£12.00

Monkey puzzle tree. Large evergreen tree with spidery branches from South America, potentially one of the best nut-producing trees in oceanic climates. Eventually reaches 30 m (100 ft) high, but slow growing, 2 m (7 ft) in 10 years) and doesn’t fruit for 40 years (so plant some for your descendants!) The large seeds, produced in huge cones, are edible with a chestnut flavour. Timber is used for construction, furniture, masts etc. Dioecious (need male & female trees for nuts), hardy to -15°C.
