Leek - Perennial UT
Allium ampeloprasum var. porrum
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. Multiplier leeks, perpetual leeks
Rare and hard to find but a garden jewel when you do. These grow just like normal leeks except each plant regularly produces young plants (offsets) around the base. Once these are transplanted they will grow to a full size leek or they can be harvested and used like spring onions. Leeks prefer a cool, rich soil but are also extremely hardy and pest resistant. They grow in full sun to part shade. A delicious vegetable to use in soups, stews, quiches and baked alone. The white shaft plus 10 - 15 cm of the green leaves are eaten.

Provided in mini pots.

In cooking it is used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food.

Paw Paw 'Red Army' UT
Carica papaya
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. Red Fleshed Paw Paw.
'Red Army' is a bisexual, fast growing, early fruiting, red fleshed pawpaw. Plants can begin fruiting at only 80 cm high. Home-grown paw paw ripened on the tree beats the bought variety hands down. These are great fruit trees for small gardens as they are compact growers and have the added advantage of sweet-smelling flowers. Paw paws are suitable for subtropical and tropical areas and will be damaged by frost. They are very easy to grow and remain productive trees for around 5-6 years. In warm frost-free areas fruits will ripen all year round and healthy trees can produce 25-30 kg of fruit a season. For reliable pollination plant in groups of three.

Provided as tubestock.

Pepino 'Kendall Gold' UT
Solanum muricatum
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. pepino dulce
The pepino is a native of the Andes in South America. It is in the tomato family and grows as a small sprawling bush 80 - 100 cm tall. 'Kendall Gold' is an improved selection that produces yellow fruit striped with purple that has a sweet, delicate, mild flavour, similar to a melon. It does best in warm climates but will tolerate light frost. It is suited to fertile, moist soils in full sun although it will grow in partial shade it will be less fruitful. It is easy to strike from cuttings; new bushes should be planted every few years as it bears less with age. The sprawling habit makes it useful as a groundcover but growing it on a trellis protects the fruit from attack by slugs and snails and from rotting from contact with the soil. Suitable for warm temperate and subtropical areas.

Provided as tubestock.
