PINEAPPLE - Queen (ananas comosus) PB5 50cm
Commonly grown in Queensland [though the name refers to Queen Victoria] this is a very sweet variety of yellow-fleshed pineapple. It is less cold tolerant than the other pineapple [ananas bracteatus] that we sell and will need to be grown in a good hothouse unless you live in a warm northern area. No frost and a good long summer, as well as free draining soil are required.

PITAYA - Red - sold out (Hylocereus undatus, Dragon Fruit) PB3 30cm

SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON. ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL GO IN THE QUEUE FOR DELIVERY NEXT SEASON [OCT 2017 - MARCH 2018]

Also known as dragon fruit and strawberry pear, this unusual fruit probably originates from Southern Mexico. It grows on a branching cactus with fleshy stems reaching from a few centimetres to 6m long in mature plants, which will put out aerial roots, and which require support. The fruit is the size of an apple, brilliant red in colour, with a texture similar to a melon, and is pleasantly sweet in flavour. Even if it didn’t taste as good as it does, it would be worth growing for the colour it can add to a fruit salad, and for the unusual way it grows. The flowers are ornate and beautiful, but bloom at night and only last for one night. Best grown under cover. You will need two plants for pollination. Either one of each colour, or you can have two red as I now have red from two different sources.

PITAYA - Yellow - sold out (Hylocereus undatus) PB3 30cm

SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON. ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL GO IN THE QUEUE FOR DELIVERY NEXT SEASON [OCT 2017 - MARCH 2018]

Like the red pitaya,requiring the same conditions, but the fruit is yellow-fleshed, and reportedly more highly prized than the red fruit, though the one I tasted was less tasty. It is milder and creamier in texture. You will need two plants for pollination, and it is best to take one of each colour, to ensure you are getting genetic diversity as they have been propagated from cuttings.

POMEGRANATE - Seed grown (Punica granatum) PB5 60cm
The pomegranate is an orange-sized fruit with a thickish skin that opens to reveal chambers of brilliant red seeds surrounded by a sac of delicious juicy pulp. Originally from China, they have long been prized in the Mediterranean. Not only do they taste and look great, but the shrub with its small orange flowers and bushy habit is very attractive. The shrub will grow to about 3m, and will grow in most soils and tolerate a temperature range from -5C [when dormant] to any heat we have in NZ. Too much cold will affect the fruit quality though, and a long hot summer is required to set fruit at all. Train the bush to a single trunk, and prune in winter. Fruit ripens late autumn.

Grown from seed from an excellent fruiting plant.
