Comments: -

Leaves are very spicy, great for cooking. Growing rather vertically at the moment. Brilliant red stems contrast with the dark green leaves. tolerates full sun to full shade (though it prefers full sun, and mines growing in the sun). Also tolerates both heat and cold very well. Does get a bad problem with scale and aphids, and does a bit of coppicing. appears to be drought tolerant, but may need water while it first develops.

Needs both male and female plants to produce berries. Don't know which mine is (haven't seen any flowers yet). But leaves are fanatastic anyway.

It died after a fungal problem combined with an extended period without water. I will try again as it was doing very well before this.
