Fruit Trees

Chilcotin Raspberry 💓

 The Chilcotin Raspberry is a summer fruiting variety that produces heavy crops of good quality fruit. Sturdy, almost thornless canes carry sweet fruit in mid-summer. They are a mid season variety. This variety has good disease resistance. They fruit on the floricanes, which are the previous years growth. Prune out each cane as it finishes fruiting and tie up the new seasons growth (primocanes) to fruit the next year. Chilcotin Primocanes may produce a small autumn crop on their tips, and the tips should be pruned after harvest #daleyfruit #daleysnursery #raspberry #chilcotinraspberry #backyardgarden







Asparagus

 The Asparagus is an attractive, fern-like perennial that can produce fresh tasty spears for over 20 years if the beds are well-maintained. Asparagus prefers sandy soils, but with the right preparation it will perform very well in heavier clays. Asparagus is a valuable investment in the long term vegetable garden. The plants are either male or female. Both male and female plants produce delicious spears, the male spears being slightly thicker, the females producing seed heads which can be pruned to encourage growth #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #asparagus #backyardgarden







Edible Pandanus 🌿

 The Edible Pandanus is widely cultivated for use in Asian cooking and basket making. It has a nutty fragrance and is most commonly used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food. Also useful in flower arrangements. A low growing plant to 1m with long narrow blade-like leaves and woody aerial roots. In tropical climates it can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, and used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping. If you live outside of the tropics, it is well worth trying as an indoor plant in winter with a warm, sunny aspect. Allow the plant to dry out over the winter months. #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #pandanus #ediblepandanus






The ever popular Pistachio 🌿

 Pistachio trees have been under cultivation for thousands of years. They are a long lived tree and can be productive for over 300 years. The nuts are particularly tasty and can be eaten raw or roasted, in sweet or savoury dishes. The trees grow best in hot, dry summers and cold winters. They are very tolerant to salinity and drought conditions so makes a perfect crop for inland Australia 🌿 #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #pistachio #pistachiotree #backyardgarden

Kalamata Olive

 A favourite in the Mediterranean diet, Olives make an exquisite accompaniment to dairy foods, breads, fruits, relishes and alcoholic drinks. Olive trees are attractive, hardy trees. Well suited to hot summers and cool winters, some varieties have now shown promise in higher summer rainfall areas with low chill. They can survive on relatively poor neutral pH soils as long as they are well drained. They prefer slightly alkaline soils to slightly acid soils. Of course, fruit quality is enhance by healthy, fertile soils. Fruit grown in higher rainfall areas is well suited to pickling, but high fruit moisture content can make oil extraction more difficult. Some drying may be helpful, or reductions in irrigation and/or exclusion of rain falling on the rootzone may help. The following multipurpose olives are well suited to home growing. Those with lower chill requirements have this attribute noted.


The Kalamata fruit is juicy and sweet and have a unique torpedo shape and split in the skin. The most popular olive in Australia, they are ideal for use in cooking or as an olive to eat alone. Suggested cross-pollinators are Frantoio and Koroneiki #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #olivetree #kalamataolive #backyardgarden






Kiwifruit 🥝

 Kiwifruits grow on a vigorous and long lived deciduous vine. Kiwifruit is a great tasting, highly nutritious treat. To eat, cut the fruit in half, then scoop the delicious flesh right out of the skin. They can be added to fruit salads and desserts as well as savoury dishes, they go particularly well with avocados, fish, chicken and prawns. We have a couple of varieties available.


Bruno - Large elongated fruit. Dark brown skin with dense, short, bristly hairs. Light-green flesh of good flavour. Ripens early May. Vigorous and productive with a relatively low chilling requirement

Hayward - The most popular commercial kiwifruit variety. Excellent quality and size, but does require a higher chill requirement than most other varieties. The Chieftain Male is the superior pollinator for these and the Kiwifruit Male is an alternative pollinator

Dexter - Fruit is similar to Hayward only slightly more elongated. Relatively low chill requirement, well adapted to warmer winter areas. Originated in Queensland as a seedling of Hayward.

Mango 🥭🥭🥭

 The Mango Tree is one of the most luscious of all tropical fruits, with flavours varying from exceptionally sweet to turpentine. By planting different varieties of mangoes, harvesting can be extended for up to 12 weeks. Select from some of the wonderful varieties we have available, such as the traditional R2E2, The Bambaroo, Brooks Late or Florigon. Or head to the Thai selection with the Nam Doc Mai or Keow Savoy. Mangoes have had a few rough seasons of late - they are due for another bumper crop within a few years... It's the perfect time to plant so your tree is established and ready to produce 🥭🥭🥭 #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #mango #backyardgarden #mangotree









The ever loved - Cherry 🍒

 Cherry Trees are large and long lived. The juicy, succulent fruits are loved by many, but they can only be grown in areas that receive a cool to cold winter as they will need 300 - 1400 hours of chill depending on the variety. Many species break bud and flower in early spring, so they can be susceptible to late frosts and are best not planted in frosty pockets. Some varieties will require cross pollination, but our varieties here at Daley's are all self fertile 🍒 #daleysfruit #cherry #daleysnursery
