• Quince, this one has a nice pink blossom even if it doesn’t fruit
• Plums, these are still seedlings. Sometimes pips and stones grow more vigorously and healthily than pampered, grafted varieties, and this is true for all stone fruit.
• Hazelnuts, now producing plenty of nuts after 20 years of waiting.
• Peaches, these fruit every third year, only if it doesn’t rain in September, older trees lose vigour after 15 years so you have to replant peach trees.
• Loquat trees ( Eriobotrya japonica) look great and produce delicious fruit even in quite cold areas. Their timber is an awesome pink hardwood too.
• Tamarillo and strawberry guava, have filled boxes of succulent fruit for us in their day, but they need a tunnel house, irrigation, and replacing when they burn out after 10 years as they are tropical fruit like tomatoes and need the same degree of care, feeding, and attention.
• Olives, Manzanillo, Koroneiki have both produced edible fruit to amaze the visitors! I pickle olives every third year or so in brine, getting about one small jar.
