Very soft, sweet fruit .  Not choclatey in flavour, but is nice especially when mixed with other flavours (rum, vanilla ice-cream,etc).  My children love it. Planted early May 2012.

I have eaten chocolate pudding fruit before and really liked the taste. I have had flowers already but I pulled them off (which killed me :)) because I wanted the plant to focus on growth.

Hi. I found that cross-pollination with another variety makes all the difference.

Comments: - This is the start of my tropical plant growing. The picture shows my 1st, and cheapest  greenhouse - an old fridge with the sides jigsawed out, and replaced with piecess of perspex and glass that I had lying around. At the moment it is a temporary home for black sapotes, coffees, blueberries, dragon fruit, and a pepino - with more on the way. When it gets a little too hot - the thermometer inside shows >=35oC, I crackopen the top door. It is kept warm - around 24oC O/N, even on below zero, frosty nights here in Clare, with a 70W incandescent glope, old quit and a tarp if it is raining. Next GH will be a shuttle with a clear polycarb top, before progressing to a poly tunnel, and finally, a twin walled polycarbonate GH with summer cooling and winter heating.

Can never find the fruit this far south and always wanted to try one. Again, will need to have absolutely everything on my side for this but I don't mind a challenge.

UPDATE: handful of flowers coming out on plant now after heavy downpours. I keep the water up to this in the pot so hopefully it continues to grow well. Will hurt picking off the flowers but it's for the greater good.
