• Description: Hardy deciduous self pollinating tree that reaches up to 10m high.
  • Habitat: Prefers full sun but will tolerate partial shade. Requires regular watering and well-draining soils that are fertile and loamy. Cold hardy.
  • Edibility: Blooms in late spring, and produces edible ‘fruit’ in late summer. The ‘fruit’ can be eaten fresh, or dried, and can also be used in teas.
  • Fun Fact: This tree is originally from China, Japan, and the Himalayas. The ‘fruit’ is actually swollen stalks.
