What is the most unusual fruit/vegetable you have ever grown?
Hi, I've grown cape gooseberry,plant in full sun,but needs a long hot summer and lots of water.

New Zealand yam, lemon eucalyptus, ginger, lemon grass, sweet potato, pineapple, this year im growing turmeric and taro, if I can get a tuber sorted.
Dragon fruit are good fun and easy from seed,especially if you don't know what type of plant they come from,not hardy so you will not get fruit,easy to get one from a super market to try
I plan on growing asparagus peas this year, never seen those before!
Last year was my first year of having a garden, and thus my first year gardening. Only grew potatoes and tomatoes! As well as some chillies that grew really well but couldn't eat due to their extreme heat - I have a sensitive palette

Asparagus peas are pretty but a complete waste of time as a crop. You have to eat them when they're really tiny or they're like cardboard and the yield is low.
Try proper peas first or maybe mangetouts or sugar snaps.
Wonderful shapes, sizes, textures and colours, but useless
Decorative if you like that sort of thing. Seen at a garden near Verteuil in the Charente.
That works - a case of right gourd right place
Thry proved most educational.
I grew water melon called sugar baby last year. It's much smaller than a baby, actually only the size of a small fist:)
