Fruit Trees

Chilcotin Raspberry 💓

 The Chilcotin Raspberry is a summer fruiting variety that produces heavy crops of good quality fruit. Sturdy, almost thornless canes carry sweet fruit in mid-summer. They are a mid season variety. This variety has good disease resistance. They fruit on the floricanes, which are the previous years growth. Prune out each cane as it finishes fruiting and tie up the new seasons growth (primocanes) to fruit the next year. Chilcotin Primocanes may produce a small autumn crop on their tips, and the tips should be pruned after harvest #daleyfruit #daleysnursery #raspberry #chilcotinraspberry #backyardgarden







Asparagus

 The Asparagus is an attractive, fern-like perennial that can produce fresh tasty spears for over 20 years if the beds are well-maintained. Asparagus prefers sandy soils, but with the right preparation it will perform very well in heavier clays. Asparagus is a valuable investment in the long term vegetable garden. The plants are either male or female. Both male and female plants produce delicious spears, the male spears being slightly thicker, the females producing seed heads which can be pruned to encourage growth #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #asparagus #backyardgarden







Edible Pandanus 🌿

 The Edible Pandanus is widely cultivated for use in Asian cooking and basket making. It has a nutty fragrance and is most commonly used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food. Also useful in flower arrangements. A low growing plant to 1m with long narrow blade-like leaves and woody aerial roots. In tropical climates it can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, and used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping. If you live outside of the tropics, it is well worth trying as an indoor plant in winter with a warm, sunny aspect. Allow the plant to dry out over the winter months. #daleysfruit #daleysnursery #pandanus #ediblepandanus
