Inca Berries Seeds
Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.Very easy to grow. Delicious and ornamental. Individual berries wrapped in a Chinese lantern. The Incan delicacy that thrives on neglect, giving fresh berries right up until Christmas. Tastes like: Gooseberries, kiwi, pineapple, orange.Recognisable in patisseries or indeed many cocktails, these shiny golden berries, each wrapped in its own paper Chinese lantern, are one of the trendiest garnishes around. Also known as the Cape Gooseberry (although it originates from highland Peru), the golden berry, or simply by its genus name Physalis, these sticky amber balls have a rich flavour of ripe gooseberries with a hint of tropical fruit, followed by a pleasant bitter sweet aftertaste. Sow: February-April. Harvest: August-October.. Content 11 seeds

Nasturtium Gem Mix Seeds
Part of the James Wong Homegrown Revolution Range.Flavourful and versatile salad crop. Crisp, peppery flowers and seeds.Foolproof to grow! Tastes like: Watercress, black pepper, horseradish.Despite being possibly the most flavourful & versatile salad crop that can be grown on our blustery little island, this exotic Incan vegetable has nevertheless been unfairly relegated to the flower border for over a hundred years.Yet give it a chance in the veg patch and it will adorn your beds with an almost inexhaustible supply of peppery leaves, watercress flavoured flowers and crisp caper-like seed-pods for literally months on end. There is literally no cheaper, prettier or easier salad ingredient you can grow. Sow: March-June. Harvest: June-September.. Content 25 seeds
