They ramble up trees or fences and last for years – they’re fairly hardy and will take light frosts, excellent up the babaco, cherimoya or banana trunks etc in the subtropical orchard.

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