  • Title: Engall's Nursery - History - From our early days at Carlingford Rd to the present at Dural.
    Descriptive info: Engall’s Nursery was started in 1946 by William Engall after returning from the war.. Originally called ‘Weona Nursery’, the business started in the backyard in Carlingford Road Epping.. Plants were grown on various rental properties in the district and sold through the Carlingford Road site.. In those days the plants were grown in the ground.. In winter they were dug and sold bare rooted.. Dispatch consisted of soaking the roots in a muddy solution in an old bath tub, (the puddle tub) then enclosing in wet and dry straw and wrapping in brown paper and finished with an intricate web of bailing twine.. These packages were then sent via rail all over Australia.. William Engall died at the young age of forty-nine.. His wife, Eunice and son, Robert continued to run the family nursery.. Growing techniques evolved and the citrus trees began being grown in containers.. As plastic pots were yet to be invented, the growing containers were old jam and kerosene tins.. They had their tops cut out, sharp  ...   leaving his wife Fay and children, Gail and Mark to continue the family business.. Gail continued the legacy at the Carlingford Road site, transforming it into a retail garden centre.. Mark focused on updating production processes and facilities, improving the Dural nursery into the impressive 4 hectare production nursery that it is today.. In 2006 another chapter evolved in Engall’s Nursery, with Fay retiring and ownership was passed on to Mark and his wife Fiona.. The hard decision was made to close the Carlingford Road nursery and concentrate on the one site at Dural.. This has enabled Engall’s Nursery to do what we do best and grow quality plants, securing the nursery to be one day passed onto the fourth generation.. Congratulations.. Mark Engall.. Winner of 2010 NGIA Young Leader Award.. Owner of Engall's Nursery, Mark Engall, was announced the Nursery and Garden Industry of Australia's Young Leader of The Year 2010.. The well deserving Mark Engall accepted his award at the National Conference in Darwin, April 2010.. Congratulations once again..

  • Title: Engall's Nursery - Citrus Trees - Lemons, Limes, Oranges, Mandarins and many more.
    Descriptive info: Citrus Overview.. Citrus were first introduced to Australia with the first fleet.. Captain James Cook and his fellow explorers knew the nutritional value of the humble citrus.. Nearly 220 years later we are still proudly growing some of the same varieties that were bought here by the first fleet.. Citrus are widely known for their delicious edible fruit and their many uses, from picking and eating straight from the tree, adding exotic flavours and that certain zing to cooking, making jams or marmalades, delicious deserts, an unusual garnish, flavouring your favourite alcoholic beverage or simply juicing for a refreshing drink.. Yet there is much more beauty to citrus than just their wonderful fruit.. Citrus trees also produce an abundance of heavenly scented flowers that can be cut and used as a posy or simply enjoyed on the tree filling the surrounding garden with a beautiful fragrance.. Heavenly scented citrus flowers.. The varied foliage of citrus trees is another magnificent asset.. From small pointy leaves of a.. chinotto,.. the unusual double lobed leaves of a.. kaffir lime.. , to the large dark glossy green foliage of a.. red grapefruit.. The evergreen foliage produces an attractive shrub to small tree.. Citrus are a  ...   ideal for a sunny balcony or courtyard.. If you don t have a citrus tree in your garden, it s certainly time to plant and reap the rewards.. With over 40 different varieties, there is certainly no better place to source your trees then here at Engall s Nursery.. All our trees are specially.. budded.. (grafted) onto a suitable rootstock.. This produces a superior tree that is more vigorous, and stronger growing in a wider range of soil and climatic conditions, produces better quality fruit years earlier and is more resistant to a range of pest and diseases.. We strongly advise to avoid disappointment never plant a seedling or cutting grown citrus tree.. As there are so many different varieties of citrus, the following pages contain detailed information and descriptions, to help you choose a suitable variety for your garden.. To find out more about any of our Citrus trees click on the links below.. Engall's Expert TIps..

    Descriptive info: Lemons (Citrus limon).. EUREKA LEMON (Citrus limon 'Eureka').. The more traditional (your grandmother probably had one), larger growing backyard lemon.. Although can grow tall, regularly pruning encourages a bushier habit that is easier to maintain..

