Taro Pacific

$17.90

A large tuber, sometimes reaching up to 3-4 kg. Taro a staple crops of the Pacific. The delicious tuber can substitute potato in almost any dish. Its heart-shaped leaves make for an attractive ornamental plant that grows well in both shade and sun. Prefers moist soil.Taro should never be eaten raw, due to the presence of harmful oxalates, which are eliminated with cooking. These substances are particularly high in the leaves. Weed Warning: in tropical areas, Taro can spread overtime especially in waterways, displacing native vegetation. Plant responsibly

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$49.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.

Dwarf Mango - King Thai

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Equal if not better in flavour than the Bowen mango. A semi-dwarf tree making it ideal for backyards, it produced elongated fruits similar to the Nam Doc Mai. The fruits start out with green skin and ripen to yellow with pink-red blushed fruit. Compact, branching, slightly upright tree growing to 3-4m tall and 2-3m wide. Shows good resistance to anthracnose and black spot.

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.

Banana - Blue Java

$19.90 ($12.90-$19.90 choose a size)

A fast growing, cold tolerant variety of banana also called Ice Cream banana as the flavour and consistency is reminiscent of creamy vanilla ice cream or custard. Grows to a height of at least 3m and sometimes up to 5 in tropical areas.

Fig White Adriatic

$39.00 ($39.00-$69.00 choose a size)

A green skinned medium to large sized fig with sweet, red flesh that has a superb flavour. When tree ripened this fig is unsurpassed with its rich strawberry flesh. Peels very easily when ripe.
