Item description

Decaisnea fargesii: is a deciduous shrub/small tree growing to 4 m (13ft) by 4 m (13ft) at a medium rate.
It is hardy to zone (UK) 5 and is not frost tender. It is in leaf from late March/early April. It is in flower in June, and the seeds ripen from September to October. The flowers are hermaphrodite (have both male and female organs)The plant is self-fertile.

Suitable for: light (sandy), medium (loamy) and heavy (clay) soils. Suitable pH: acid, neutral and basic (alkaline) soils. It can grow in semi-shade (light woodland) or no shade. It prefers moist soil.

Decaisnea can be grown as an ornamental plant for its foliage and decorative fruit, bright blue in many cultivated specimens. Most plants in cultivation derive from Chinese seed and are commonly grown under the name D. fargesii. The plants are successfully grown in cooler temperate climates, and in fertile,  moist but well-drained soils. They are tolerant of temperatures as low as 15 °C (5 °F).

Fruit - Raw. A sweet taste, but can be rather insipid. A very nice delicate flavour depending on your palate. The fruit looks like a bright blue sausage or broad bean pod and is up to 10cm long. You peel off the skin in much the same way as you would peel a broad bean pod, this reveals a line of seed running the entire length of the fruit surrounded by a relatively thin layer of flesh.

Packet contains a minimum of 7 seeds and is covered by our unconditional, full refund guarantee including postage costs if seeds do not germinate.


This is new stock for the present growing season. All our seeds are supplied in sealed packets to maintain freshness and come with our unconditional germination guarantee. We have over 400 varieties of vegetable, salad, herb and flower seeds with many unusual varieties not normally seen in the UK. The small grower has the opportunity to sow and evaluate the crops from these seeds and the flower grower to add even more sparkle to spring and summer borders. In addition to trial sowing for germination made by the seed supplier we also do our own here in Kent and grow to maturity to check that local conditions are suitable for a variety. We also welcome feedback from our buyers about their experience, this helps increase our knowledge. All seeds are to UK Rules and Standards.
