You've purchased your first Fruit Salad Tree, now what? Our trees are delivered via Australia Post and you'll receive an email notification when your tree is despatched so you have an indication of when it will arrive. In the meantime, you can prepare for when your tree arrives. Fruit Salad Trees can be planted in the ground or in pots.
Plant your tree late in the day when the weather is cooler if you have the option.
It's best to replace with a larger pot each year as the tree grows so that you'll end up with a large pot which is a similar to half of a wine barrel in size. You can keep the same pot size, however, note that the size of the tree and the amount of normal size fruit will be determined by the size of the pot.

Plant your trees at least three metres apart if you want the canopies of neighbouring trees to touch when the trees are full grown. If you are concerned about your soil quality, plant your tree on top of the ground and mound soil up onto it. This will prevent your trees from becoming waterlogged.

Fruit Salad Trees love the sun, so best to position where they can enjoy full sun, at least half a day's worth of sun and in a spot where they are sheltered from the wind if possible.
Citrus Fruit Salad Trees require sun all year round and Apple and Stone Fruit Salad Trees are dormant only during late Autumn and early Winter months when the sun is not required.
Here at Fruit Salad Trees, we stock a wide range of fruit trees, which all boast different fruit on the same tree. Each fruit variety retains its own flavour, appearance and ripening time. We graft citrus, stonefruit and multi-apple trees.
Our fast fruiting trees can be grown in the ground, or in pots on your balcony.

It is believed that eating an apple every day reduces the risk of having a stroke and lowers bad cholesterol. Apples are high in fibre and Vitamin C and low in sodium (salt) and calories. There are a few different varieties of apples available on our Fruit Salad Trees, that not only look fantastic when they are growing, but they taste better than anything you will purchase in a store. Best of all you know you have grown them yourself!
Your Fruit Salad Tree is beginning to bear its first fruit - it's a momentous occasion! You'll be tempted to sit back and let your tree continue to develop its array of different fruit, however, it's best to let the tree use its energy to grow sturdy framework and the first fruit can pull down the young branches.
