Dec 2011 - I've had this in the ground around 1.5 years and it has just flowered and set around 40 fruits to a size where most should mature. Cant wait!

Has flowered but not yet fruited (in Sydney) and will need another year or so before fruit.  I have it with a Ricks Late for cross-pollination. We sometimes get a bit of light frost and it does not like that but will endure it.  It's in a pot for now but will need to be planted out eventually.

Pollination: Self Pollination

Pest Control:

None needed
