Berries Vines and Climbers

Fruit Trees > Berries Vines and Climbers


The big three in the vine world are the Passionfruit, Kiwifruit and Grape. All three require their fare share of care but they will reward you with an abundance of fruit in a relatively short time. All need a strong trellis, the Kiwifruit and Grape are more suited to pergola planting due to their deciduous nature. If you need all-round cover then go with the passionfruit. The Dragon Fruit - Pitaya is stunningly beautiful with a large flowers and melon like fruit. Berries, the most magnificent of the dessert fruits also need care because with neglect they will become the rampant monsters of your garden. They need a sunny airy location with some type of edging to stop them invading other parts of the garden. A trellis is a good idea as the long canes can be tied up allowing better circulation that will lesson the adverse effects of excess humidity. If growing in the subtropics it is highly recommended that some shade is provided.

Citrus Trees

Fruit Trees > Citrus Trees


Citrus fruit trees are the most popular fruit bearing group of plants grown in Australia. The glossy green foliage, white scented flowers and colourful fruit make these trees just as suited to ornamental plantings and container growing as to the home orchard. The fruit is produced in abundance, is nutritious, versatile and can be left on the tree for long periods. Citrus grows best in an open and sunny position. Frost-free areas are preferable however most citrus will tolerate light frost once they are established. Correct planting and ongoing care as outlined in the catalogue is vital for long-term success. Selecting the varieties to grow is up to you, however we strongly recommend that your choice allows for the maximum spread of maturity times throughout the season.

Duo Planting Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Duo Planting Fruit Trees


A Duo Planting of Fruit Trees is where 2 plants are planted in the same pot or very close together. When planting them in your backyard it allows you to save space and have 2 complimenting varieties with individual root system. This is compared to multi grafts which both rely on only 1 root system. Duo plantings are more robust and often allow plants that require cross pollination to produce fruit.

Nut Trees

Fruit Trees > Nut Trees


Growing nut trees in Australia is not new with pecans and macadamias being one of our most successful commercial crops. The Macadamia is a native of southern Queensland and northern New South Wales and is the only Australian native tree to be developed into a commercial crop. The Pecan is a native of America and is among the best of the multi-purpose trees providing a valuable nut crop and an excellent long-term investment. Chestnuts, Hazlenuts, Walnuts and Almonds are amongst the temperate group of nuts. We do not recommend them as commercially viable within the subtropics however they will bear adequate crops for the home orchardist.

Perennial vegetables

Fruit Trees > Perennial vegetables


Perennial Vegetables make unusual, highly appealing ornamental plants that provide edible leaves or tubers for most of the year. Apart from being a plentiful food source they also serve other functions around the house such as screening (Arrowroot), ground covers (sweet potato), and edge plants used as a barrier against weeds (comfrey).

Subtropical Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Subtropical Fruit Trees


Subtropical fruit trees such as avocado, custard apples and babacos reach their greatest potential in coastal regions from Sydney to Mackay. Many will grow well even as far south as Melbourne in sheltered micro climates, maybe not commercially but certainly worth trying in the backyard orchard.

Temperate Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Temperate Fruit Trees


This category is largely made up of deciduous fruit trees. When selecting temperate fruit trees it's important to consider their pollination and chill hour requirements. As the coastal region or northern NSW and south east Qld has such a mild climate, care must be taken to choose deciduous fruit trees appropriate for our mild winters. The selected varieties we sell have the lowest chill factor of their groups. If you are looking for stonefruit we have selected lowchill varieties that are listed in the subtropical fruit tree category.
Category

Tropical Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees > Tropical Fruit Trees


Tropical fruit Trees or the 'exotics' grow naturally in lush forests where they are protected from cold winds and they thrive in warm and humid conditions. Growing conditions in home gardens vary substantially and will often determine the type of trees you can grow. Winter cold (chill factor), summer warmth (humidity and temperature) and the length of the frost-free season need to be considered. Many tropical fruits can be grown outside their ideal climate. We are constantly amazed by the fabulous home-orcharding success stories we hear from around Australia.

Daleys Special Deals - Wampee

$7.75 ($7.75-$19.75 choose a size)

Wampee Seedlings - We have these Plants on a Super Special at present for the next month. We were unsuccessful using this batch as rootstock so we are now overstocked and need to sell them ASAP. Healthy plants need a good home. This attractive, evergreen, slender tree has been described as the finest fruit of Siam (Thailand). It is also a highly valued backyard tree in southern China and south and east Asia. It is classed as a subtropical fruit but is relatively hardy and can withstand light frosts. This tree is a relative of the citrus family, thus its ability to grow in coastal Australia as far south as Melbourne and inland where the frosts are not too severe. The fruits are highly aromatic and can be sweet to tangy to almost sour depending on the variety and ripeness. Straight from the tree wampees are very refreshing, thirst quenching and cleansing to the palate. They form in clusters from a few up to eighty in one bunch. The fruits turn yellow when ripe and have a thin, sometimes brittle skin, somewhat like paper. They generally have only 1-2 seeds in each fruit and are best left to ripen on the tree for as long as possible. They are a very attractive looking tree that can grow up to 8 metres with, beautiful dark green ruffled compound leaves. They have a dense growth habit making them an ideal shade tree. Wampees should be treated very much like any of the other citrus trees in regard to cultivation. A sunny, well drained site with plenty of water and organic matter should see these trees thrive. The crop is borne solely on the tips of branches, so the less pruning the better. Very few problems have been observed with pest and diseases other than occasional infestations of aphids. Mature trees can produce up to 50kg of fruit each year. Like its close relative the citrus it is full of vitamin C, approximately 28mg per 100g. This fruit can be used for making jams, jellies, pies, drinks but best eaten fresh, straight from the tree. If you want them to keep a bit longer you can try leaving the stalks on them
