This one in the wine barrel has grown to slightly more than 1 metre tall. The last hot spell seemed to have promoted a lot of growth. I added in lots of water, of course - both in the morning and evening each day.

If your plant is from seed, it will take a long long time before it will fruit for you. Since this is a very slow growing plant . Mine is in the ground and it was waist height when I put it in the ground, it has been 10yrs and it had only grown a bit more than 0.5m in height .

Has grown by about one foot since I last posted this picture. Due mainly to the hot weather last summer. I fed it lots of water both in the morning and evening.
