The new Fuchsiaberry is from the company's own breeding programme, promising "large sweet fruits packed with vitamin C and nutrients". The fruit's flavour is "somewhere between a fig and a kiwi".
Thompson & Morgan suggests the plants could be added to allotment gardens, with each plant producing up to 300 berries. Plants are partially self-fertile but offer heavier crops with a pollination companion.
Unlike other fuchsia varieties the company says it will keep flowering when producing fruit, up to the first frost. Plants grow 90cm high x 45 cm wide and cost £9.99 for five plugs.
