Carambola Starfruit - Daleys Sweet Gold


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

Lychee - Salathiel

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

Tree has an open dome shape with excellent quality fruit. Well suited to subtropical conditions. Beautiful coloured fruit with very small seed. Needs protection from wind when young. Mid season

Yuzu - Grafted

$49.00 ($49.00-$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

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

Orange - Arnold Blood

$39.00 ($39.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Sweet variety requiring hot dry conditions for best colour. Blood oranges have their own distinctive flavour reminiscent of strawberries. This is the best colouring variety in the sub tropics. New PVR blood orange.

Mango - Florigon

$69.00 ($69.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Definitely the winner in the taste department. The soft sweet flesh melts in your mouth. The fruit has a small seed and virtually no fibre and great flavour. Considered by some to be too small for the market it certainly makes up for its lack of size with taste. Yellow skinned, excellent quality fruits. Sets well in subtropics. Moderately resistant to Anthracnose, susceptible to Black Spot. Average wt. 300g. (Video - Grafting a Florigon Mango)

Red Cedar

1. Repotted into 12 inch pots for a month steadily increasing sunlight exposure over this time. 2. Planted out into virgin soil, staked and watered twice a week then left alone. 3. Need to keep a close eye out for cedar tip moth infestation. Seem to be very active with some plants and warm humid weather. 4. Plants now 50 % taller and doing well. 5. In my case Plants that are in part shade seem to do better than full sun.

Red Cedar

Forest stocks of this beautiful tree were utterly decimated by settlers seeking good timber for construction and furniture. No-one bothered to replant them. I am determined to do my bit for restoring them into protected forests and gardens.

Plant seedling in a 6m high thicket, give special care. Mine grew 6 m (& still only 70mm diameter.) Gradually remove competition. I now have them 10m high, 400mm dia. beautiful trees, no tipmoth.

Toona ciliata - Red Cedar

Try enclosing the tip in stocking mesh (panty hose) until the top gets too high to reach by ladder. After that, when the mesh finally perishes, the tree may be vulnerable. But at least it won't fork close to the ground.

Toona ciliata - Red Cedar

There is a moth that attcks the Red Cedar's new growth- which forses the tree to fork. This makes them unsuitable to try and grow as a forestry tree for the purpose of harvesting the timber. They need to be grown under the canopy of larger tree's.
