In a Nutshell:
* An easily grown plant, it succeeds in most fertile soils, preferring a moisture retentive well-drained loamy soil. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Prefers a sunny position but succeeds in partial shade though it fruits less well in such a situation.
* A very ornamental plant, the fruit is a good wildlife food source, especially for birds.
* The fruit can be eaten raw or cooked. About 15mm in diameter. The fruit is abundantly produced and hangs on the tree well into winter. The flavour improves when the fruit has been frosted, so it is best to delay harvesting as long as possible. more...
