I have gotten a few fruit off it now. Even in the pot it looks huge and is holding it's fruit quite well. During the winter it was carrying about 3 fruit but they didn't really ripen like they did during summer.

I personally love the taste it is great. Nice and sour with a bit of sweetness and very creamy. The pulp though is disgusting make sure you get rid of every skeric.

I find that a little spider likes to hide under the leaves and this causes the leaves to curl up. If it did get too bad I would prob try and spray it with something but haven't needed to yet.
