Very impressed with the cherry trees recieved in perfect condition.planted as per instructions.I would like advice, as now I have got them I am told I will never have cherries as the birds always get there first.As the trees max height is 8ft is there some way I can protect them and when is it the beast time to offer this protection. I would be grateful for your advice. Webmasters Reply: Here on the nursery we have found hanging old cd's in the tree the most effective method of control; these must be in place from approximately mid March until after the fruit has been harvested.

Supplied as a packet of 5 seeds.This Product is Available Now.
An interesting cross between a cucumber and a melon producing striped cucumber-like fruit up to 12" (30 cm) in length but slightly fatter - though we think these are best harvested and eaten when around 6" - 8" (15 - 20 cm) long.
This is more cucumber than melon - but has a distinctly different melony flavour and the skin is more firm just like a melon. Very fast to mature.
Definitely something to try!
Primarily for growing under protection it will also fair well in a sheltered spot outside.
Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.
