Ripe fruits with husk still on. Fruits are about the size of a currant tomato or very small grape tomato. Bigger than a large blueberry.
This shows the size of the fruit pods. When ripe, the pods turn brown and fall off the vines. Harvest by lifting the vines and picking up the fruit pods.

Fruit/pods shown ripe (when husk is yellow/dry). Wait for husks to fall to the ground before harvesting.

Two plants in a ten gallon container. Hopefully, with the straw mulch to retain moisture, the container will be large enough.
