Fruit Trees

The exotic Madrono fruit

 The Madrono is a very attractive slow growing tree, with dark green leathery leaves. Native to wet forests of Central America, the Madrono has oval shaped fruits that are produced in summer reaching up to 5cm. The white pulp has a pleasant slightly sour aromatic flavour, but can be quite acid if harvested prematurely.

The tree is very ornamental, making an excellent potted display plant. While the tree may not produce fruit in colder regions, the leaves are quite cold hardy and can tolerate winter conditions. May require protection from frosts when young. The tree is hardy to most soil conditions and is not nutrient demanding #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #madrono #ornamentalplant
