Pummelo - Nam Roi

$42.95

A recently imported Pummelo from Vietnam, where it is a very popular seedless variety. Pummelos are similar to grapefruits, but larger and much sweeter. Most adaptable citrus to tropical areas. Grows very well in subtropical climates too- like we have here at Daleys in Kyogle. Very large fruits!

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.

Lychee - Red Ball

$84.00 ($84.00-$120.00 choose a size)

Fruits at a young age. Attractive large red fruit with relatively small seed. Excellent sweet flavour. Mid season, the fruits are about 40g in weight. Fast growing tree. Recently imported Chinese variety that will become more widely commercially planted.

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.

Soursop - Diny

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

A grafted selection from the Sunshine Coast. The fruit is heart-shaped with a rough green skin and soft fleshy spines. The fresh meaty flesh is juicy and slightly acid producing a rich creamy thirst quenching juice. Superb when fruit is pureed with 1/3 of vanilla ice-cream. Also known as Graviola or Guanabana. Not suitable for temperate climates

Carambola Starfruit - Daleys Sweet Gold

$79.00

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

CARLINGFORD, NSW, Australia

The Flick's Yellow pummelo which we have has very nice fruit so we decided to try the red pummelo variety as well. Has flowered well, but low fruit set and fruit drops off while still small. Suspect inadequate water. We finally got a few fruit in 2019 ...
