White Sapote - Kampong

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

A self pollinating selection with a compact form and thicker skinned fruits than normal. It is the preferred selection of a rare fruit grower in Bundaberg

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.

Dwarf Loquat Nagasakiwase


Grafted onto quince C creating a small and compact tree. Nagasakiwase has a superior flavour with deep orange, sweet juicy fruit. Dwarf loquats are perfect for pots, patios and small backyards. Early to ripen and produces a huge crop. Thinning the fruit will increase fruit size.

Loquat - Nagasakiwase

$49.00 ($49.00-$79.00 choose a size)

The best Japanese variety so far, it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. Earliest variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size. The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April / May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop has a much larger crop and better fruit size.

Cinnamon Tree

$49.00 ($27.00-$49.00 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

Canistel - Emma


Heavy bearing cold hardy selection that bears small - medium sized fruit. Very sweet, mealy textured fruit with complex caramel flavours. The further they ripen, the creamier the flesh becomes

This fig tree arrived in perfect condition and has transplanted well into a pot. No fruit as it's winter but many many buds.

Very happy this is actually VDB as far as I can tell (being a mission type, figs on VDB are never fully green when growing or ripening). Thank you. Hard to find fertilizer with equal amounts of NPK so I buy them individually and apply monthly up on signs of greenery starting to grow after winter to a month before going dormant. With this and repotting VDB Fig plant, after it lost it's fruit it initially came with, it has now more fruit on it.
