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.

Rollinia - Brazilian Custard Apple

$19.75 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

A relative of the cherimoya this plant has its origins in tropical America. The fruit about 100mm in diameter has a creamy juicy and delicious flesh, according to some tasting like lemon meringue pie. Fruits within 4 years from seed. Seed selected from extremely sweet and flavoursome fruit with firm white flesh and few seeds.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

Mamey Sapote

$49.00 ($24.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Underneath the Mamey's leathery coarse brown skin is a brilliantly coloured, sweet and creamy flesh. The salmon-pink flesh has an exotic flavour similar to sweet pumpkin pie with spice. Unripe fruits can be cooked as a vegetable.
  Special  

Acerola - Florida Sweet

$34.00 ($14.90-$79.00 choose a size)

This bright red cherry like fruit has varying tastes during different stages as it ripens. When fully ripe the fruit is juicy and aromatic with its acid content giving it a sweet acid apple-like flavour. The tree can produce a number or crops each year, making for quite a long harvest season. Our selection is called the acerola Florida Sweet Cherry and is a pleasant eating variety that is not too sour. The acerola is well suited to pot culture where it can be kept to a smaller size. It could also be grown this way in cooler climates where it can be moved to a warmer position in the winter. A word of warning the foliage of the plant is covered in tiny irritating stinging hairs that can produce an allergic reaction. When pruning your trees wear a long sleeved shirt and a pair of gloves.

My seedling abiu is about 5 years old and 2m by 2m. For the past three years it has flowered. Every year the flowers fall off without producing fruit. It seems that these trees really need cross pollination.

A great tasting quality fruit for the tropics & subtropics! I have a single 2m high seedling tree that bears more than a dozen large delicious fruit per year. I rate them so highly, I recently planted 2 more trees.

Extremely ambitious but growing in a half wine barrel in Melbourne. Rock retaining wall on one side and brick wall on other to retain heat around it.  Fingers crossed.

To me it tastes like caramel mixed with a persimmon background. It does have a stickiness to the fruit so will stick tissues etc. to fingers. It is hard to wash off but after a few minutes the stickiness disappears by itself.

Seedling trees are fine so long as you plant two together so they can cross pollinate.

Satisfaction level with this plant will rise when I see fruit starting to form on the branches. I have high hopes for this one, it's growing way out of it's comfort zone, namely, I'm just an hours drive north of Sydney.. It doesn't quite frost here but...

My family grows an Abiu tree in our backyard and my dad loves it especially for its sweet caramel-like taste! It grows well here in Singapore because of the all year round tropical climate.

I love the idea of caramel fruit! The tree is very tall and top heavy though so not sure how it will go - it looks very flimsy.

Nice looking tree. Quite quick growing. I had it in an exposed spot and it grew quickly (contrary to popular thought) it flowered but set no fruit. I moved it to a prime spot to try to get it to set fruit and it is flowering again spring 2011.
