Arbutus unedo blooms in midwinter and its fruits take a year to  
ripen.  I think some of the citrus take even longer.  Someone near  
here grows them along a fence with a glass roof above them.  I have  
bought trees from him but have not had fruit.

I also have never had fruit on Vaccinium ovatum.  I wonder if I have  
it in too much shade - I have it on the north side of some apples and  
filberts.
