Comments: -

They grow true to type from seed , I only grow the red variety, I find the yellow variety lacks flavour. After fruit has reached full colour do not be in a hurry to pick, wait for another 2 or 3 weeks to fully ripen , taste test frequently until ripe. I eat them fresh but I am told they are good cut in half lengthways, sprinkled with sugar and lightly grilled. The skin is bitter and should not be eaten. If blanched in hot water the skin can be slipped off.