  • Title: Engall's Nursery - Lime Trees - Tahitian Lime, Kaffir Lime, Finger Lime and many more.
    Descriptive info: FINGER LIME.. An Australian native which originated in the rainforests of Queensland.. Produces an unusual finger shaped fruit that has individual vesicles inside that pop out when squeezed.. Looks very similar to caviar.. Has a strong limey taste.. Great for drinks, useds as a garnish or mixed through salads.. PINK ICE - Purplish to brown skin on the outside with clear to pink vesicles on the inside.. Fruits well with a great flavour.. ALSTONVILLE - Greenish brown on the outside with clear to green vesicles.. MORE VARIETIES COMING SOON!.. TAHITIAN LIME (Citrus latifolia).. This is the most popular lime tree.. The Tahitian produces delicious juicy seedless limes that are often picked small and green, when they are stronger in flavour.. Alternatively they can be left to ripen on the tree to a light yellow colour; this is when they become their juiciest.. The main harvest is late autumn to mid-winter, although they can bear a smaller summer crop.. Limes are a great alternative to lemons in all forms of cooking and taste great in a beer.. The tree is a medium grower with a lovely dense branching habit, making them ideal for the garden or a pot.. Dwarf Tahitian Lime.. WEST INDIAN LIME (Citrus aurantifolia).. Similar to the Tahitian lime, with a smaller stronger flavoured fruit, that also turns from green to a light yellow colour when fully ripe.. A smaller growing tree than the Tahitian that is very susceptible to  ...   of kaffir lime sold throughout Australia, some with large thorns.. Our superior strain has small thorns and a larger leaf that is a lot more aromatic.. RANGPUR LIME (Citrus limonia).. The Rangpur is often mistaken for a mandarin as is fruits look much closer to mandarins than limes.. It is easily peeled and.. can be broken into segments like a mandarin, but it has a distinct strong acidic lime flavour.. The tree is very vigorous and is sometimes used as a rootstock because of this strong growing trait.. It is more cold tolerant than all the other limes.. It produces an abundance of fruit from late autumn through to spring.. If you can overlook a lime fruit being orange in colour, then this is a fantastic choice.. INDONESIAN LIME.. The Indonesian lime is only a recent introduction to Australia and to our knowledge we at Engall s are the only growers in Australia.. The Indonesian lime is only a small growing tree with dense bushy light green foliage.. The fruit are small (cumquat sized) and flat in shape turning from green to yellow when ripe, mainly in winter.. The fruit is used in cooking, especially to marinate meats.. Stock is limited and a pre order is often required.. Engall's Expert Tip.. Squeeze your abundant crop of limes into ice cube trays and freeze them for use in the off season.. Remove the fruit from your Kaffir lime to encourage more foliage growth..

  • Title: Engall's Nursery - Orange Trees - Washington Navel, Valencia, Arnold Blood and lots more.
    Descriptive info: WASHINGTON NAVEL ORANGE (Citrus sinensis Washington Navel ).. The Washington Navel is the most popular backyard orange grown in Australia.. It is a small to medium sized tree that produces oranges ripening in mid winter.. Oranges are medium to large, (depending on the quantity of fruit set), and very sweet and juicy.. Skin is relatively easy to peel and being a navel, the fruit is seedless.. Also see.. LANES LATE NAVEL ORANGE (Citrus sinensis Lanes Late Navel ).. Almost identical to the Washington Navel in all aspects apart from the fruit ripening a couple of months later, late Winter into early Spring.. This makes it an ideal tree to plant alongside a Washington to extend the harvesting time of Navel oranges.. NAVELINA ORANGE.. (Citrus sinensis Navelina ).. Fruit ripens end of April into May, making it a fantastic early season navel orange, which is sweet, seedless and juicy.. Fruit can be slightly oblong in shape and has a dark orange skin.. The tree is compact and bushy.. For those gardeners with space, planting a Navelina, Washington and Lanes Late will find themselves harvesting Navels for up to six months of the year.. NEWHALL NAVEL ORANGE (Citrus sinensis Newhall ).. This is only a new variety to Engall s list and is still being trialled.. The fruit is oval in shape, making it look unusual.. Aside from this unusual shape, the fruit is the sweetest navel we have tasted and this variety is sure to be a winner!.. VALENCIA ORANGE (Citrus sinensis Valencia ).. Commonly referred to as a juicing orange, the Valencia fruit are medium in size with a distinctive, fresh tang.. Valencia s best traits being that the fruit will hang on the tree for months, becoming sweeter the longer it is left on the tree.. Beginning to ripen in winter the fruit can  ...   pigmentation.. Although a blood orange, it will produce fruit with little or no blood colour in the Sydney climate.. The same variety grown in a hotter dryer climate with cooler nights will produce a more regular distinct red pigmentation.. BLOOD ORANGE ARNOLD (Citrus sinensis Arnold Blood ).. Arnold blood a newer variety, discovered by Mike Arnold in South Australia.. This variety produces a good red pigmentation in Sydney and coastal climates, although does produce better colour in cooler climates.. The smallish, fruit ripens mid winter and has a distinctive tang with the red pigmentation.. The tree is also small and bushy, making it suitable for pots or a small garden.. CARA CARA BLOOD ORANGE (Citrus sinensis Cara Cara ).. Cara Cara blood orange is only a new addition to Engall s list and hasn t been fully evaluated.. It is a Navel orange producing large seedless fruit that are very sweet.. Unlike other blood oranges, that produce the red pigmentation along the veins in the flesh of the fruit, the Cara flesh is all the same colour.. Temperature can also affect the colouring and as seen in the above photo, this fruit grown in Dural, produced a pink flesh inside.. SEVILLE (Citrus aurantium).. Seville is the sour orange, used for making jams and marmalades.. It has large flattish fruit which look quiet appealing, but once cut and tasted it is soon appreciated that these oranges are only meant for cooking.. They have a sharp bitter tang and many seeds.. The fruit ripens in mid- winter.. It is a strong growing tree.. Choose early varieties, such as Navelina, for fruit early in the season and plant along side varieties such as Washington and lanes Late Navel to extend your fruiting harvest through to august.. Go even further by planting a Valencia to have Oranges well into October..

