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

Jujube - Chico

$124.00 ($109.00-$139.00 choose a size)

Compact and bushy, perfect for pots with round fruit flattened on the bottom. Look similar to a small apple. Pick when the whole fruit (or at least 80%) has just turned brownish red. Texture is crisp and light we consider it an excellent fresh or dried variety. Fruit size 35-45mm. Developed at the Chico institute in California, this is an early fruiting variety. (Jan - March) Cross pollinate for best results.

Lychee - Wai Chee

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Crops heavily and regularly in subtropical climates with high quality delicious fruit. Compact growth habit. Freshly picked Lychees are absolutely delicious compared to canned or supermarket fruit. Prefers sheltered, rich well drained soil, with lots organic mulch, and cool winters. Late season

Wax Jambu - Pink

$49.00 ($29.00-$99.00 choose a size)

Fast growing tree, attractive pink pear shaped fruit that are crunchy and refreshing on a hot summers day. Grows and crops well here in the subtropics as long as they are protected from frosts when young. They generally don't have seeds but may on rare occasions, depending on pollination.


$34.00 ($24.00-$79.00 choose a size)

The Amla or Indian Gooseberry is a small leafy tree that grows throughout India and bears an edible fruit. Amla oil is extracted from its seeds and pulp. The amla fruit is often referred to as the "Indian Gooseberry" because of its edible, very tart taste. The pectin content makes it ideal for jam and chutneys. The tree begins to yield fruit from the third year onwards and the productivity levels are good. Amla oil is prepared from dried amla berries, which have been soaked in coconut oil for several days. This oil is one of the world's oldest natural hair conditioners. These trees are semi deciduous in the winter and spring, and may lose some leaves in transport as a stress response. This is quite normal and the plant will recover well.

Dwarf Jaboticaba - Costada

$39.00 ($29.00-$59.00 choose a size)

A beautiful, ornamental tree that produces tasty, sweet fruit. Extremely rare. Is known to fruit in two years in the tropics and perfect for pots. Growing in temperate areas is experimental.

There are pink, white and yellow flesh. The yellow flesh is by far the best one. I wonder if I can grow this in Adelaide, even if I plant it in a pot. I miss eating cassava, regardless of the variety.

I come from a country of South America and I grew up eating lots of cassava. It can be cut into 10 cms pieces and fried they are vey nice. You can make soup with it too. Boil it and make it into a paste and grate lots of cheese and bake it.

I have mine in loose fertile soil - plenty of manure; n get kilograms of large tubers from each plant. Water well; full sun. We and neighbours experiment on how to prepare / cook / serve the cassava in place of potatoes.

I have one plant, still in a pot, but am a bit cautious about whether it is an edible-leaf or an edible-tuber variety, as I am sure it is either/or, and then it is unsafe to eat the other part.
