An improved version of
the American classic! Unlike wild huckleberries the very dark
purple berries can be eaten fresh as well as cooked. Impressively
heavy yields from container-sized plants. The taste has a hint of
liquorice. Very easy to grow – treat them like chilli plants. Just
75 days to harvest.

Lost Fruit of the Incas
- this beautiful plant is worth growing for its large, velvety,
purple veined foliage alone. The fruit is bright orange, about the
size of a large cherry tomato and is covered in small hairs that
rub off when ripe. The pulp is green, tastes like a lemony
pineapple and is considered a delicacy in South America. Produces
fruit in its first year in good conditions, harvest autumn/winter.
Good in containers. Will survive light frosts. Some plants produce
spikes along the ribs.

The plant is a
herbaceous shrub up to 2m high, with downy stems, densely
white-hairy twigs, and ovate leaves. The fruit may be round,
oblong or conical-oval, with bluntly rounded apex; 2-10 cm long,
and up to 6 cm wide at the base. The thin, tough skin is coated
with a slightly prickly, peach-like fuzz until the fruit is fully
ripe, then it is smooth, deep purple-red, and has a bitter taste.
