Chinese Keys

$17.75 ($17.75-$17.75 choose a size)

A tropical perennial growing to 50 - 70cm high. Leaves die back in frost. It is the fat swollen roots that are sought after in this species and not the rhizome. The succulent roots are used to flavour many kinds of food either added raw or cooked. They are also sold in a pickled form in Indonesia & Thailand. Young leaves & shoots are also eaten. Formerly listed as Boesenbergia panduratum.

Raspberry - Atherton

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

Native to the highlands of far North Queensland, this raspberry is a sweet red-orange berry that grows on an upright suckering, sprawling ground cover with cane-like stems. It is delicious eaten fresh. Their popularity means they are often on supermarket shelves. The taste is milder than the European raspberry. The plant is very resilient to warmer growing conditions and can produce up to 3 kg per plant. It does need some management so it won't take over the garden, grow it where the suckers can be mowed over, or alternatively grow it in a large pot.

Blueberry - Sunshine Blue

$27.00 ($18.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Sunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous blueberry features showy hot pink flowers that fade to white in spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-fertile. It is is a Southern Highbush with the low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for the subtropics, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to patios and gardens in cooler areas.

Blueberry - Biloxi

$19.90 ($18.75-$49.00 choose a size)

A great choice for hotter climates with very little chill hours. It is often the first variety to hit the markets ripening a few weeks before other early blueberry varieties. The fruit is firm and the size is medium. Even though it fruits early it can often produce a second harvest later in the season although it's first time to fruit yields the best harvest. Best to mix with other varieties so that when this one is not fruiting another variety is.

Citron - Buddhas Hand

Another random fruit tree purchase...just cant help myself ;)) I always justify my new additions by planting in a very large pot and maintaining my dream of buying a farmlet... Anyhow, back to the 'Buddhas hand'. Its growing beautifully in the pot.

This has always been a scabby looking tree, but has always produced wonderful fruit.  Have to keep up the white oil to it though because scale insects love it.
