Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

Davidsons Plum - Smooth

D. johnsonni - Unfortunately, it's probably just the gardener, but I have had little luck trying to grow these. I have a couple from many years ago that are still only 30cm high and one is just starting to flower! The last couple I got died despite following directions to the letter for their propagation. D. jerseyana seem to grow as easily as weeds in the same area, so it remains a mystery to me. I really want to get these endangered species established to compliment the other two species.

Davidsons Plum - Smooth

Went well in pot in half shade sun. Almost carked it in spot a year after planting. The sun is fierce now. I am going to cincture and removed all fruit. Mulched & built up soil / humus plus more water. Better even after 43 deg heat Jan 2017 Hunter coastal
