It always surprises me that there is relatively little fruit growing on many allotments and gardens even though soft fruit growing is very easy. Top fruit takes up a lot more space and some allotments insist that all top fruit is grown in tubs, presumably to prevent disruption to neighbours’ plots. Detailed cultivation instructions, together with suggested uses, are given for the varieties listed below. You can also use the the Navigation Bar at the top of the page together with the associated drop down lists to access all fruit.
