Unusual Fruit

Decaisnea fargesii
 (Dead Man's Fingers)

In the Fellow's Garden there is an unusual sight hanging from a multi stemmed shrub. These blue bean pods, rather ugly looking fruit, belong to the Decaisnea fargesii, commonly known as 'Dead Man's Fingers'.

Cyphomandra corymbiflora
 (Hardy Tree Tomato)

In the front quad, up on the top terrace, the Cyphomandra corymbiflora, Hardy Tree Tomato, mentioned in blog entry 29th June 2012  'Tomatoes And Pineapples' has produced its rather unusual looking tomatoes.

Cornus kousa var. chinensis
 (The Chinese Dogwood)

A third unusual fruit can be found at the end of the Ruskin Lane border. Cornus kousa var. chinensis, The Chinese Dogwood, has produced lots of 2-3cm strawberry like fruit.
