It's lovely to eat the gorgeous fresh fruits of hotter countries when we go abroad on holiday, but even for us who aren't lucky enough to get much decent weather, there are still some fruits that will grow in cooler climates if you give them a bit of care and attention.

Kiwi fruits will bear fruit if you plant them in a sunny spot in a sheltered position. They need plenty of space, although there are some dwarf varieties. They will survive down to -15c. The fruit will grow in the autumn and winter.

Loquats are a winner for cooler climates and are prized by many gardeners for their sweet scented flowers and tasty fruit. If you're lucky, after a hot summer a loquat tree will bear fruit.Both peaches and nectarines will grow in cooler weather, Plant in a south facing sheltered spot for best results.

Other fruits to try are sharon fruit, figs, yacon and feijoa.
