  • Japanese Medlar – Eriobotrya japonica: A small evergreen tree or shrub that is very ornamental with long, dark green, leathery leaves and yellow-white flowers that open on the tip of the branches. The flowers are produced during January-February, having the most sweetly scent one can imagine. For the succulent, sweet fruits to develop it requires almost a frost-free environment from February to May. Any time from early Spring to early Summer the fruits flesh when ripe becomes yellow orange. The flavour is the sweetest, a mixture of citrus and peach.
  • Hairless Mini Kiwi (Red Fruited) – Actinidia arguta ‘Missionario Chiandetti’ + ‘Cornell’ (pollinator) – 1+1 Plants: A vigorous climber with upright shoots and ovate-oblong leaves, originating from Eastern Asia. It produces bunches of tiny kiwis which have the most pleasant, sweet aroma and taste when ripe. They are known to have numerous beneficial properties and are extraordinarily rich in vitamin C. In early summer, bunches of fragrant white flowers bloom. This red skinned variety needs a pollinator to be able to fruit, so we will provide you with both male and female.
