What are the pros? Hard to kill, easy tending
What are the cons? Needs support for strong winds
So far so good, we have had 4 successful germinations from 5 seeds, 1 being 2 months late and 1 successfully murdered by the cat! We planted these far too early for our climate with little light and they grew up to the ceiling searching for light. We chopped them back to about a foot in the spring and let them grow new stronger shoots before putting them outside. When you put them out, they will probably lose most of their leaves and look a bit dead for a while. Don't panic! Ours sprouted new branches at EVERY spot where it had lost a leaf and started 3 new sprouts at the base. This thing is hard to kill it seems!
I would recommend you to cut back the plant to a smaller size every month or two while it is young to encourage the roots and promote vigorous growth.
I haven't yet tasted the fruit but i highly recommend this plant for it's vigor. But watch out if you have a cat! They love the young and tender leaves (unless it's just our cat being strange).
Would you recommend this product to a friend?
