|Cyphomandra corymbiflora (Hardy Tree Tomato)|
On the top terrace two unusual plants can be found, both in flower at the moment.
Cyphomandra corymbiflora (Hardy Tree Tomato) has large soft leaves with blue/purple flowers that hang in clusters. A member of the Solanaceae family, tomatoes and potatoes, it produces edible fruits that look like tomatoes.
Acca sellowiana (Pineapple Guava), previously known as Feijoa sellowiana, is a rather exotic looking evergreen shrub. The unusual flowers are purple, tinged white, with long, red stamens amongst grey-green leaves, producing edible fruit.
