Notes

Fruit - raw or cooked[1][2][3][4]. Very sweet, juicy and palatable with a pineapple-like aroma[5][6][7][8]. Delicious when eaten out of hand, they are also used in making cakes, jams etc[8]. Unfortunately, they are often not produced very prolifically in a garden situation in Britain, probably because they prefer colder winters.

Flowers - raw. Sweet and delicious[7].

The fresh or dried leaves are used as a tea substitute[2][3][8].

Propagation

Seed - requires stratification and is best sown in early autumn in a cold frame. Stored seed requires one month stratification at about 3°c and is best sown as early as possible in the year. Prick out the seedlings when they are large enough to handle and grow on in a cold frame. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring of the following year. Division in early spring or just before leaf-fall in the autumn[10]. Larger divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions. We have found it best to pot up the smaller divisions and grow them on in a lightly shaded position in a cold frame, planting them out once they are well established in the summer.
