Bottle Tree

$4.90 ($4.90-$59.00 choose a size)

Narrow Leaf Bottle Tree has a swollen bottle like trunk. The insignificant flowers followed by small interesting boat like pods. A very attractive specimen tree or useful indoor plant. This is the QLD bottle tree and is very similar in the way it looks to the Boab Tree also nicknamed bottle tree from Western Australia however they are a different family of plants. You can even try growing them in pots but the pot would need to be very large.

Babaco (Grafted)

$99.00

Grafted Babacos don't suffer from root_Rot. Cutting grown Babacos can fall over easier as well. Grafted varieties are usually harder to propagate and can be good when your climate is ideal for them. An attractive torpedo shaped fruit with effervescent flesh. The texture of the golden fruit is light and refreshing. The slightly acid flavour has a hint of strawberry, pineapple and pawpaw and can be made into a tasty thirst quenching drink.

Lychee - No Mai Chi

$69.00

One of the most prized and desired varieties in the world and the leading variety in China. Large red fruits with small seeds, they have clean, dry fruits that are excellent for drying. The trees are harder to grow than other varieties and can be frustratingly slow but with extra care and nurturing they are well worth the effort for the quality of their fruits. Better suited to areas with cool winters. Late season.

Black Sapote - Colossal

$69.00

Seedling selection from Kyogle, very large fruit and self pollinating. Seedless when not pollinated. Closely related to the Persimmon this attractive glossy foliaged tree produces a fruit often called the 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. Delicious when eaten as a desert with cream and a touch of Rum or vanilla.

Durian

$29.00 ($29.00-$69.00 choose a size)

Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance and an irresistible flavour; others find the aroma overpowering and it is common for them to be banned from public transport. The spikey fruits need to be handled with care, but once open the true richness of this unique fruit can be appreciated. The flavour is rich and sweet, it can be described as having a hint of roasted sweet potato or onion flavours but the one thing that is certain about the durian is that it tends to grow on people. The more you eat it the more likely you are to fall in love with it. Durian trees have one or two flowering and fruiting periods per year. A typical durian tree can bear fruit after four or five years. The durian fruit can hang from any branch and matures roughly three months after pollination. Growers often tie the fruit up to the branch so that when ready to fall they don't hit the ground and get damaged. Durians are very tropical and we only recommend them from areas north of Mackay in QLD.

Achacha

$39.00 ($19.75-$129.00 choose a size)

A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Fruit should be picked mature as it does not ripen further on storage. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group

Grass Tree

Grass trees are magnificent long living feature trees. They have leaves unlike any other plant, which are so fine that they sway ever so beautifully with just a small gust of wind, thus, adding a phenomenal kinetic element to your garden. Furthermore, they are also great for the ecosystem within your garden, as their dried up leaves at the base of the tree provide the perfect shelter for small native insects and animals. I highly recommend them, they're easily one of my favourite Aussie natives.

Grass Tree

They do not tolerate too much root disturbance. Once established they are reasonably bullet proof. Livestock love to eat them down to the trunk so keep stock away. Good drainage required.

Grass Tree

I planted 5 grass trees about 20 years ago, unfortunately 2 died but the other three have taken off. they are now all about a metre and a half tall and the trunks are about 25cm thick. I don't know why everyone says they are slow growing.
