet, it can be described as having a hint of roasted sweet potato or onion flavours but the one thing that is certain about the durian is that it tends to grow on people. The more you eat it the more likely you are to fall in love with it. Durian trees have one or two flowering and fruiting periods per year. A typical durian tree can bear fruit after four or five years. The durian fruit can hang from any branch and matures roughly three months after pollination. Growers often tie the fruit up to the branch so that when ready to fall they don't hit the ground and get damaged. Durians are very tropical and we only recommend them from areas north of Mackay in QLD.

Chestnut - Reilly

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