If that blob is a fruit it looks much smaller than mine, which is the size of a damson. I'll take a pic tomorrow. The leaves aren't right either.

I grow Issai ( though mine is small, it isn't smoothskinned, being more like a normal large kiwi.)

They take a while to ripen, I pick them in November at the time the leaves are falling, and start ...

We've had a bad year with the Japanese and cross-species plums, only two have survived ( canker has been rife, and has also taken out a Mesch Mesch apricot, half a large peach tree, Gypsy plum). The c ...

Bella has a glorious arrogance and takes heed of no-one's approval or otherwise.

A good frame, strong muscles, a heart-warming colour and a joyous mentality, her pedigree lists good dogs I've kno ...
