Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

"Order of 16th April not yet received (as of 2 May) - apparently not available until beginning of June. It would be helpful for you to check before asking for feedback that the order has been fulfilled - it is quite annoying for the customer otherwise!"
