Most of these fruits will be familiar, however many people have never heard of a lemonade tree!The lemonade tree is a cross between a lemon and a mandarin and the flavour is just like lemonade, without the bubbles of course! However it does make a refreshing drink when juiced! The Lemonade variety originated in Australia and was launched and promoted by Engall's Nursery, even making front page of the Sydney morning Herald in the late Eighties. The Lemonade, looks like a lemon, but can be eaten straight from the tree, just like a mandarin or orange. It's a lot sweeter than a lemon with a refreshing tang. It truly has to be tasted to be appreciated.

So try something different on your next visit to the Margaret River wine region and call into Wonky Windmill Farm & Eco Park for a flavoursome fruit picking experience, friendly farm animals and freshly baked scones jam and cream! Yum!
