Grows like a weed in Arizona beds. Had multiple fruit set with temps in the mid 90s. However, taste was bland at best.

Started these from seed. The seed company said that these would be long vines, but in our area they are small bushes. They came from a desert area in Mexico, it's hot and sunny alright but also humid and wet in our area, so that may be the difference.
A bright tart flavor- I like it.
