  • Apple trees

    Apple trees (9)

    Apple trees this year include a great many unusual and old-fashioned fruits (we have over 100 varieties in our orchard on the farm). We offer a selection of these in our catalogue each year, along with some of the best of our modern apples. Apple trees this year come grafted on MM106 rootstocks, a semi dwarfing rootstock which will grow to somewhere between 2.5 and 3.5 metres high, and are very easy to keep pruned lower than this if you want to. Dwarf apple trees are also offered this year, grafted onto M26 rootstocks, which give a two metre high tree - these are not listed here - you need to look in the dwarf apple trees section of the shop to find them. Some apple tree varieties are labelled ‘triploid’, meaning they do not have viable pollen to cross pollinate another tree, so don’t choose one of these with only one other variety, or the triploid will get pollinated, but the other variety won’t – you will need a third variety to do this. Why bother with triploid apples then? Because they represent some of the best apples we know.
  • Crab Apple Trees

    Crab Apple Trees (4)

    Crab apple trees are plants most often used for their wonderful ornamental value, but also esteemed for the crab apple jelly that can be made from their fruits, as well as being a handy addition to apple cider brews that need a bit of extra kick
  • Cider Apples

    Cider Apples (17)

    ***Orchard quantities of many cider varieties available*** ***CIDER APPLE DISCOUNTS - on large orders of cider apples, contact us for a quote*** Cider apples these days are used by blending a mixture of different apple varieties together. However in times past there were traditional varieties from which cider was pressed using one variety alone. The cider apples we offer were usually from particular regions of England and France, where each apple made a local drink with its own special qualities, allowing the natives to make their own unique brews from their own regional apples.
  • Pear Trees

    Pear Trees (12)

    Pear trees represent some of the finest varieties in our finest heritage fruit collection. Pears are grafted onto Calleryana D6 rootstocks, which yield a standard sized pear tree if trained as a vase or central leader tree. In our own orchard, we also grow our espaliered pears on these rootstocks, and while they require a bit more care to train and keep down low as an espalier, they are more hardy than the fully dwarf pears, and do better in more difficult soils and drought conditions.
  • Perry Pear Trees

    Perry Pear Trees (2)

    ***PERRY PEARS AVAILABLE TO ORDER IN COMMERCIAL QUANTITIES, GOOD DISCOUNTS contact us for a quote *** Perry pear trees are grown in order to produce a similar drink to cider. Perry pears are sometimes called snow pears, which are a slightly different species to the European pears. Perry varieties have a high quantity of tannins in the juice. Perry pear trees have been known to live up to 400 years, and in the best situations, to grow to a height of fifty metres. Mature trees can frequently give rise to crops of one tonne, often two.
  • Quinces

    Quinces (4)

    Quinces are a terrific little home garden tree, which are very hardy – will tolerate a wet soil, and also have some drought tolerance, making them a good tree for difficult areas. With a little bit of looking after (regular watering, pruning, fertilising) they will set a heavy crop of fruit, and when the fruit are ripening they send a very distinctive and tantalising aroma wafting around the garden, not to mention their very pretty ornamental flowers in Spring. Quinces are primarily used for making jams and jellies, but they are also dried and made into cider, they make a delicious paste (suitable for cheese platters), stewed with custard they’re a terrific desert….need I go on. Most of our quinces this year, (except Smyrna Large, and Champion Large), are offered on semi dwarfing rootstocks -they are grafted onto Quince A rootstocks, which yield a tree of about 2.5 - 3 metres height. They are very easy to keep pruned to a smaller size if desired, and will make a very good espalier as well. The Smyrna and Champion grow to larger trees - more like 3-4 metres.
  • Medlar Trees

    Medlar trees are a historical fruit tree commonly grown around Europe, and not just for their distinctive heirloom type fruits, but also for their beautiful white ornamental Spring time flower blossoms

  • Fig Trees

    Fig Trees (2)

    Fig trees are hardy customers with very good drought tolerance. They really are fruit trees from out of antiquity, up there with the oldest of known fruits still cultivated, known in Biblical times and well before, along with grapes and olives. The fruit from fig trees is either dried or eaten fresh - delicious, but is difficult to get in the market, as it has such a short shelf life, and it is actually at its best when eaten straight from the tree – hence the need to grow your own! It is cooked in breads, desserts and myriad other dishes, (some of the best cooked figs I ever ate were simply cut in half, sprinkled lightly with brown sugar, grilled and then dolloped with mascarpone cream…divine). To overcome their inability to be transported figs have been dried, which they are suited to with their high sugar content. The fruit of fig trees is also used to make a uniquely flavoured jam.
  • Persimmon Trees

