Exotic Fruit Collection


  • We have carefully curated an extraordinary collection of our mediterranean fruit shrubs which will compliment any garden, patio or balcony space.

  • The rare Exotic Fruit collection contains one of each plant in either an 8cm or 9cm pot.

  • Strawberry Grape (light blue) – Vitis labrusca Isabella: Vitis labrusca Isabella, also known as the Fragolino is a cross between the Vitis labrusca Concord (the coldest tolerant grapevine) and the Vitis vinifera. It is the fast growing, famous strawberry tasting grape which when ripened, the skin is a dark purple and has yellow-green flesh. During the summer from May-June it produces lovely pink new shoots and small yellow flowers that are sweetly scented. When the climber is placed in a hot position against a South facing wall and receives the appropriate growing conditions, large bunches of blue-black grapes are produced. They can be as thick as 2cm, seedless and have a musky aroma but taste sweet, used to make wine.
  • Pink Fig – Ficus carica Signora: Very light brown, almost pinkish skinned, but sweet, honey coloured flesh. It is of the medium fruited Spanish variety. It has a very good cold tolerance meaning it is great for the UK climate. Self-pollinating, so no need of the fig wasp for pollination. The fig is a well known fruit, cultivated since ancient times and grows wild in dry and sunny areas. It is mostly cultivated around the world for its fruits but it is also a great architectural plant with very ornamental leaves, plus the foliage turns yellowish in the Autumn. 
  • Large Fruited Pomegranate – Punica granatum 'Wonderful': From the Italian variety, this is a well fruiting and very hardy plant which produces large, red fruits with purple flesh and numerous red flowers. It has a compact habit with its ultimate height reaching 1-1.5m. Any established plants will flower freely on any good soil. It prefers a hot position, for example against a south facing wall but will flower in a good protected sunny position. It is easy to grow and is well suitable for the patio where it can be overwintered.
