The term "fruit" has many different meanings depending on the context. In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary together with the seedsof a flowering plant. In cooking, when food items are called "fruit", the term is usually used for those plant fruits that are edible, sweet and fleshy.

Below are some examples of fruits in the garden.

Chojuro Asian Pear Pyrus 'Chojuro'


Sacred Datura Datura wrightii


Apache Plume Fallugia paradoxa


Dyer's Greenweed Genista tinctoria


Sweet Pea Lathyrus odoratus


Oregon Grape Mahonia repens


Devil's Claw Proboscidea parviflora


Golden Currant Ribes aureum


Woods' Rose Rosa woodsii


As the summer progresses, you will be able to see more fruit through the garden. So keep your eyes open.
