|Even tiny mango trees can produce.|
We grew this small tree from seed. It may turn out to be dwarf. This a five year old tree.

Perhaps we will have fruit this season.
|Not all eggs.|

Tamarillos are our most productive fruit. Use as a tomato or a desert fruit.
Although this Green Sapote is yet to fruit it still contributes a fabulous tropical evocative shape to our garden.

This Grevillia is loved by all of our local birds.
