    Physalis has a citrusy flavour - delicious.

    What about mini pumpkins? Sarah Raven sell some (I'm sure others do too). Not overly unusual but a definate cute factor.

  • grew cucamelons last year, pretty and also pretty useless, cape gooseberries we found were a bit too tart for most people, maybe we picked them to early?

    we're already growing courgettes, jack o lantern pumpkins as well as summer squash and our site isn't that massive. So I think more pumpkins are a no go.

  • We grew Okra in our poly tunnel and it has very attractive flowers and taste much better than any shop brought.
