Fruit Trees > Berries Vines and Climbers

The big three in the vine world are the Passionfruit, Kiwifruit and Grape. All three require their fare share of care but they will reward you with an abundance of fruit in a relatively short time. All need a strong trellis, the Kiwifruit and Grape are more suited to pergola planting due to their deciduous nature. If you need all-round cover then go with the passionfruit.
The Dragon Fruit - Pitaya is stunningly beautiful with a large flowers and melon like fruit. Berries, the most magnificent of the dessert fruits also need care because with neglect they will become the rampant monsters of your garden. They need a sunny airy location with some type of edging to stop them invading other parts of the garden. A trellis is a good idea as the long canes can be tied up allowing better circulation that will lesson the adverse effects of excess humidity. If growing in the subtropics it is highly recommended that some shade is provided.

Fragaria virginiana
One of the best fruits for small space, strawberries are perfect for pots and patios. The name strawberry is often thought to come from the fact that a mulch of straw is perfect to keep the fruit off the ground, however it more likely originates from the old name strewn berry referring to the fact that the runners love to spread themselves from the parent plant. A delightful fruit used in desserts and sauces, but always best picked and eaten straight from the garden.
