Pluot Plum - Black Adder ๐Ÿ–ค

 Our friend Graham Richards kindly gave us this low chill Pluot Plum to trial from his low chill breeding program. First fruiting this season, excellent flavour and texture. A Pluot is a cross between an Apricot and Plum- however more Plum characteristics are present. The Black Adder has Purplish-black skin with an amber flesh turning a deeper colour when very ripe.

Pluots normally require cross pollination to set fruit, so try cross pollinating with another Pluot, or a Japanese Plum variety- like a Mariposa. We are currently assessing its ability to self pollinate, and will update our growing advice with those results. Ensure adequate sunlight, and free-draining fertile soil for maximum yields and healthy productive trees. Being low chill, it will produce fruit where winters are mild, but still may not thrive in areas with hot summers. Protection may be beneficial ๐Ÿ–ค #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #pluotplum #backyardgarden

The enormous and delicious Blueberry Burst ๐Ÿ’™

 The fruit of the Blueberry Burst is a very large, crisp fleshed, sweet fruit. It can be harvested over 3-4 months, resulting in a constant supply of delicious, healthy fruit, filled with antioxidants. Blueberries have been nick named Brain Berries and Youth Berries because of the high antioxidant levels in them.

This variety is an evergreen, naturally dwarfing variety, growing to 1.0m high x 0.75m in width. It is self fruitful and because of its low chilling requirement can be grown anywhere in Australia. This variety has been growing in trials in both warmer and cooler climates in Australia with great success in all climates ๐Ÿ’™ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #blueberry #blueberryburst #blueberrybush

The super sweet Blueberry Kisses ๐Ÿ’™

Characterized by it enormous fruit size and naturally dwarfing habit, Blueberry Kisses is self pollinating, and perfect for planting with Blueberry Burst to extend the fruiting season.
This low chill variety has a flowering and fruiting period over 4 to 6 month with an exceptionally high yield. It has been trialed in both hot and cold climates in Australia, and was very successful.

the versatile Myoga Ginger ๐ŸŒฟ

 Native to Japan, the Myoga Ginger is grown commercially for its delicious spring shoots and young flower buds that are produced in autumn. Myoga flower buds are used in soups, tempura, pickled, and as a spice.

Like most gingers, it is an understory plant that thrives in partial shade. It can get sunburnt leaves which will reduce its vigor if grown in full sun. In winter the top growth dies back and it regenerates in spring from the underground ๐ŸŒฟ

Mamey Sapote ๐Ÿงก

 The Mamey Sapote is a very popular fruit in Florida, the Caribbean islands, and Central America. The fruit was cultivated by the native peoples of Central America for hundred of years. It is this fruit that kept Cortes and his army alive on their famous march from Mexico City to Honduras.

The fruit is large, up to 25cm long with orange-pink flesh tasting somewhat like a flavorful pumpkin. The interesting fruit is usually eaten fresh out of hand, but can also be enjoyed in desserts and drinks. Even though it is of tropical origin, the Mamey will grow and bear very well in the subtropics as long as it is protected from frosts when young #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #mameysapote

The Dwarf Macadamia ๐ŸŒฟ

 If you have limited space, consider a Dwarf Macadamia nut tree. They reach a size of 2-4m when fully established (around half the height of a regular sized macadamia tree), produce prolific quantities of smaller-sized nuts and are suitable for growing in pots.

The showstopping Sugar Maple ๐Ÿ

 With spectacular red, yellow or orange autumn foliage, the Sugar Maple is a showstopper. This beautiful tree prefers rich, moist, well-drained soil in a protected, shady position with full sun when mature.

The tree may grow to a height of 40 metres. It has a dense crown of leaves, which turn various shades of gold to red in Autumn.

The Sugar Maple is the principle source of Maple Sap ๐Ÿ #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #mapletree #sugarmaple

Sweet Loquat ๐Ÿ’›

 The Nagasakiwase Loquat is the best Japanese variety so far - it has deep orange flesh, high flesh/seed ratio and very sweet flavour. It is the earliest loquat variety to ripen. Thinning fruit will enhance fruit size.

The Nagasakiwase often has 2 crops a year in the subtropics. The first crop in April/May then again in August. We have found by cincturing in summer, the August crop is much larger and has better fruit size #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #loquat #backyardfruit
