Was given this plant as a supplier's bonus. Since it was labelled a dwarf, I tried two in hanging baskets. They kept growing and I had to lengthen the supporting wires three times. They eventually ended up about 3-4 ft high. Whoever described this as "under one pound" was a little overoptimistic. The fruits are ping-pong ball size, red, and of average taste. I started them indoors in February, (outside in late May) and they took until July to ripen, so I would suspect that they are in the late maturity bracket. Fairly good production though, so I might try it in the ground next year.
