GOLDEN FRUIT OF THE ANDES (NARANJILLA)

GOLDEN FRUIT OF THE ANDES (NARANJILLA)

Solanum quitoense
Member $12.95
A rare self-pollinating subtropical fruit prized for its exquisite seasonal fruit and stunning tropical looking leaves. The furry spheres of orange fruit yield a juice that is a combination of both pineapple and lemon. If this wasn’t reason enough, the huge furry leaves tinged with purple are outstanding in the landscape. A short lived perennial, it will exhaust itself in three years but can be propagated from seed to keep the supply coming! Prefers warm wet summers, so water regularly during these months.
