Bought in Feb 2019 about 1 meter tall, planted in pot with citrus potting mix, topped with sugarcane mulch. Growing vigorously and putting out lots of new shoots. Cold hardy, tolerated Canberra winter (-10 C). Pruned once in Sep which stimulated more growth. Sustained hail damage in Mar 2020, knocked off its first yet-to-ripe fruit. Many leaves and branches were injured however she has continued to put out more fruit. Fertilized in Apr 2020 - Looking forward to tasting its very first harvest soon!
