Globe Artichoke - Green Globe improved variety - 'Imperial Star' UT
Cynara scolymus
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
'Imperial Star' is an improved variety adapted to a wider climate range than other artichokes, it crops well in the first year. The large flower buds are deep green faintly tinged with purple with solid hearts, between 7.5 and 12.5 cm wide. Globe artichoke is an herbaceous perennial to 1.5 m high, suitable for temperate, Mediterranean climates. The edible flower buds are a delicacy, pick them before they start to open. The striking grey-green foliage and spectacular flowers add beauty to the garden. Globe artichoke has a restricted climatic range and prefers cool, moist summers and mild winters. Chilling is needed to produce buds. A deep, rich, well-drained, alkaline soil is required; artichokes will grow in a pH range of 6.5 - 7.5. Growing in humid, subtropical and tropical areas is very difficult, even if the plants grow well, insufficient chilling will make bud production unlikely or of very poor quality. If you live in a warmer area and artichokes are on your 'most desired' list then try the 'Imperial Star' variety as they begin cropping early. Enthusiasts in warmer areas dig the roots and put them in the fridge during the summer for planting in the autumn. Excellent drainage is required and raised beds will help.

Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
This is really a 'must have' small, shrubby tree if you live from a warm temperate area to the tropics. It is very attractive with glossy leaves and starry white flowers and produces fruit similar to a cherry in size and appearance. It doesn't have the dark, rich flavour of a cherry but is still very enjoyable. It will tolerate down to minus temperatures and has the added advantage of being resistant to fruit fly.

It doesn't like drought and requires consistent watering, it will also tolerate partial shade. Unfortunately birds are keen on the fruit too, so prune it regularly to keep it bushy so a bird net can be thrown over it.

Horseradish UT
Amoracia rusticana
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA

It can become weedy if disturbed as new plants will grow from the broken roots. More info on growing horseradish

Kiwiberry 'Issai' UT
Actinidia arguta 'Issai'

It prefers a position in full sun but will tolerate partial shade with protection from strong winds. The soil should be well-drained, fertile with a pH of 5.5 - 7.0.
