Currently, the Edible Garden is supporting The CafĂ© at Linton’s in the Garden by providing fresh winter crops such as cabbage & swiss chard that have appeared in salads and paired with delicious local meats.

One exciting plant added to the Edible Garden includes Musa ‘Super Dwarf Cavendish’ a strain of the cavendish banana that is stated to produce fruit at a manageable height of just 3’ or less often after one year. Another exciting addition is a pink blueberry... yes, you read that right! Vaccinium ‘Pink Lemonade’ is a mid to late season blueberry that has bright, showy pink fruit with a mild flavor. The fruit turns deep pink when ripe. This plant provides four seasons of interest, with leaves putting on a display of color in the fall, and winter twigs that turn a reddish-brown. 

With such diverse additions to the Edible Garden the overall look will be a feast for the stomach and for the eyes!
