ALLSPICE (pimenta dioica) PB5 40cm
This is the plant that produces the berries that are dried to produce allspice. You can also use the fresh leaves for the same purpose. The tree is more in the tropical range but will grow and produce in a frost free environment, or can be grown indoors. It is dioecious [male or female] so if you want the berries you will need to plant at least 3 to have a fair chance of getting both sexes. But if you only want the leaves, then one plant will do. Plant in full sun in well drained soil and water regularly. Mildly frost tolerant when established.

ATEMOYA (Annona atemoya) PB 10 50cm
This is a cross between the cherimoya and the sugar apple. The fruit is sweeter than cherimoya with a more complex flavour, and the texture is a little denser. The tree is bushier, but not particularly tall [so far anyway!] They grow easily here in the north, but are probably a little less cold tolerant than the cherimoya.

BANANA
It is not difficult to grow your own bananas (free from chemicals!) so give it a go. They fruit well when given some shelter from wind, plenty of nutrients (gross feeders) and water. When the bananas are ripe cut out the whole palm and chop it up with the spade and leave around the base of suckers for compost. The plants will send out more shoots so they are continuous. They must be thinned each year to 3 or 4 suckers around each main palm. The number of bananas in our bunches is related to the circumference of the banana palm at the ground. If you look after your plants they will be large and have a strong thick base. Except for the dwarf varieties, they will grow to 3-4m tall.

CAROB (Ceratonia siliqua) PB 10 50cm
This is a very useful and handsome tree that can grow to about 10m, though I've never seen one that size in NZ. It is quite hardy, but will not tolerate extreme frost. The leaves are round and bronze, and the tree bears long sweet pods that can be eaten raw, or dried and ground to provide carob powder, which is used as a chocolate substitute. Make sure you take the [very hard] seeds out first! it will grow in most soils and can withstand severe drought once established. The pods also make excellent high-calorie stock fodder. Occasionally the trees are hermaphrodite, but usually you will need both male and female for pollination. Seed grown, so best to plant at least 3 to have a good chance of getting both male and female. Expect fruit within six to eight years, but two or three summers irrigation will greatly speed growth, hasten fruiting, and increase the yield.

CASANA (cyphomandra cajanumensis) PB5 50cm
Lots of sweet passionfruit-like fruit, ripe May-September. The tree looks similar to tamarillo with the large soft leaves and requires similar growing conditions. They grow well when planted near the drip lines of larger trees with well established root systems that keep the water pumping up. This keeps the roots of the casana from becoming waterlogged. Bananas do that as well. Protect from wind and frost.

CASIMIROA (Casimiroa edulis, White Sapote) PB10 50cm
A native of the Mexican Highlands. Wonderful fruit the size of an apple with a thin green skin. The pulp is delicious, creamy and smooth, the flavour is sweet and rich. I don't know why this isn't as well known as the cherimoya, it is easily as delicious. Fruit ripens in May/June. Generally fruit is mature if it comes easily from the tree with a gentle twist, changes to a lighter colour and is slightly soft to touch. Handle gently as they bruise easily. Store in a cool spot and eat within a few days of ripening (hard to resist anyway!). The trees are prolific fruiters, hardy to some frost, long lived, large and spreading in habit. Best for being pruned. Occasionally the trees are self fertile, but nearly always you will need two varieties for pollination. These are all grafted trees and should fruit in 3 - 4 years.
