Keriberry

Rubus rugosus var. thwaitsii
A supply of fresh berries in early spring when there is few other fruits available is very welcomed. The fruit looks like a large blackberry and has a flavour between that and a raspberry. A strong trellis is needed for support. Very vigorous. Weed Warnin... Read More

Berry - Boysenberry

$14.90 ($14.90-$19.90 choose a size)

Juicy, tart, with bright red to almost black fruit with a dust-like coating and distinctive aroma. They are delicious eaten fresh or are used in pies and jams. One of the better performing trailing berries in the subtropics. Thorny

Berry - Loganberry Thornless

$17.90 ($17.90-$19.75 choose a size)

Cross between the blackberry and the red raspberry. The long cylindrical berry is a delightful dusky purple-red when ripe. The aromatic fruit becomes sweeter when sun-ripened and is delicious eaten fresh or used in preserves and desserts. The plant is propagated by cutting and is taken from the thornless parent and is a clone. The roots, however, can still occasionally revert to producing thorny stems and these must be managed.

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.

Fingerlime - Pink Ice

$34.00 ($34.00-$149.00 choose a size)

A medium size shrub producing red to burgundy coloured fruits with clear or pink pearls of juice inside. The aroma of the fruits is similar to ruby grapefruit, and is perfect for cocktails and drinks, as well as cooking. Bears fruit from summer to autumn, with the fruits being ready to harvest when they come very easily off the branch without any effort. It is a great variety for growing in containers and in warm courtyards, and does best in full sun. Water thoroughly in spring and summer.

Plum - Yarrahapinni Blood

$49.00 ($39.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Medium sized self pollinating blood plum that requires approximately 450 hours of chill. It is very ornamental with deep red leaves, and has beautiful pink flowers in spring. Bears around late December.

Dwarf Orange - Cara Cara

$39.00

This variety was discovered in Venezuela in 1976. It is smaller than many other navel selections but has pink flesh similar to Star Ruby grapefruit. In South Africa it matures slightly earlier than Washington navel. Although Cara Cara has yet to be evaluated fully under Australian conditions there is considerable interest in it locally. The dwarf rootstock, flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Keriberry

Its january, and my 4 yr old keriberry has the most fruit ever forming, so expect to be picking very soon. The problem is how can i not water when the fruit is so yum and yet keeping up the water in dry Adelaide is so difficult. Keep it hydrated my tip

Keriberry

Too thorny! The thorns are sharp and hard. Very vigorous, but not so productive. Currently only two years in my garden.

Keriberry

These are epic, we've had a crop running from April to July - needs a lot of space and must be managed carefully at least in the subtropics.

Similar in taste to Boysenberries. Holds its fruit in clusters at the end of its canes. Fruits in winter when other fruit is scarce. Does not produce large volumes of fruit together like the Boysenberry does, but produces smaller volumes over a prolong...
