Fruity facts

  • The goji berry is high in antioxidants and tastes delicious. Find your goji berry plant a sun-loving spot in the garden and ensure it's planted in nutrient rich, organic soil for best results.
  • Paw paw is very easy to grow (as long as you keep the hot dry winds off it) and you'll be harvesting fruit within the first 12 months.
  • Dwarf avocados are a great way to have avocados at home. The dwarf variety will grow to a maximum of 3 metres and produce full-sized fruit, that sure beats spending $2.50 at the supermarket for one!
  • Dwarf mulberry trees are a great way to have the delicious berry in your backyard without it taking up all the available space.
