default The exotic top five...

Post by chickenofthewoods on 19th February 2010, 8:03 pm

OK, slightly different question now (and thanks for the answers so far, they've been most enlightening). If you had/have the space, what five 'exotic' fruit or veg would you choose? By exotic I mean slightly unusual plants like Calloo for instance.

I've a whim try something new this year so I'm curious to see what other people choose and to hear about their experiences.

A mulberry tree is top of my list and I keep wandering round sure I'll find somewhere for it ......

Other smaller exotics I have tried include:

Red orache
Komatsuma
Tomatillos

And I am going to give okra a go this year.

Pretty much scaled back my exotics to basics, though I am growing 5 varieties of heirloom tomatoes this year, they are pretty exotic
