Tasty and unusual fruit

Very good point artjak - don't know why there aren't more greengages about. Even the supermarket ones i bought tasted good and the trees i've seen have loads on them

cape gooseberries, cucamelons all sound intriguing - might try and see if there's any space for them next year

this year probably going caseille ( i guess it's a similar thing to josta and worcesterberries) . And the chilean guava - hear it smells lovely too. And either blueberries or bilberry

has anyone tried growing bilberry ? ??i know they need ericaceous soil like blueberry. Some people say bilberry's easy and others say they need a bit of TLC

is the uk warm enough to get fruit from persimmon and passionfruit - ??my garden's nice and sunny but i don't have a greenhouse.

Already ordered some whiteberries - the write-ups sounded good but not sure if that's just well written marketing

Hi, Am after suggestions for fruit that'll taste great and possibly some unusual fruit that'll work in a cool temperate climate. I'm feeling inspired - Just read diacono's taste of the unexpected and Jane grigson's fruit book. Have got alpine strawberry, rhubarb, honey berry, blackberry, red and purple raspberry, red gooseberry, Mirabelle, cherry. None have fruited yet. Am lusting after a mulberry but haven't got the space for another tree. Growing a locquat from seed but have heard that in may not produce fruit. Also fear that it may grow too big. London gardens and all that. Any suggestions for fruit plants gatefully received And for books, websites etc. too Cheers, Gav
