Carica pubescens syn. Vasconcellea pubescens

Quick growing small tree with large tropical-looking leaves but hardy to about -3 degrees. Grows straight up and is perfect for small gardens. Sometimes flowers in first year and will eventually produce approx 50 10-15cm long fruit per season. The fruit is yellow when ripe and will fill your garden with a delicious fruity aroma. It contains an enzyme which breaks down tissues in meat, so it can be used as a tenderiser. It can also be eaten unripe as a vegetable but will contain fewer vitamins and minerals. Two or more plants are needed for good pollination. Height to 4m. PB8.
