I have an esteemed plum tree that I should be finishing picking in right now, or at least when the rain stops. It's called Anna Spath and the fruit has a really rich flavour, think prune brandy. In fa ...

I grow Issai ( though mine is small, it isn't smoothskinned, being more like a normal large kiwi.)