  • Title: Engall's Nursery - Mandarin Trees - Imperial, Emperor, Seedless, plus many more.
    Descriptive info: MANDARINS (Citrus reticulata).. IMPERIAL MANDARIN (Citrus reticulata Imperial).. Australia s most popular grown commercial mandarin, also ideal for the backyard producing excellent quality fruit.. They are medium to large in size, easy to peel, juicy and a great strong flavour, with a few seeds.. Fruit ripens late autumn, into early winter.. A strong growing tree, with upright growth.. Increase the size of the fruit by thinning as it is developing.. If you only have room for one mandarin, this is the one for you.. Dwarf Imperial Mandarin.. EMPEROR MANDARIN (Citrus reticulata Emperor ).. Another great mandarin, which produces excellent fruit year after year.. Large puffy skin that forms completely separate from the flesh makes this mandarin the easiest to peel.. Good flavour, a few seeds and a strong growing tree.. Fruit ripens mid winter, after the Imperial.. To harvest mandarins over a longer period, plant both an Imperial and Emperor.. ROBBIE ENGALL S SEEDLESS MANDARIN (Citrus unshiu).. This is a superior form of Satsuma mandarin, selected by the late Robbie Engall.. It is a fantastic mandarin for the kids, with large fruit, puffy skin, making it easy to peel, mild flavour and no seeds.. Fruit ripens early, in April and May on a small growing tree, making it ideal for the courtyard garden or in a pot.. Encourage your kids to be  ...   winter.. Easy to peel skin with seeds.. Unfortunately the Thorny mandarin tends to bi-annual crop, cropping very heavily one year and little to no fruit the following year.. Although this is a drawback, if you have the room, it is worthwhile planting a thorny as it has the sweetest of all mandarins.. CLEMENTINE MANDARIN (Citrus reticulata Clementine ).. There are many different strains, all sold under the name of clementine.. The variety, we grow is Nules clementine, a newer variety to Australia.. Fruit is medium sized, easy to peel with a good flavour and a few seeds.. The fruit ripens mid winter.. A vigorous tree.. HONEY MURCOTT MANDARIN.. Although named a mandarin, this variety of unknown parentage is more like a mandarin cross orange.. The large fruit is flat in shape, with a tight skin and can be seedy.. It has a distinct flavour unlike other mandarins, sweet but different.. The fruit ripens late, August into September, making it an ideal addition to the home orchard to increase the harvesting time of mandarins.. Strong growing, upright tree.. Because of their dense foliage and colourful fruit Mandarins make great espaliers and hedges.. Mandarins can be biennial (crops every two years).. To minimise this occurring remove a small percentage of developing fruits (green fruit the size of a 10 cent piece) on heavy crops..

It is by far the most popular grown cumquat in Australia.. It is a fantastic, bushy, dense foliaged tree, making it ideal as a pot specimen, or standardised into a topiary ball or even used as a hedge.. The fruit when ripe, mid winter, are a bright orange colour, making a fabulous display against the green foliage.. For a cumquat, the fruit can be quite large, up to golf ball in size..

VARIEGATED CUMQUAT (Calamondin variegata ).. The variegated cumquat is a sport of the calamondin that has the unusual variegation on  ...   of the fruit.. The fruit is eaten whole, skin and all.. The inside is still quite sour, but the skin has the sweeter flavour, when eaten together it produces an unusual refreshing flavour.. Often, people will bite the end off and squeeze out the excess juice, removing more off the sour flavour and leaving the sweeter flavour of the skin.. The fruit can be a highly sought after delicacy, often fetching up to $30 per kilo in fruit shops.. Fruit ripens mid to late winter and always crops very heavily, making a spectacular display against the dark green foliage.. The tree is smaller growing and dwarf in nature, making it ideal for pots and has even been used in bonsai.. MARUMI CUMQUAT (Fortunella japonica Marumi ).. Very similar to the Nagami.. The marumi is only a small growing, with a dense and bushy habit.. The fruit is round in shape, tight skin and sour.. Not as popular as the other cumquats, although some Asian communities insist this is the best cumquat of all.. To keep your Cumquats nice and bushy prune them seasonally directly after fruiting in late winter..

The variety grown at Engall s, ripens with a yellow skin and slightly pink tinged flesh.. Because of their large, heavy fruit you may need to support low growing fruit with stakes and plant ties..
