Fruit Trees

Flame tree πŸ”₯

 The Flame Tree is Australia's most spectacular flowering rainforest tree, with brilliant red flowers in mid spring. It is a superb shade tree and very hardy - it will grow in most regions of Australia.


Grafted trees will flower within 3 years, and are selected from vibrant flowering stock. These trees will tend to drop leaves in the late spring as they are briefly deciduous during flowering season πŸ”₯❤ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #flametree #rainforesttree






White Jacaranda 🀍

 A beautiful white flowering form of jacaranda. The White Jacaranda is a spectacular choice for a street tree or large shade tree. It is a long lived trees that can grow to be 200 years old.

Flowers appear in late spring and early summer. Grafting ensures flower will be pure white. The foliage is delicate on young trees, and our potted plants are known for their older leaves to turn yellow and drop during transport to conserve energy. This is not a problem long term. With care and acclimatisation, they will bounce back strongly. #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #whitejacaranda #jacaranda







WA - 50% Reduction in Quarantine Costs

What are WA Quarantine Requirements?

The WA government requires plants to go through certain checks before being allowed entry. These checks include payment to NSW DPI officers to physically visit us and look over all the plants and fill out verification paperwork.

Additionally WA DPI officers need to verify the list of plants and check all the plants when they arrive into Western Australia.

There are also certain sprays that the plants need.

Each of these steps are part of the quarantine costs on each order.

Why are quarantine costs 50% cheaper Now?

2 words Scale and Productivity. In other words more WA customers are ordering making the batches bigger and our staff are getting better each time at the extra quarantine requirements, finding ways to do it quicker and more efficiently. Each year and because of this when we audited our costs we found that in 2024 we can safely reduce these fees by 50% compared to how much was charged in 2023 and before this.

Dragonfruit - Dark Star

 The Dark Star Dragonfruit is a medium to large sized fruit with red flesh and a mild, sweet, grape-like flavour. It is most enjoyed when chilled and eaten fresh. The Dark Star has long skinny bracts, or fins, that make it especially attractive. White elaborate flowers bloom only at night. Grow Dragon Fruit in well-drained soils, in full sun to partial shade. Water this cactus regularly and do not allow the soil to dry out between watering #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #dragonfruit #pitaya #darkstar







Muscadine Grape - Noble πŸ‡πŸ‡πŸ‡

 The Muscadine - Noble is the most popular red muscadine grape for wine or juice production. It is self-fertile. Yields are high, and berry ripening is fairly uniform.

The vine has high disease resistance.
Flavour is less musky than most muscadine grapes. Excellent fresh eating or good for wine making. Exclusive to Daleys - this is a recently released Florida variety. They are vigorous vines and should not be planted where they can escape into native bushland, as they would quickly smother trees and shrubs around them πŸ‡ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #muscadinegrape #grapevine

 The Eureka Lemon is probably the most widely grown lemon in the world. It is a true sour lemon with a high juice and acid content. The tree can have fruit most of the year. The fruit is thin-skinned and virtually seedless. An almost thornless variety makes harvesting, pruning and growing the Eureka an easy choice.


It is a highly productive variety of large flavourful lemons. The main crop will be harvested during Winter. If you like to use lemons in your kitchen, then you could juice any excess lemons and store in the freezer for later, or make some preserved lemons or share with friends πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸŒΏπŸŒΏπŸŒΏ #daleyfruit #daleysnursery #eurekalemon #citrus #lemon






The Photinia Red Robin πŸ‚

 The Photinia Red Robin is a fast growing evergreen shrub, with a dense habit that responds well to pruning. New foliage growth is a brilliant red in colour, changing to bronze-green as the season progresses and maturing to be dark green.


Showy white flowers appear in clusters to be followed by small berries. Ideal as a long lasting hedge, a focal point shrub/small tree, topiarised, or in pots on balconies and in courtyards πŸ‚ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #photiniaredrobin #hedge





Cinnamon Tree

 The Cinnamon Tree is highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, then leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quills they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap.

Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic - much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #cinnamontree #cinnamon
