Yuzu - Grafted

$59.00 ($59.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Native to China, the Yuzu has been used and cultivated in this region for thousands of years. The fruit is tart, resembling a grapefruit with mandarin overtones. It is rarely eaten as a fresh fruit but is used to makes sauces, preserves and a popular yuzu vinegar. In Korea thinly sliced fruits are combined with sugar and honey to make a thick marmalade like syrup. Yuzu kosho is a spicy Japanese sauce made from green or ripe yellow yuzu zest, chillis and salt. The yuzu is more cold tolerant than most other citrus, being able to tolerate to -5 degrees

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.

Orange Berry

$17.90 ($17.90-$31.95 choose a size)

Native to rainforest and vine thickets in tropical Australia to as far south as Bundaberg and spread into Asia this is an attractive small tree with tasty berries. Tiny white fragrant flowers are followed by small orange to pink juicy fruits that are sweet and honey flavoured with resinous overtones. Obviously related to the citrus family the foliage is glossy and aromatic. Perfect for use in a mixed screen or bush food garden the orange berry is also a host plant for the swallow tailed butterfly when the plant is young. Fruits make a delicious jam that taste similar to candied honey.

Longan - Seedling

$17.75 ($17.75-$59.00 choose a size)

A close relative to the Lychee tree but much larger, stronger and more cold tolerant. The fruit is deliciously sweet. Seed selected from the superior varieties. Even though not true to type the benefits include a vigorous tree making it more suitable for marginal climates. Cincturing at about 3-4 years of age can force earlier fruiting than normally expected from seedling trees.

Need male and female trees and only have one.  Not a plant readily pruned because of the way it grows.  Anybody want it?

Clear Mountain, QLD, Australia

This plant was sold as a Christmas Tree in our local community nursery, has grown well considering it was in a pot for so long before I put it into the ground.  I love the glossy leaves.

May have required more TLC after the first few months.  Not completely dead yet but not doing too well.  Will try to resurrect.  No fault to Daley's.
