    Said to contain three times as many antioxidants as blueberries, these dark purple-red berries, which can be harvested in autumn, have a tart flavour when eaten raw, but are delicious when cooked and used in compotes, summer puddings and jams.

  • Garden care: Each year in February or March remove one in three of the older stems of established specimens.
