Thanks @Yollymac the nurseries said they were popular, so much so that I couldn’t get the astringent type I wanted and settled for this non-astringent Fuyu variety. I’ve always liked eating them once they go all soft & saggy but many grow them for the autumn foliage 🙂 have plonked it where the Hills Hoist used to be.
I love the fruit @Yollymac - the squishy sort, not the crunchy kaki! That’s what the (non)astringent business is about—the astringent isn’t edible until it goes v soft. Although I’ve ended up with non-astringent that I can eat hard, I can still wait till they soften 😋
Well keep an eye out for them in spring, they don’t tend to sell them bare rooted in winter like other fruit trees cos their roots are sensitive. Next on the list are a cherry 🍒 I’ll espalier on an ugly shed wall, and a weeping mulberry & an 🥑 🌳
