    Try one of these slightly different but delicious varieties

    (Seasonal and subject to availability)

    White Flesh, Red Flesh, Pink Flesh varieties

    Also known as the Pitaya, the dragonfruit is a stunningly beautiful fruit with an intense colour and shape, magnificent flowers and a delicious taste. Once only seen in the finest restaurants it is fast becoming common-place throughout Australia as a garnish and a delicious fresh fruit. Their striking large flowers can be over 20cm wide and appear in summer and open to a scented white, lily like bloom in the evening and only last one night. Choose a sunny spot and then boost the soil with compost, manure and certified organic pelletised fertiliser.

    Finger Lime

    Green, Pink, Yellow Varieties

    The Australian finger lime or caviar lime, is a thorny shrub or small tree that has edible fruits described as Lime Caviar, which are is sought after by top restaurants around the world. It is a good idea to protect trees from prevailing winds as the fruit can be damaged by the plant’s thorns. Finger limes thrive in dappled light as well as full sun. In cooler climates, a partly shaded north-facing site is preferred. They are able to withstand light frost. Mulch in spring and make sure the soil is kept moist in summer.

    Kiwi Berry

    KiwiBerry are small - in the 5 - 20 gram range, with smooth hairless edible skins, and shapes varying from round to elongated. One of the attractions of KiwiBerry is that they, like grapes, are a single mouthful. Self pollinating Vine taste like a kiwi fruit.

    Lemonade Tree

    The Lemonade lemon tree (citrus limon x reticulata) is a cross between a lemon tree and a mandarin tree that was developed in Australia. The fruit of the tree is sweet like mandarins, but with a lemon-y tang. It can be eaten straight from the tree. "Lemonade" trees have similar growing requirements as other citrus treesPlant the trees in full sun and in an area with good drainage. The flesh has a sweet lemonade flavour that can be eaten fresh or squeezed to make lemonade. A heavy cropper, ideal for pots. Carries some fruit for most of the year.

     

    Papaya (Paw Paw)

    Easily grown in home gardens, their delicious, sweet flesh can be enjoyed at the breakfast table for most of the year (For added zing squeeze fresh lime over your pawa paw, yum!) Native to southern Mexico and central America, pawpaw flourishes in the tropics and subtropics where individual trees can be productive for up to 6 years.Pawpaws grow best in soils rich in organic matter, but good drainage is important to prevent root rot. 

     

     

     

     

    Persimmon

    If your memories of biting into a home-grown persimmon are of mouth-puckering, eye-scrunching astringency, then think again, as there are lots of sweet, non-astringent varieties you can grow. These persimmons are perfect for eating sliced, whole like a pear, peeled and diced, dried, or even added to a smoothie as a thickener. And they can be grown through a wide variety of climate zones.

     

    Strawberry Guava

    The Strawberry guava grows on an evergreen shrub that can reach up to 8 meters tall in the right environment. The leaves, fruit and seeds of the Strawberry guava are edible. This shrub is hardier and will tolerate more difficult conditions than common guava. It does best in full sun. It will tolerate poor soils that other fruit trees will not, including limestone soils. If you do have poor soil, your tree may need more watering to produce fruit. It is also very drought tolerant. Strawberry guavas are approx 2 to 4 cm, maturing from a light green to a magenta color when fully ripe and are soft to the touch. They have a thin skin that tastes of rose petals. The creamy white interior has small round seeds that are typically swallowed whole. The small fruits have a deliciously sweet aromatic flavor that is reminiscent of strawberry, passionfruit and lime zest and they are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, fiber, potassium and magnesium.

    Yacon
