Apple trees are one of the few trees that have been grown throughout the world. With many varieties developed to grow in certain temperature locations. We grow a broad range of the old traditional varieties as well as some of the modern ones.
Asian Pear (Pyrus pyrifolia)
Asian pears are surprisingly easy to grow, no more difficult to grow than a European pear.
They produce mouth watering fruits of a very delicate flavour and are very crunchy.
Yes you can grow some of the tastiest cherries here in the UK, but you have to be quick if you want to beat the birds. You really need to net the trees, or grow a white/yellow variety.
Dwarfing rootstocks now make cherry picking a lot easier.
With many varieties developed to grow in certain temperature locations. We grow a broad range of the old traditional varieties as well as some of the modern ones. Also with the dessert varieties we do offer the tart cooking cherries.
Fig (Ficus carica)
There are about 850 varieties worldwide Some are dessert/hot climate varieties and some can produce 2 crops in one. Some are good for eating as they can be very sweet, and some are good for drying and canning. Some can also withstand very cold winter temperatures down to -15 deg C the tops may die off but they reshoot from the base.
For production its is normal to confine there roots, to make the tree grow less tall and also maximize production
There are two fruiting types, those that only have 1 crop per year sometimes known as UNIFERES, and those that can produce 2 crops sometimes known as BIFERES. Obviously in the UK outdoor climates single crops are best, but if given protection 2 crop types can be grown. The first crop is known as the 'first or breva' crop, whilst the second crop is known as the 'main' crop.
Grapes (Vitis vinifera)
Grapes are easy to grow, as long the variety is compatible with the local environment. Be it indoors are outdoors, red, white or black, seed or seedless.
The art to successful grape growing is as again with all other fruit, variety, temperature, nutrients, water, air flow and pruning regime.
You have to be ruthless in thinning out the grape bunches. I know it seems harsh, all of those small bunches of grapes growing well. But in the long term its for the better.
All of our varieties are grown outside, on a cordon system, protection must be given against the birds.
Green Gage (Prunus domestica)
Is an edible drupaceous fruit, a cultivar of the plum. It was developed in Moissac, France from a green-fruited wild plum (Ganerik) originally found in Asia Minor. It is identified by its small, oval shape, smooth-textured flesh, and ranging in colour from green to yellow, grown in temperate areas.
They are known for their rich, confectionery flavour that causes them to be considered one of the finest dessert plums.
Kiwi (Actinidia deliciosa)
Kiwifruit (commonly shortened to kiwi in North America) or Chinese gooseberry is the edible berry of several species of woody vines in the genus Actinidia.
The fruit became popular with British and American servicemen stationed in New Zealand during World War II, and later became commonly exported, first to Great Britain and then to California in the 1960s.
There are fruit that are small and large, fuzzy or smooth skinned, green flesh or yellow, green, red or brown skinned.
Medlar (Mespilus germanica)
It is hardy to zone 6, and it flowers from May to June, and the fruits ripen in November. The flowers are pollinated by Bees. The plant is self-fertile.
Succeeds in most soils, preferring one that is moist and well-drained. Prefers a sunny position and a fertile soil. Occasionally cultivated for its edible fruit, there are some named varieties.
The fruit can be harvested in late autumn after it has been bletted, before it can be eaten raw. At this stage the flesh turns from white to brown, becomes very soft and is quite sweet that somewhat resembles a date. The fruit of the wild species is up to 25mm in diameter, though some cultivars can be 65mm in diameter.
Pear (Pyrus communis)
It is hardy to zone 4, and it is in flower from Apr to May. The flowers are pollinated by Insects. The plant is not self-fertile.
The fruit can be eaten raw or cooked. The flavour ranges from rather harsh and astringent (cultivars used for making alcoholic drinks ie Perry) through to soft, sweet and very juicy. The best dessert fruits have an exquisite sweet flavour, usually with a very soft flesh, whilst cooking varieties have harder less sweet flesh.
Prefers a good well-drained loam in full sun. Grows well in heavy clay soils. There are many named varieties that can provide fruit from late July to April or May of the following year.
There are 3 main species grown for fruit, Diospyros kaki - Persimmon, Diospyros lotus - Date Plum and Diospyros virginiana - American Persimmon
In general the fruit can be eaten raw or cooked. When fully ripe the fruit has an exquisitely rich flavour something like apricot and mango, with 25% sugars. The fruit can range from 1.5cm diameter to about 7.5cm in diameter.
Prefers a good deep loamy soil in sun or light shade but succeeds in most soils. Dislikes very acid or wet and poorly drained soils. Requires a sheltered position. Dormant plants are quite hardy in Britain. A warm sunny location improves the chance of producing ripe fruit. Fruits are frequently produced outdoors at Kew. The young trees require some winter protection for their first winter or two.
Plum (Prunus domestica)
It is hardy to zone 5. It is in flower in April, and the fruits ripen from Jul to November. The flowers are pollinated by Insects.The plant is self-fertile.
The fruit can be eaten raw or cooked, but varies considerably from cultivar to cultivar, with many soft and juicy with a delicious flavour ranging from very sweet to acid. The more acid fruits are usually only used for cooking purposes.
Requires a well-drained moisture retentive soil and a sheltered position.
Quince (Cydonia Oblonga)
It is hardy to zone 4. It flowers in May, and the fruits ripen in November. The flowers are pollinated by Insects.
When grown in warm climates the fruit can become soft and juicy and is suitable for eating raw. In cooler climates such as Britain, however, it remains hard and astringent and needs to be cooked before being eaten. It is used in jellies, preserves etc. The cooked fruit adds a delicious flavour to cooked apples. The fruit is rich in pectin.
Succeeds in most soils but prefers a light moist fertile soil and a sunny position. Dislikes very dry or waterlogged soils. The quince has been cultivated for over two thousand years for its edible fruit and its seed, though it is not a widely grown crop.
