South Seas Salad Tree: Tropical Delight

Culinary Purposes:

The South Seas Salad Tree (Syzygium malaccense) offers a tropical twist to your culinary creations. While the tree produces vibrant, pear-shaped fruits that are visually stunning, they are not typically used for culinary purposes due to their mild flavor and slightly grainy texture. However, the fruits can be enjoyed fresh as a refreshing snack or added to fruit salads for an exotic touch.

Planting & Care
Fruitscaping with Herbs & Veggies

Every good kitchen garden needs to have an herb section. A walk through a garden planted with herbs is truly a sensual experience. Their beautifully textured leaves invite you to stop and touch them, and then reward you with a delightful array of heavenly scents. Herbs can serve many functions in the edible landscape, creepers like oregano, mints and thyme make great ground cover. Low growers like sage, chives and perennial onions are good for edging flower beds and will help in insect control. Taller evergreens like rosemary are wonderful used as low hedges or for planting around the foundation of houses. Herbs also lend themselves well to being grown in containers. Tuck a few pots close to the kitchen so they’ll be handy when you need them.

Growing your own herbs is well worth the effort. The quality and flavor of fresh picked herbs is so much better than the dried products you find in the grocery store. Our climate makes it possible to grow a very wide range of herbs. The hot humid summer are perfect for herbs like basil, Thai ginger and tea camellias. Try the more Mediterranean herbs like lavender,  sage and Thyme in the winter time, they love the cool and are less apt to succumb to fungus.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
