Satisfaction level with this plant will rise when I see fruit starting to form on the branches. I have high hopes for this one, it's growing way out of it's comfort zone, namely, I'm just an hours drive north of Sydney.. It doesn't quite frost here but it's only a deg or 2 away over winter. I have it in a reasonably protected spot in a pot.

Just one of those perannial plants that got out of hand. Apparently the vegetable must be picked very soon after the flower drops to be at their peak. I just let them ramble around, pulling up vines where they're not wanted. I don't think I give this vegetable the attention it deserves.
