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

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.

This is a tart fruit, but quite tasty. Used to eat them as a kid in Europe.
