Achacha

$39.00 ($19.75-$129.00 choose a size)

A cousin of the mangosteen, Achachas are tangy and refreshing with a delicate subtle sweetness, a fine balance between sweetness and acidity, producing an unusual taste sensation. Fruit should be picked mature as it does not ripen further on storage. Originating from the Bolivian part of the Amazon basin in South America, the Bolivian name of the fruit is Achachairu and translated means honey kiss. Achacha is protected by Plant Breeders Right (PBR) and cannot be grown or propagated without licence agreement with Achacha Fruit Group

Abiu

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

A smooth, brilliant yellow fruit with sweet translucent flesh. It has delicious flavour reminiscent of creme caramel and a texture that is extremely smooth and luscious. The fruit is considered a delicacy for those who can grow it successfully, and it thrives in warm subtropical and tropical conditions.It is native to South America and can be found growing wild throughout much of Amazonia. In Brazil the pulp from the plant is used medicinally, to relieve coughs and bronchitis. Of course, most people love the fruit's flavour, which is enhanced when eaten slightly chilled. Cut in half and scoop out the flesh with a spoon and enjoy. It can be used to flavour ice cream and make other desserts.

Dwarf Apple - Redlove

$49.00 ($49.00-$89.00 choose a size)

Stunning and unique red flesh are the highlight of this new variety of apple. It is a beautiful backyard tree to grow, producing an attractive flush of burgundy coloured spring growth, dark bark and deep red skin also make this a pretty tree. Blackspot and powdery mildew resistant it only grow to about 2.5m and is perfect for pots. Pollinators - Granny Smith, Pinkabelle and Pink Lady
Special Offer: Buy 1+ @$49.00ea usually:$79.00ea

Kwai Muk

$19.75 ($18.75-$29.90 choose a size)

Kwai Muk produces a 5cm wide orange fruit that is subacid and excellent flavour. It can be eaten fresh when fully ripe, dried, or preserved. The tree grows slowly and good for landscaping. More cold hardy than the Jakfruit.

Dwarf Mulberry - Red Shahtoot

$49.00 ($19.75-$99.00 choose a size)

Much more compact in growth habit than the King White Shahtoot. These delicious sweet fruits can reach 10cm in length. Ideal for back yards and we consider it a must have fruit tree for the back yard. The best way to eat mulberries is fresh from the tree. If some should make it to the kitchen bench they make excellent pies, jams, wines and sauces. Multiple crops are possible by pruning directly after your first crop. Suitable for most regions of Australia, although it can be susceptible to damage from late frosts. The red shahtoot is ideal for growing in pots and containers due to it small growing habit and it is ideal for school gardens as it does not produce fruits that stain and the sweet fruits are very appealing to children. This variety is best suited to warm subtropical climates and does not perform well in temperate climate where it tends to drop their fruit.
  Special  

Black Sapote

$24.00 ($12.90-$29.00 choose a size)

Closely related to the Persimmon this attractive glossy foliaged tree produces a fruit often called the 'Chocolate Pudding Fruit'. They are best eaten when the fruit is very soft and the skin turns a dark colour Seedling selections are worth growing in cooler marginal areas. Cross Pollination is beneficial.

Bit of a slow starter - our 5 year old tree has only just hit its straps. Pollination and fruit set can be tricky. Keep careful watch on the maturing fruits - sucking bugs and pecking birds love them as well. Flowers from Spring and through to Autumn and

Fun to grow and the fruit does taste like peanut butter. I suspect this species is chill sensitive as it becomes chlorotic in winter once the night temps are less than about 8C - followed by bright sunny days. It recovers perfectly fine in spring so I ...

Peanut Butter Tree

Love this tree. Very pretty and can stand cold, windy, exposed sites. Unusual tasting fruit. Sweet but pasty. Takes a while to get used to but very yummy. Sweet,delicate and best eaten straight off the tree as soon as it turns red.

This is not a tip but a question. Does anyone know why a lot of flowerbuds fall off without opening? Hundreds of mine have dropped off and only now some flowers are opening and the fruits are starting to form.

Still in it's pot, and suffered from insect attact.  Probably snails, almost defoliated it, but it's on the way back.  There were flowers when I received it and I got a couple of fruit off it  before winter.  It needs to find a home in the ground b...
