Bababerry Raspberry (and some other plants)
« on: July 20, 2017, 08:51:55 PM »
Finally, a raspberry that can survive in Southern California


Bababerry raspberry is suspected to actually be a hybrid between regular raspberry and the wild California Smoothleaf raspberry. Normally raspberries don't grow too well in the hot dry climate of Southern California (although blackberries do just fine). It's in a spot that gets shaded in the afternoon.

Behind the raspberry you can see a 'Karp's Sweet' quince tree and a Mauritius lychee tree in the background.

Bababerry also does well in South Florida.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Pomegranate with rare Passe Crassane Pear (actually a quince-pear hybrid) in the background



That's a Pisang Ceylon you see in the background, a less common but very worthy variety



A Yoshino sakura can grow in climate zone 10, apparently, but only if grown own-root
Some things you don't find out unless you try



May not look like much but this is actually Western Maidenhair Fern. These things are notoriously hard to transplant. It's said that the Western variety (as opposed to the Northern Maidenhair which is nearly identical) is a bit better adapted at being able to handle the dry summers of the West coast, even though both these Maidenhairs are very vulnerable to drying out and grow best near waterfalls, or sloped hills that only get morning sun. Beautiful shape, and the Western variety is virtually impossible to find in nurseries outside the Pacific Northwest.





Here's the lychee and Karp's Sweet again



Oregold



Pomelo and Sweetheart lychee



Some fragrant flowers, Madagascar Jasmine
