Hilary we are still waiting for us to produced some fruit. They do well in the Paphos area not far from us, they get the sea breeze and a bit more water than ours but I am optimistic that they will do us proud one day. Thank you again for inform us and posting interesting photos.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.
