Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 390 days 7hrs

Comments: - Removed. I wasn't that fussed on the fruit - barely any flesh and heaps of seeds. I didn't want the seeds germinating everywhere. It grew well in the shade here and handled winter fine. It needed a fair amount of water to look good.

Height 1.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

First Fruited: 1 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Low Sun
