Easy to grow, tasty and unusual little fruits

Can be grown in: Pots and containers, grow bags, raised beds. They will need some support as the vines can grow to 1.2-1.5m in height.

In the kitchen: These taste wonderful in a salad with cherry tomatoes, can be stir-fried, pickled, eaten as a fruit or even popped on a cocktail stick in your martini!

Can be delivered from: late April to July.
