It’s no secret that fruits are packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that are beneficial for health. Having fruit plants at home encourages a healthier diet. Here are just a few of the benefits of the different fruit plants Moore Berries UK have for sale:


  • Strawberries are packed with vitamins C, K, and B9 (folate). They also contain manganese, potassium, and antioxidants like flavonoids and phenolic acids. This fruit is also rich in antioxidants. These berries are loaded with antioxidants that help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body, potentially lowering the risk of chronic diseases.

  • Currants. These contain anthocyanins, flavonoids and polyphenols, powerful antioxidants that help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, reducing the risk of chronic diseases. They’re also high in Vitamin C which supports the immune system, helps in collagen production, and acts as an antioxidant. Currants are also believed to be good for the health of your heart since they have fibre, potassium, and antioxidants.

  • Raspberries are a great source of vitamins C and K, manganese, and dietary fibre, which are essential for overall health. They are loaded with antioxidants like ellagic acid, quercetin, and anthocyanins, which help fight oxidative stress and inflammation in the body, potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Some studies suggest that the antioxidants in raspberries may help prevent certain types of cancers by inhibiting the growth of cancer cells.

  • Gooseberries which are packed with vitamins C, A, and E, as well as potassium, calcium, and antioxidants like polyphenols and flavonoids, which support overall health. They’re also believed to boost someone’s immunity. Their high vitamin C content supports the immune system, helping the body fight infections and diseases.

Supermarket fruit is often shipped in from foreign countries, which means it's rarely completely fresh.

Your fruit will be able to ripen naturally, without any nasty chemicals or pesticides involved. 


Having fruit plants means you rely less on store-bought produce, contributing to a more self-sufficient lifestyle. These plants can also attract pollinators like bees and butterflies, therefore having a positive impact on your garden.
