Requesting a close-up of the first, for the benefit of others.
I recognize the last picture as wine berries (but perhaps you call them something else?). The first two look sort of familiar, but I have no idea what they are. Please enlighten me! :-)
Wild guesses:-LycheeWhite SapoteFijoaYou have some bloody weird fruits in NZ and I think I would need a degree in subtropical botany to score top marks!
Tom, Are they not clickable? (I'm using Firefox now, if that makes any difference...) Please would you try and feed me back.PI - oh is that what they are called? Thanks! We never knew. They are European imports, I'm sure. I thought they were dewberries. YP, nice guesses. However none are tropical, sub- or otherwise.
The top fruit is from the tree Cornus Capitata, or Himalayan Strawberry. The fruit are flavourless or slightly bitter, but the wax-eyes and Tuis love them, and they will fight over them.Lychee was a really good guess YP.Second one is the fruit of the Japonica.And the third is a bit like a raspberry. But the leaves are soft and the fruit a round rather than oval shape.
Yes, the third one is a picture of wineberries, one of my favorite berries. I absolutely love them - much better than rasberries. A bit difficult to gather, but worth the effort. Full of healthy goodness, too. Enjoy!
