Blackberry - Thornless Chester

$18.75 ($14.90-$23.90 choose a size)

Berries are large, flavorful, very sweet, high quality fruit; hardy, productive, disease resistant. This should not be confused with the wild blackberry, this is a thornless variety with less vigour. It prefers cooler climates for best fruit production. The plant is propagated by cutting and is taken from the thornless parent and is a clone. The roots, however, can still occasionally revert to producing thorny stems and these must be managed.

Quince - Smyrna

$49.00 ($39.00-$49.00 choose a size)

Add some gourmet to your garden! The quince is valued for its high pectin content and is used frequently in jams, jellies and cosmetics. This fruit is one of the few that must be cooked as it is too tart, hard and unpalatable to eat raw. The quince tree has been cultivated by people for thousands of years. Originating from Turkey and Iran this is a fruit with a fascinating history, it features strongly in the history and mythology of both Greece and Rome. Trees are very long lived and have a beautiful, gnarly twisted appearance, they are exceptionally hardy and can withstand both periods of dry and severe cold. 'Smyrna' is a Turkish variety of Quince with extremely large fruit, light yellow flesh and bright yellow skin. It can be grown as an attractive tree (or multi-stemmed shrub) and has dark green foliage and a very showy bloom

Cherry - Stella

$79.00 ($49.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A large sweet red to dark red cherry. Stella is an excellent choice for backyards as it is compact, growing to about 4 x 4m. Mid - late season maturity. High chill, requires cold winters for satisfactory fruiting

Berry - Loganberry Thornless

$17.90 ($17.90-$19.75 choose a size)

Cross between the blackberry and the red raspberry. The long cylindrical berry is a delightful dusky purple-red when ripe. The aromatic fruit becomes sweeter when sun-ripened and is delicious eaten fresh or used in preserves and desserts. The plant is propagated by cutting and is taken from the thornless parent and is a clone. The roots, however, can still occasionally revert to producing thorny stems and these must be managed.

Currant - Black

Potato peels or old potatoes chopped up should be placed or dug in near the roots, or water the plant around the roots with a mixture of potato starch and water. The shrub just loves it and you end up with big juicy berries when they start fruiting

Need more chill for these than we receive. Fruiting has been poor.
