Celtis australis                   In stock

A European relative of the American Sugarberry it is a charming delicate tree with slender nettle-like foliage, not as hardy as its cousin from the USA and unlikely to get so big.  Even so it should be fine in all but the coldest parts of the UK.  It likes plenty of sun, loamy soil and will probably fruit better with some shelter from strong winds.

Said by some to be the food of the legendary 'Lotus eaters' of antiquity, the fruit is about 12mm,  reddish/brown and very sweet.