    Persimmon Trees (6)

    Persimmon trees are a lovely ornamental specimen fruit tree, often with a semi weeping form, which gives a beautiful display of deep orange autumn leaves, and retains many of its orange coloured fruit after leaf fall, making it the prettiest fruit tree in the winter garden. The botanical word for persimmon trees is ‘diospyros’ meaning ‘food of the gods’, and it’s not far wrong either – the problem with these fruit being that they are often not left to ripen properly before eating, and they are very astringent when unripe. When ripe they are a delicious rich sweet flavour quite unlike any other fruit in the garden. Louis Glowinski suggests flavour is not unlike apricot jam.
  • Mulberry Trees

    Mulberry Trees (2)

    Mulberry trees are an old fashioned tree that used to be grown on many homesteads in earlier times. Yielding delicious black berry like fruit early in Spring, they also make a wonderful shade tree
  • Pomegranate Trees

Pomegranate fruits are used to make a refreshing drink – grenadine. A tough plant - very drought resistant, and withstands extremes of heat and cold, does well in pots, - best of all - pomegranate trees are very ornamental - both with their deep red - orange flowers, and large fruits
  • Almond-Trees

    Almond-Trees (4)

    Almond trees are grafted onto peach rootstocks, and yield trees of around 4 metres in best conditions. The Self Pollinating almond is a semi dwarf almond which will make a tree of three metres or less. Almond trees are one of the quickest nut trees to start bearing - sometimes taking only two years to crop
  • Hazelnut plants

    Hazelnut plants (6)

    Hazelnut plants are nut trees which make bear delicious nuts while growing into a lovely hedge or useful screening plant. One of the secrets with them is that they are wind pollinated, and we recommend growing at least three different types together in order to get adequate pollination to set good crops.
  • Walnut Trees

    Walnut Trees (7)

    Walnut trees produce a well known nut which is eaten fresh, (not too many at a time, as they are very rich), they keep flavour well when cooked and are used in ice-cream, cakes, breads, and sweets - maybe the most famous of which is the Greek Baklava. Walnut trees provide an essential ingredient in the very fine Waldorf salad.
  • Chestnut Trees

    Chestnut Trees (6)

    Chestnut trees yield nuts which are nutritionally very similar to potatoes and cereals, high in carbohydrates, low in fats and proteins, can be roasted, baked, boiled, pureed; very good for taking out in the bush and roasting over the campfire, (the smell of cooked chestnuts is very alluring) can be dried and ground into a useful flour, easy to harvest and prepare. Chestnut trees give good quantity of meat per nut. They will bear a modest crop on their own, but Chestnuts give heavier crops with pollination from a different variety of chestnut tree.
  • Oak Trees

    Oak Trees (4)

    Oak trees are not often thought of in terms of providing human food in our country, but were once a subsistence crop for many people in Europe. Oak trees yield acorns which can be boiled and baked, and the best varieties can actually be quite sweet and acceptable as a dish. Otherwise, pigs absolutely love acorns and are fattened on them, and even free ranged under oak trees, with great success.

  • Black Currants

    Black Currants (1)

    Black Currants are woody deciduous bushes to 1.5 metres. Black Currant plants have a very distinctive scent when you brush past them, and the currants have a very intense colour and flavour. Black Currant fruits are one of the richest sources of Vitamin C, often used to make a syrup or cordial, and a good condiment, great for jams and jellies.
  • Red Currant plants

Offered as a pollinating pair - a male and female plant - the female variety is Sirora. Pistachios are suited to marginal land, limited irrigation, and will do particularly well with a hot, dry, rainfree summer / autumn.

  • Avocados

    Avocados (2)

    This year the Hass avocados come in a choice of two sizes - regular (about 1.2 -1.4m high) and advanced (1.6 - 2.0 metres high) ***We don’t freight these out, so only order them if you are planning to contact us and pick them up from the farm***
  • Blueberries

    Blueberries (2)

    **Blueberries are supplied as potted plants in 140 mm pots, plants are usually around one foot tall** Blueberries if grown properly can produce up to 4 kg of fruit in a year. (that's a lot of fruit, given the size of the berries) As another grower pointed out - at $6.00 per 150 gram punnet, 4 kg equals 24 punnets of fruit, and this potentially adds up to a whopping $144 of fruit off the one bush over one season!! Not a bad return on your investment.

Closed for the 2020 season. Opening really soon for 2021 - CHECK BACK SOON
