Midyim Berries

Midyim berries are one of Australia’s tastiest bush tucker foods, with a sweet and tangy flavour that has a delightfully subtle hint of spice.

Parsley

Parsley is a must have in any self-respecting home garden, with culinary and medicinal uses that have been celebrated for centuries. 

Nasturtium

Nasturtium is a ridiculously easy-to-grow plant whose leaves, flowers and seeds are all edible! They also look good in the garden, repel aphids and perform a host of companion planting duties. We love ’em!

Warrigal Greens

Packing protein and a choice selection of vitamins and minerals, these greens are a ready addition to your garden and your gullet.

Avocados

The amazing avocado – delicious, nutrient dense and the source of last year’s millenials-vs-millionaire great smashed avo/mortgage debate. Still, what could be better than having a ready source of avos in your backyard?

Asparagus

Beetroot

Beetroot is of exceptional nutritional value; especially the greens, which are rich in calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. The greens should not be overlooked; they can be cooked up and enjoyed in the same way as spinach.

Bullhorn Capsicums

Bull’s Horn (or Cow Horn) Capsicum is an old Italian heirloom variety of sweet capsicum that produces curved fruits up to 20cm long. The fruits can be harvested green or red after 70-90 days

Rocoto Tree Chilli
