Fruit Salad Trees allow you to grow different and delectable fruit on the same tree. They are perfect for pots on your balcony or in your edible garden. 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, and here's a handy guide for what to buy and what to do in the lead up to receiving your tree!
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.

Your soils contain many nutrients that your plants require, some are only necessary in small doses and others need to be constantly acquired by your plants to assist with their day to day living. Most people have heard of NPK, but do you know what it represents and how it assists the health of your tree and how other elements benefit or harm your garden?
