THE VALUE OF FRUIT
Since the earliest hunter-gatherers first plucked berries from the trees and shrubs around them, humans have adored fruit. Designed by nature to be attractive and delicious so that birds, mammals or insects would eat it and so spread its seed, humans too discovered its sweet, delicious, juiciness – and, once tried, it was never forgotten. Fruit is a delight and a treat, and we have been eating and enjoying it for thousands and thousands of years. It is also incredibly good for us. Fresh fruit is not only bursting with essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants as well as fibre, but it also tastes completely different when freshly picked and warmed by the sun than it does when bought off a supermarket shelf. Nothing can compare with the fragrant sweetness of a just plucked strawberry or the tart plumpness of a home-grown cherry. Even the relatively common and humble apple becomes a whole new taste experience when you try your first, delectable harvest.
There are two main types of lime: acid and sweet. All are pretty, compact, self-fertile plants that grow well in pots and have fragrant blossom. Flowers, small swelling fruit and ripe fruit often appear on the tree at the same time.
Believed to be an accidental hybrid between a sweet orange and a pomelo, the grapefruit produces some of the largest fruit in the citrus family, up to 15cm/6in in diameter. Yellow-skinned in colour, its flesh can be white, pink or red and has a taste that ranges from sweet and tart to sour and bitter. Beautiful, self-fertile trees bear glossy evergreen leaves, fragrant blossom and clusters of fruit.
Fragrant flowers, glossy evergreen leaves and distinctive, rounded, bright orange fruit are borne on these lovely, self-fertile trees. Under glass or outside in warm conditions of 10 ̊C/50 ̊F or more, they flower and fruit at the same time. Sweet oranges are usually classified into three groups-valencia, blood and naval – with the most commercial fruit belonging to the valencia group.
Figs grow very happily in pots 50-60cm/20–24in in diameter. Keeping them slightly pot-bound will increase yields, so repot only every three or four years.
Creating a box in the ground around the root ball helps contain a fig’s roots. Paving slabs sunk into a pit work well.
At the end of summer there may be a few different- sized fruit on your fig simultaneously. The largest should be almost ready to pick, and the very smallest will grow into next year’s harvest. Nip off those that are sized in between.
After leaf fall, pack around a fig with straw or dry leaves and then wrap in horticultural fleece. Remove the wrapping in late spring.
