Someone gave me the 'Edible Garden' catalogue recently, which I have been studiously avoiding. But now that I have a copy to browse while I drink my cup of coffee... I'm sorely tempted by the 'mangamuka greengage' plum. I looked up mangamuka on google maps, and it's another wee place right up north, so should do well here too. Greengage plums have always been something I've loved - we must have had them when we were little Mum? Edible Gardens also have worcestorberries, which I need to research more, but are descibed as a shrub. If they don't need support, then I might try a couple on the edge of my food forest.
In the meantime, we're excited about some plantings from 18months ago which are starting to bear fruit (literally!). This banana is an amazing thing to behold, especially given that all previously consumed banana's have come from south america. We can't wait to try them!
As soon as the rain stops I'm off to dig some holes. And figure out where I can put in a greengage.
