Exotic fruit to grow in greenhouse?

Hi There

I am about to obtain a greenhouse

Any recommendations for growing exotic fruit in a greenhouse.

The fruit will have to be grown in pots

Thanks,

Daniel

    Could you define what you mean by exotic?

    I SEE, BY LOOKING BACK AT YOUR EARLIER POSTS, THAT YOU ARE IN THE SOUTH OF UK.

    I AM IN THE BLEAKER REGION OF THE PEAK DISTRICT, SO WHAT SEEMS EXOTIC AND IN NEED OF PROTECTION FROM A GREENHOUSE TO ME MAY GROW WELL OUTDOORS FOR YOU.

    I GROW A PEACH TREE UNDER GLASS FOR MOST OF THE YEAR, WHEELING IT OUTSIDE ON THE FEW OCCASIONS THAT THE SUN SHINES, AND IT DOES VERY WELL.

    I IMAGINE THAT YOU COULD GROW A PEACH OUTSIDE THOUGH.

    IN THE OLD DAYS, PINEAPPLES USED TO BE GROWN BY BIG HOUSES' GARDENERS.

    They used to grow pineapples in a cold frame with a brick wall behind, this had certain bricks removed and another container running along the back in which they filled with horse muck so the heat came through the bricks and heated the cold frame.  I don't suppose anyone would bother now as you can buy a big pineapple for £1.00 not worth the pong in the garden.?

  • If you obtain a tropical greenhouse, then growing Snake fruits can be a lucrative business.

    Snake fruit plants grow to seven metres high, it says.

    What kind of greenhouse do you have?

    Passion fruit worked well for me in an unheated GH in the SW UK.
