Description

**Perennial Edible Food Forest Package**

Permaculture is the idea that every element involved in your care of your landscape should be considered. Considering all those elements helps to improve the health of the whole ecosystem, not just your garden. Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature; of protracted and thoughtful observation rather than protracted and thoughtless labour; and of looking at plants in all their functions, rather than treating any area as a single product system.

This is a GREAT way to start your own food forest. Save money and trips to the grocery store – GROW your own food. The following plants are at the foundation of a sustainable perennial garden:  

As part the Backyard Food Forest Package , you will receive:

Two (2) Green Tree Collard Cuttings
Two (2) Longevity Spinach Cuttings 
Two (2) Rooted Okinawa Spinach Plants
One (1) Rooted Kiwi Plant (Self-Pollinating)
Ten (10) Moringa seeds

Rooting and Planting Instructions will be Included.

Green Tree Collards

Green tree collards are a delicious perennial collard green hardy to 25 F (-4 C), possibly even down to the high teens.  

They are called ‘tree’ collards because they can easily get to eight or even ten feet tall. They have a wonderful flavor and produce all year long. Most people find that tree collards taste better than regular collard greens. They are a truly spectacular plant. Not only are they notable for their flavor, they are productive, nutritious, resilient, easy to grow, and low maintenance.

Gynura Procumbens (Longevity Spinach)

You will receive one Well-Rooted Starter Plant! The plant will be between 3” to 5” in height with well-developed roots. Planting guidelines will also be included.

Longevity Spinach is a perennial low maintenance, fast growing plant. The leaves are used in salads, soups, and can be made into teas as well. Several studies have shown that longevity spinach can be used as a helpful herbal dietary supplement to promote healthy levels of blood glucose, cholesterol and blood
Prolific Kiwi

Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. The plants will be between 4” to 6” in height with well-developed roots. 

Kiwi Plant Self-Pollinating 

Prolific’ Kiwi, is a self-pollinating variety that is early ripening and produces abundant crops of medium to large, sweet and tasty fruit. The cultivar is sometimes used as a pollinator for other female cultivars. Fruits are flavorful with reddish/violet on the skin and flesh when ripe. Minimum chilling requirements; 300 hours. These Kiwi have smooth-skinned fruits so there is no need to peel the skin of the fruits unlike the fuzzy fruit species Actinidia deliciosa. Fruits vary in size and are similar to several varieties of grapes. Plant stems and fruit buds are more cold tolerant than the A. deliciosa species and are mainly grown in colder areas where the cold temperatures can range from 10ºF to -18ºF. Fruit flavors are of course different with every cultivar, similar to all fruits.

The Hardy Kiwi is THE FRUIT OF THE FUTURE! Can bear fruit the first year after planting. It produces smooth-skinned fruit the size of large grapes in late summer to early fall, great for fresh eating, salads, dessert or jelly. Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. Kiwi plants are very pretty when used to cover a wall or fence or used in landscape design. The fruit’s use in recipes is endless.

Growing Kiwi

General Characteristics: Grows on grape-like vines and needs a wall or trellis for support. Needs regular watering – weekly, or more often in extreme heat. It thrives in full sun to partial shade, and prefers good soil on the acidic side. Do not fertilize this vine too heavily; this can trigger lush foliage growth but poor flowering and fruiting. Prune it as needed in late fall or early winter, or leave it be — this Japanese cultivar is adaptable.

Moringa 

Moringa trees are cultivated all over the world and are highly valued for their edible parts that are extremely high in nutrients and minerals, as well as their beautiful ornamental features. Moringa leaves, pods and seeds have more vitamin C than four oranges combined as well as high amounts of calcium, potassium, iron, zinc and more. They’re also high in antioxidants, which is great for your overall health. Instead of running to the store for an expensive bottle of multivitamins, simply pick a few leaves for a snack filled with nourishment. 

Okinawa spinach (Gynura crepioides) 

Okinawa spinach (Gynura crepioides) is a leafy vegetable that was relatively unknown in the U.S. until recent years. It has rapidly gained in popularity as more people grow it and become familiar with its uses.

In warm climates the plant is perennial, and will provide harvests for many years. The growth habit is upright to spreading, with the longest stems tending to flop over and trail on the ground.

Overall plant height is around 1-2 feet. The plant grows rapidly and can be kept in bounds by frequent harvest of the longest stems. The colorful leaves are olive-green with a purplish-red underside and a pleasantly pungent flavor. The leaves and young stems can be eaten raw or cooked. This is an excellent salad green, or use the leaves on sandwiches in place of lettuce. Stems can be chopped in soups, stews, or vegetable medleys in the same way you would use celery. Leaves hold their color and texture well when cooked, making this a good choice for those who don’t like the mucilaginous texture of many other cooked greens.

Okinawa spinach grows well in full sun or part shade. Growth stops in cold weather, and a hard freeze will kill top growth, but in spring the plant quickly regenerates from the root system. It is recommended for USDA Zones 9-11, but can be grown as an annual or in containers in colder locations.

In spring the plants go through a flowering cycle when little leafy growth occurs, but the plant is covered in orange blooms, attracting Monarch butterflies to the nectar. This plant is in the same genus as Longevity spinach (Gynura procumbens) and the houseplant known as Purple Passion (Gynura aurantiaca), and the flowers are clearly similar.

Golden Berry(Cape Gooseberry)

Golden berry (Physalis peruviana) it not a true berry. It’s in the tomato family, and closely related to the ground tomato known as tomatillo. Tomatoes are nightshades, a large group of plants that also includes potatoes, eggplants, and golden berries. Called “aguaymanto” in Peru, golden berries look like small yellow tomatoes. Now golden berries are making their way in to American health food stores as the newest super food.

These beautiful little fruits are native to the Andes of South America where they grow profusely. They especially like to trail among rows of native corn where little children pick them to supplement family nutrition. When ripe, the outer shell is discarded and only the bright yellow-orange fruit is eaten. They taste moderately sweet, with a slight citrusy tang. Gathered wild, they are eaten fresh and are also made into a preserved commercial jam, but with lots of sugar added.

Pigeon Peas

This edible legume plant will grow just about anywhere. They can cope with poor soils and little water. Of course they will grow faster, bigger, better, and live longer if they have plenty of water and nutrients. You grow pigeon peas from seed. There are many varieties of pigeon pea around the world, from tall tree like species, to smaller bushes and dwarf varieties. The pods and seeds of this plant are edible and are used essentially as vegetables. Seeds and immature pods are consumed as rich sources of mineral nutrients.
