St Mary Redcliffe Fruit Garden

St Mary Redcliffe Fruit Garden

All of the trees and shrubs in this garden were chosen by the parish commitee at St Mary Redcliffe, and we were very pleased that they went for the trees that we suggested as they are rarely found in the urban landscape and so will offer harvests that we do not see often in the city. As you will see when you visit the garden, we have bought substantially sized trees so that there will be fruit in the next couple of years and one of the trees had fruitlets on it when planted.

The trees are:

  • Medlar
  • Quince Vranja

The soft fruit is:

  • 3 Blackcurrants
  • 3 Gooseberries
  • 2 Redcurrants
  • 1 Whitecurrant

There will be limited fruit production this year but next year everything in the garden will fruit, with the soft fruit beginning in late June and July, the Quince in late September to October and the Medlar in October and November.
