Echeveria 'Setosa'
This hybrid is always 'frilly'. The edges seem to get more colourful as the evenings cool in the fall. This hybrid is a 'show-er' and a 'grower' - easily growing to a foot and a half to 2 feet in diameter. A great specimen plant.

Echeveria 'Agavoides'
This species has been used to produce at least 6 hybrids. It has very thick juicy leaves and offsets slowly. In full sun the leaf tips appear burgundy with an almost sunburned appearance. Just a little lipstick to complement its gorgeous voluptuous form. Grows up to slightly larger than a one foot voluptuous diameter.
Echeveria 'Gypsy'
Unique in its leaf form which is almost a wide as it is long with a characteristic deep depressed 'valley' down the centre. A peachy brown colouring develops as the leaf matures from its green emergence. Around Solar Gardens we often refer to this echeveria as "how deep is my valley'?
Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg
A lovely rich purple Echeveria. Can reach a 6" diameter if happy. In this picture she's sporting a lovely diamond in her centre. Or is that a droplet of water?
Peperomia Graveolens
Luscious thick succulent green leaves with a wine burgundy underbelly. The flower racemes are a cool lime green colour, about 3 inches long and resemble a rat tale.

Persian Lime Olive Oil

This oil exhibits the flavour of Persian limes, also known as Tahitian limes. They are less acidic than key limes so don't have the bitterness that lends to key lime's unique flavour. It's great drizzled on chicken, fish and vegetables. Can be used as a marinade alone or in combination with other oils, balsamics or spices.
But really, (you'll just have to trust us on this one), try a good drizzle on air popped popcorn (plus salt of course). It's AMAZING! Also combine with coconut white balsamic for an EXTREMELY tasty salad dressing.

Recipes

GUACAMOLE WITH PERSIAN LIME OLIVE OIL

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt (or more to taste)
  • Freshly ground black popper to taste
  • 1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped yellow onion
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Persian Lime EVOO
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

MAKE: OK this is so impressive if you chop everything and dump it in a fancy bowl but don't mix it yet. When ready bring the bowl to the table (or couch if it's game time) and watch your guests salivate as you mix it right there releasing all the scents of all those ingredients right under their noses. Then grab some before anyone else because it won't last long. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups.

Hint: If you're preparing this in advance and not mixing it right away be sure to drizzle the fresh squeezed lime juice over the avocados so they don't turn brown.

SUBSTITUTE A FAVOURITE: If you like spicy feel free to throw in some Roasted Chili & Garlic Olive Oil or Harissa Olive Oil. A tablespoon or 2 of our Jalepeno Lime White Balsamic or our Lime White Balsamic  (or both) adds an extra punch of flavour.

Chipotle Olive Oil
This hot, but delicious olive oil has a nice forward flavour before the chili kicks in. Use on chicken, fish, veggies or rice. Also great in sauces, soups and stews. Mix with our Mango White Balsamic for a dynamic dressing.
