Midyim - Copper Tops

A great little plant, planting it to make a small hedge with lots of fruit. Have planted them in winter and they are putting out new redish growth. Used sheep manure mixed with soil and potting mix. Cant wait till I can harvest these little gems.

Midyim - Copper Tops

Lovely hardy bush, growing well all year round for me in a pot in Melbourne. Delicious unique fruit with a savoury spicy taste reminiscent of Christmas - nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon. Can't get enough; going to plant many more in my front garden!
