Our Feedback
Late July and I decided to replace a couple of plants in my flowerbed that are not earning their keep. I decided I want Fuchsias. I did a bit of research, decided on the variety I wanted and then tried to find some. Victoriana came up trumps and had the variety I was looking for, and offered reasonably priced mail order too. I was delighted when I received my plants. They are sturdy and bushy. They've been pinched back so there are lots of shoots. They were well packed and clearly were posted to avoid being in the post over the weekend in what was a very hot spell in July / August 2020. Arrived still moist and in fabulous condition. I am delighted with them. A teensy bit potbound, as to be expected at this time of year, but the lovely root system means I'm sure they'll get their roots out and grow on in no time. 100% satisfied customer; I would happily recommend Victoriana Nurseries to anyone wanting to buy a Fuchsia. These are the experts. Thank you!

Tree Tomatoes

The Tree Tomato - or tomato tree, or Tamarillo as it is also known - is not a tomato at all, but its egg-shaped red fruits are reminiscent of the tomatoes that we know and love. Tamarilloes are generally used in sweet dishes - although they can just as easily be used in savoury dishes too.

These perennial plants grow at a staggering rate and will fruit each autumn, through to winter, picking up where the tomato growing season ends. More...

Despite their common name, tree 'tomatoes' are not actually tomatoes at all! Perhaps the egg-shaped red fruits of this perennial plant are responsible for this misleading name often given to Solanum betaceum,- also known as a Tamarillo.

Tamarillos are native to the southern hemisphere, particularly New Zealand, where they are enjoyed more in sweet dishes than savoury. The tamarillo is perfect for use in jams, jellies, chutneys, stews, puddings or just simply eaten raw. As a member of the Solanum family, the tamarillo plant will produce pretty clusters of flowers similar to those on the potato plant, which will eventually self-pollinate and fruit.

Tamarillo plants will grow into woody 'tomato trees' at quite a staggering rate, with the perennial plants producing a good crop of fruits from autumn and well into winter - picking up where the 'true' tomato season ends. If you're keen to grow your own tamarillos, bear in mind that the vigorous growth of these plants mean that if not kept in check, the trees can reach up to 12 feet tall, with a spread of 8 feet! However, the good news is that they can be easily kept pruned down to a much more manageable height of around 6 feet.
