Yamina Rare Plants has them, even a named cv. Whether or not they mail out is another question.

I have long looked at this fruit as being of poor quality and a waste of time. I just came accross a 2 meter bush with really nice ripe fruit that are practically seedless except for tiny grit that is not a problem. I have put in lots of cuttings.

I have held the same opinion, denise. That's surprising to hear how nice they really are. I'll have to look after mine a little closer from now on (after it rains, of course). They appear to be very drought tolerant. Mine's around 1.6m high. So they grow quite easily from cuttings?
I'll drop a couple of cuttings in for sternus in case he can't get hold of an established one.

The skin looks rough but melts in the mouth. Inside it is orange, slightly juicy and pasty. Though nice, they are satisfying in small quantities. I always thought they would taste chunderous inside as is with some cornus (dogwood) fruit. The taste was similar to strawberry, but no tartness. They need to be well ripened. I suppose all trees will be that good but cant guarantee as I havent tasted them before.

Irish Strawberry are very common around here and most of the nurseries sell them. The picture is of a massive one currently laden with fruit just around the corner from my house (taken today)so it gives you an idea how big they get.

I tried some of the fruit off it, and the flavour is an aromatic orange flavour, a bit like orange candy and not at all acidic but its a pity about the skin and the granules.

They would make a good shade tree having a large canopy although the fruit make a mess on the ground. One good thing is they don't all ripen at the same time so you can just pick a few as they ripen over an extended period of time.

I want an Arbutus elandu plant and I can pick it up in Kyogle. How big is the plant now and what size is the pot? What is the price? I am a PayPal member.

I have seen a few very poor tasting ones, I found a greek strawberry tree called Arbutus andrachne? and they were great. I have found a canary island tree and hope that is good too. The arbutus Elfin king is very poor.
