Dwarf Mulberry - Black

$29.00 ($19.75-$79.00 choose a size)

This mulberry has a very low chill factor making it ideal for our subtropical climate. Pruning after fruiting allows it to be kept under 3mtrs, and also encourages multiply cropping throughout the summer. It is best to pick the fruit when ripe, as it doesn't ripen further off the tree. A benefit of a mulberry tree is that the fruit ripens over an extended period of time unlike other fruit that often ripens all at once. The fruits of the black mulberry, considered the tastiest and most versatile of the mulberries are large and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and tartness. The fruit of the dwarf black mulberry is the same as that on the large black mulberry that we all know and love. The fruit is large, resembling a blackberry, sweet and luscious. When not devoured fresh it is ideal to use in jams, wines and mulberry pies. (Dwarf Mulberry Tree Video )This variety performs excellent in the Subtropics. There has been feedback that this variety doesn't perform as well in Temperate Climates.

Acerola - Florida Sweet

$18.75 ($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.

I had heard of the Miracle fruit, and after talking with someone who has one growing I decided I must try one as well!. I received my plant in excellent condition in March 2023, have just got the keys to my new home so will be planting my Miracle fruit in my new garden. It has flourished in the large pot I placed it in, and I'm sure will love being planted into the ground. I look forward to trying the fruit for myself some time soonish.

You can hand pollinate this fruit by using your nails to brush against the flower gentally. White pollen will fall on the nails and used to wipe the stigma of many flowers. You can tell the flowers are open as there is a very strong perfume that wafts.

I'm not sure but i think these are wind pollinated. Perhaps if you gently shake your plants when they're in flower, you may have more berries. Then again, maybe not.That toothbrush method sounds successful too.
