Fruit Trees are the perfect addition to any backyard, veranda or patio. Manawee carries a vast selection of popular fruiting trees including: Citrus, avocados, mangoes, acerola, olives, macadamia nuts, custard apples, mulberries, tamarillos, paw paw and many more.
We also also stock patio/dwarf varieties including ‘Lots-of-Lemons’, Tahitian ‘Sublime’ and Kaffir ‘Thai Lime’. These are a perfect option for pots, with lots of fruit on a smaller shrub.
Simon explains, everything from citrus trees to blueberries can be grown in coastal gardens and most varieties enjoy a year-round planting season. “Any citrus does well in coastal climates from lemons to limes and oranges,” he says. “If you want something smaller, low-chill blueberries do well in pots, perfect for balconies.”
If you live in the hinterland, blueberries love the slightly colder climate and can thrive in these conditions rewarding you with an abundance of fruit. If you want a wider variety, Simon reveals a new low-chill variety of stone fruits can be grown in the hinterland. This tropical variety of stone fruits doesn’t need such a long cold-set period, so you can enjoy peaches, plums and nectarines grown right in your own backyard.”
