Small yards package- Zone 5
Characteristics of the tree
This package includes:
Most plants will measure between 30 and 90 cm (1-3 feet) at time of purchase and are shipped bare-root (not in pots). Below is what a year’s harvest will look like with this package, with some details on each fruit:
What better to mark the start of summer than the magnificent lilac bloom? It will fill your land with its delicate perfume and also makes the most gorgeous bouquets. And did you know that its flowers are edible? They are great as a herbal tea, or used in jellies!
In July, you’ll be able to savour the first fresh fruits of the season: blackcurrants. Their unique aroma leaves no one indifferent! Many people prefer them in jam, jelly or in baked goods, but those who are connoisseurs of complex fragrances and love to have an explosion of flavour in the mouth will eat them fresh! The blackcurrant of this package was found by Eric on a certain Ms Magnan’s land, we don’t know the name of the cultivar, we only know he was sufficiently impressed by their fruit to ask her if he could make some cuttings to propagate them!
In August, the three Pathfinder raspberry canes will begin producing fruit, and continue until the first frosts. Who doesn’t love raspberries? Their versatility and delicious fresh taste make them a near-perfect fruit. They also perform very well when they are frozen, so you can continue to enjoy them all winter long!
In September it’s the turn of grapes and elderberries to be ready to harvest.
Elderberry is a native bush whose berries are extremely rich in vitamin C and antioxidants – great to boost the immune system!
Our Somerset grape will give you a nice little red seedless grape cluster that tastes just like sweets – children will love it! The vine will grow well on a fence, a pergola or any other form of support.
In October it’s the turn of the quince to be picked. If you are unfamiliar with this fruit, your taste buds are really missing something! The flavour is reminiscent of lemon, but deliciously perfumed. Their most familiar usage is in quince jelly and quince paste, but these fruits lend themselves to a range of dishes both sweet and savoury. As a bonus, they produce the most beautiful flowers in spring, and are highly ornamental. They are hardy to zone 5.
