Further to the Plant List I have made a list of those species that do really well in our climate. No surprises to find that they largely favour a Mediterranean climate.
Olives, Cumquats, Loquats, Macadamia, Chestnuts, Avocadoes, Apples, Tamarillo, Apples, Plums, Apricots, Pomegranate, Figs, Mulberry, Lemons, Oranges, Mandarins, Grapefruit, Quince.
And also in amongst this are Passionfruit, Choko, Grapes, Bananas, Cherimoya, Roseapple, Sweet Potato, Babaco. I also plan an abundance of acacia and tagasaste plantings in between which will provide leave fall, nitrogen and eventually mulch.
Mrs PP picked our first real harvest of olives yesterday from a single tree. Enough to make a decent sized jar. Another friend that we are keen to get into the ground.
