These plant varieties are naturally small and often very good for growing in pots. They are usually very easy to keep under 2m tall via pruning when grown in the ground or via root restriction in a pot.

Semi Dwarf Plants

Fruit Trees > Dwarf Fruit Trees > Semi Dwarf Plants


When compared to the average size of this plant they are usually much smaller. Eg. If a mulberry naturally grows to 10m but this particular mulberry is known to be 2-5m then this is a semi dwarf fruit tree. Often produced by growing them from cuttings but can be just unique to the particular variety.

Imbe

$27.00

Originating in Africa, this tree bears a small plum like fruit bright orange in colour. A thin layer of acid-sweet, watery pulp surrounds the seed. The rather tender skin tends to prevent packing and shipping of the fruit, but it deserves to be more widely cultivated as a home fruit. Hardy to most conditions. Dark green leathery leaves and ornamental structure make it appealing as an interesting and edible landscape plant. Grows to a bush or small tree to 4-6 m. Imbes have good salt tolerance and are also wind tolerant. Trees are dioecious, so one each of a male and female are needed for pollination and fruit set. Plant a minimum of 3 seedlings to increase the chances of having one of each. Isolated female trees will set a few small fruit parthenocarpically but the quality and size is always better with a male pollinator.
