AMERICAN PAWPAW - sold out (Asimina triloba) PB 10 50cm

SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON. ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL GO IN THE QUEUE FOR DELIVERY NEXT SEASON [OCT 2017 - MARCH 2018]

This so-called pawpaw is actually not a pawpaw at all. It is related to the cherimoya, and is a great choice if you want that tropical taste but live in an area that is too cold for most subtropical fruits. It is hardy to -25 degrees, but fruits well even here in the north. A medium-sized tree that prefers full sun but will also grow in part shade,it should start fruiting 4-6 years after planting. Fruit are smallish[approx 10cm long], sweet and reminiscent of a cross between a banana and a mango - delicious and plentiful. Like cherimoya, they contain quite a lot of seeds. The trees can reach 5-7m. You will need two for pollination.

BANANA
It is not difficult to grow your own bananas (free from chemicals!) so give it a go. They fruit well when given some shelter from wind, plenty of nutrients (gross feeders) and water. When the bananas are ripe cut out the whole palm and chop it up with the spade and leave around the base of suckers for compost. The plants will send out more shoots so they are continuous. They must be thinned each year to 3 or 4 suckers around each main palm. The number of bananas in our bunches is related to the circumference of the banana palm at the ground. If you look after your plants they will be large and have a strong thick base. Except for the dwarf varieties, they will grow to 3-4m tall.

BRAZILIAN GRAPE - sold out (Jaboticaba cauliflora, myrciaria cauliflora) PB 5 25cm

SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON. ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL GO IN THE QUEUE FOR DELIVERY NEXT SEASON [OCT 2017 - MARCH 2018]

Sweet juicy fruit borne directly on the trunk makes this attractive shrub a great feature in any garden. These plants are from fast-bearing hybrid seeds and have been known to start fruiting in 3 or 4 years from planting. The fruit is similar to a red grape, but larger and even more delicious. The trees, which are slow growing, will eventually reach 3-5m, but take at least 15 years to get there. They are easily grown in areas that have light or no frost, and will tolerate dry conditions and poor soils, though they will do better for some fertiliser and regular water. They do not like to be waterlogged. They can bear several crops a year and are best eaten fresh, though they also make good jam and wine.
