They are under the James Wong label and he said: "The fruit can be eaten straight off the plant, or tossed with olives, slivers of pepper and a dousing of olive oil for a quirky snack with drinks - or even popped in a martini.’
Victoria Mason, Waitrose outdoor plant buyer, said: "We know that, after cooking, gardening is our customers’ favourite hobby, so we wanted to introduce something a little bit out of the ordinary that they can grow and enjoy."
"This fun fruit is easy to grow so is the perfect plant for all ages to try their hand at gardening. The new James Wong range shows you don't have to stick with the traditional when growing your own vegetables and offers some exciting new additions for our customers’ gardens."
