From the hot Mediterranean coastal climates to the deserts of the Middle East and onwards to the dry parts of North West China, capers have flourished and thrived on very bright sunlight and high temperatures.

They have adapted, survived and provided a spicy flower bud (the caper), and delicious fruit (the caperberry) for our table. In a declining water environment, caper plants are easy to grow and enjoy.

Eureka Caper

The ‘Eureka’ Caper plant is a thornless bush, it produces more capers in weight each time it is harvested and it begins to shoot and grow earlier in the spring than other bushes. It continues to flower and leaves stay green longer into the autumn and winter and it truly is a special and superior caper plant.
