Fancy some fresh home-grown garden fruits in October and November?
The new Pointilla will bring colour to the garden at a drab time of year and they are tasty, too, says the Lubera nursery in Switzerland which developed them over a number of years.
The variety ‘Sweet and Sour’ (pictured) has red berries with white dots and a sweet-and-sour flavour.
‘Fortunella’ has golden berries plus “higher levels of sweetness and sourness” and can be picked from September.
Plants cost from £17.40 each, plus p&p, from www.lubera.co.uk or call (0845) 527 1658 for details on the introductions.
