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.
