We dispatch our trees every Tuesday, for delivery to most states of Australia.

For WA and Tasmania, we send trees on the first Tuesday of each month.

Due to the new Fire Ant restrictions, SA trees will also be sent on the first Tuesday of each month until further notice.

Which Fruit Salad Tree will grow in my climate?

Looking for a Fruit Salad Tree to suit your climate? There are varieties of fruits to suit all climate types.

You can look up your favourite fruit varieties and their requirements by looking at the Variety Information Table for each tree type on the Tree Info Pages here. 

Tropical and warm temperate climates

Stone Fruit Salad Trees grow well in Tropical and Warm climates, as well as Citrus and All Climate Apples.

We don't recommend growing Apricots North of Brisbane, or Apricots or Satsuma (blood) Plums in the Far North of Australia.

Cold climates

Cold climates can grow Stone Fruit, Citrus tree grows in all climates bar the extreme cold Alpine areas (-8 degrees), and the Cold Climate varieties of Apples.

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.

I purchased my fruit salad tree’s (Stone, Citrus and Apple) a couple of years ago. As we don’t have a large yard here in Kalgoorlie WA I have espaliered them. My Stone and Apple are doing really well. Citrus a bit slower. I have done a PH test on each as you had suggested. Off to Bunnings today to get some Lime Sulphur and Neem Oil. I enjoy being in my garden looking after my garden, it’s my meditation place. I recommend them to everyone. Thanks for the regular care emails. Much appreciated, Michelle.

We live in the Upper Esk Tasmania, winters can be extreme -9 – 15 what can you suggest in the way of stone fruit. We have apricots and peaches, but neither fruited due to the extreme frosts. I manage to grow citrus in pits inside for the winter.
