Dwarf Jaboticaba - Costada

$39.00 ($29.00-$59.00 choose a size)

A beautiful, ornamental tree that produces tasty, sweet fruit. Extremely rare. Fruits in two years and perfect for pots.

Santol

$29.00 ($19.90-$29.00 choose a size)

The divided fruit segments can be consumed raw or as in India, eaten with spices. They are pleasantly subacid with good flavour. The flesh is usually sucked off the seeds as the pulp clings firmly to them. Take care not to swallow the slippery seeds. By removing the seeds it makes a tasty jam or jelly. There are two forms of the Santol the red and the yellow, both have large round textured yellow fruit with a very thick velvety skin. The tree itself is very elegant in appearance with large lime to deep green leaves and offering occasional contrasting red leaves. In its native setting it is a large tree that will buttress with age, it has low growing branches and makes an excellent street or shade tree. Young plants are frost sensitive and will require protection from cold, however once established they can handle a light brief frost.
