Tomatillo - 73RT72

Tomatillo - 73RT72

Details  Produces a green stalked and leafed plant around a meter tall eventually covered with an abundance of green tomato-like fruit covered in a green papery husk.  Pick when husk is filled out.  Can be eaten raw, once the poisonous husk is removed, either as a fruit in hand or blended in a food processor with coriander and a few other ingredients to make a light and refreshing tasting salsa verde.  Or roasted in the oven, and then  blended and boiled until it thickens (with stock, and other ingredients) and used as a tart but flavourful sauce for meats like chicken.  When tomatoes are blighted, the tomatillos will look fine.  Plants will fall over under the weight of fruit and are best grown surrounded by a low method of support if you prefer they don't lay on your paths or lawn.

Meadowfoam  - 71RT47

Meadowfoam - 71RT47

Details  A feathery green plant 20-40cm tall that flowers in the spring producing a mass of white-yellow flowers somewhat resembling poached eggs, resulting in the plant being called the poached egg plant.  The bees love it, and it vigourously self-seeds, spreading out to fill a garden bed.  Will die off in the summer, and then the dropped seeds will sprout around autumn producing the feathery green plants, and they'll cover the ground over the winter producing flowers again in the spring.

Gooseberry - Farmers Glory - 59RT33

Gooseberry - Farmers Glory - 59RT33

Details  This Gooseberry grows oval green shaped fruit 3-5 cm tall, 2-4 cm wide. If ripened in direct sun, they gain a level of reddish blush and develop a strong ripe flavour indicative of the sun ripening.  If ripened out of the sun, perhaps sheltered by surrounding unmown grass can retain the green colour, and a less overpowering flavour that has a purer gooseberry experience.  These seeds are saved from WHATEVER VARIETY and can be germinated into individual plants without the need to order in lots of potentially expensive grafted individual plants.  These seeds are promiscuously crossed with whatever the pollinating insects bring them, and while they will likely produce a standard gooseberry, there is a chance you'll end up with something unique.
