Our Fruit

THIS YEARS CROPS

We are growing pomegranates, figs, blackberries and jujubes.
If you would like to drop by and pick some fruit to take home you are welcome, or else ask for them at your local greengrocer or supermarket.

Blackberries
Spring – Summer

In our family, nothing said ‘grandma’ like a blackberry and apple pie in the oven! Rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, blackberries are packed with nutrition and are delicious eaten raw, added to tarts and other desserts, or made into preserves.

Figs
Summer – Autumn

An ancient fruit with an illustrious history, figs are said to have been enjoyed by Cleopatra and Ulysses, as well as being mentioned in the bible as Adam and Eve’s ‘cover’ of choice! As one of the sweetest, juiciest and most fragrant fruits of summer, figs can be enjoyed fresh, as well as making a great addition to both sweet and savoury dishes.

Pomegranates
Summer – Autumn

Pomegranates are a beautiful fruit with shiny ‘jewels’ called arils inside.  They are commonly enjoyed as fresh whole arils, as sweet and crunchy additions to salads, or juiced.  The healing powers of pomegranates have been championed for centuries – and even though every second fruit is hailed as a ‘super fruit’ these days – the evidence stacks up pretty high in favour of the pomegranate and it’s amazing health benefits!

Jujubes
Autumn

Delicious, Ancient, Nutritious. Jujubes, also known as red date, Chinese date or tsao, have been commonly used as a traditional Chinese medicine and food for thousands of years. They are delicious eaten raw (crunchy like an apple) or dried (sweet and chewy).
