    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 image

    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.

    Ornamental Gourds

    Wonderful shapes, sizes, textures and colours, but useless

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    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 :)

    Chilly Willies.

    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:)
