THESE PAGES WILL BE UPDATED IN THE AUTUMN, WITH VARIETIES THAT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE WINTER
‘ ALMOND’ – Ingrid £18.00 sold out
Ingrid is a reliable cropper which produces good quality nuts and shows reasonable leaf curl resistance in most parts of the UK. Best grown in a sheltered spot.
‘MEDLAR’ – Nottingham £20.00 sold out
This unusual fruit should either be left on the tree until after the first frosts, or stored in sawdust, until soft, this is known as bletting. Then the flesh can be scooped out with a small spoon, eat with wine and cheese, or for Medlar jelly. The tree has a attractive semi-weeping habit, with large beautiful white flowers in spring, leaves turn a nice copper colour in Autumn. Self-fertile.
‘QUINCE’ £20.00 sold out
Serbian Gold – A healthy, reliable variety that seems resistant to Quince Blight. Known in Serbia as ‘Leschovach’ It can be used for all culinary purposes including Quince Liqueur.
‘MULBERRY’ – Morus Nigra £16.00 sold out
Wonderful tree that is slow to establish but long term will produce fruit similar in looks to a Raspberry but with a more intense juicy flavour. The fruit is very delicate and falls from the tree when ripe and needs eating straight away, that’s the reason you don’t see Mulberries in the shops.
