Plants were vigorous and productive, but taste was terrible. Acidic at first, then left a nasty bitter after taste that was very difficult to get out of my throat. Even after being cooked into a sauce they left a bitter after taste. I stopped eating them, and would not recommend them to anyone. Puchased seed at a local garden centre in 2006, Yates brand I think.
