I am so happy to read your article. My aunt bought one of these plants at our local veggie stand and I was so impressed with it, I went to the same stand and bought one for myself. We have the red-stemmed kind. I didn't know much about this plant except that the folks at the stand said it was edible. Are the berries edible or are they just for seeds? Mine is on my back porch and gets the eastern sun. By 10:30 or 11:00 a.m., it's in shade. It seems to be doing okay although not as full-leaved as my aunt's plant. Her porch gets more sun than mine. My plant is becoming a vine but looks good. I think I'll get brave enough to sample a leaf...

Glad you're enjoying your plant. Be brave! Pick a few leaves and toss them in a raspberry-flavored vinegar dressing with a few sliced strawberries. M-m-m-m!
