Gardeners' Notes:

First time grower this year. Started seeds in Jiffy pellets. They transplanted without any problem, grew rapidly to what seems to be their final size, about 14 inches tall, and started producing blossoms very quickly, have set fruit even though night temps until recently have been in the 40s. They are a bushy, sturdy plant. Some lower leaves got diseased looking and I removed them, but the balance of the plant looks very healthy. Looking forward to tasting them.

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.
