I am growing this as a pepper vine replacement , not as a vine but to see if it produces pods with the spicey seeds . I have no idea about it at all ,  size/spread , growing conditions /taste / edibility/ /seed preperation . I dont know if it will ever flower or fruit (it has flowered) . Its spreading like bamboo but it is fairly easy to hack out . It seems to run just under the surface and is like ginger . It will be interesting to see how unwieldy it gets . Could be a good alternative to tiger grass . I doubt if it will exceed 3 mts in height in full sun but that is just my opinion .
