Comments: -

A cold-hardy variety I thought I would give a try.  I 've eaten a round variety of Canistel from Tropical Fruit World and they were delicious- a thick, but smooth textured fruit whose flavour was very much like 'Juicy Fruit chewing gum' - I think it would be nice in smoothies.  The fruit seems decorative too, when hanging on the tree.

(Note: now winter, 2012. Temp. to 6C, plant unaffected. Will probably get slightly colder by about 1-1.5C, but looking good) 

Planted: 2012

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun
