Strawberry Trees are native to Britain but it is very rare to find a specimen in the wild. They are often in gardens and parks because they remain attractive throughout the year.
The bark is reddish-brown and the leaves dark and glossy. The tree bears attractive white flowers between October and December.
The Strawberry Tree is more common in Mediterranean regions.
The edible fruit take a year to mature, although they tend not to produce many because of the cool climate.
The trees are in All Saints churchyard which is open to the public
