Prunus salicina Burbank (Burbank Japanese Plum), This is such a great producer, and better yet, the fruit is wonderful. These are a mid sized to large plum. When ripe it is a reddish purple colour and very attractive. This guy is just out side my back door and gives wonderful shade as well in the afternoon. The tree is very beautiful also
Pyrus communis Bartlett (The Bartlett Pear, Williams or the European Pear), all are correct. Here in Canada it is referred to in all ways, but in the USA it is referred to as the Bartlett or Williams. This is a great eating pear, I like to think that this is the pear that all us kids drew in school way back when!!!
Pyrus communis Bosc (Bosc or Kaiser Pear). these are the best tasting of all pears. When ripe it is not attractive, but what the heck the taste is perfection. The tree for this type can get rather large so one needs to take that in consideration when planting in a small garden.
Fragaria Vesca, ( North American straw-berry variety). These are native to the Niagara Region, lucky us!!!! There is nothing like them for flavour any where. It does take so many to get a snack from them as they are very small. What I do is add domestic straw-berries to them and just enjoy.
A number of years ago one of my Aunts came for a visit from Saskatchewan (a western Province). I had no fruit trees at that time. She was dismayed at me. She likened it to going to Saskatchewan and not seeing a wheat field. So I went out and bought the three trees featured here right away!!!
So just for fun what is your favourite fruit that you can grow in your Garden?
