Hmm. I have had two get to the size of a large grape, eaten them and they were refreshing but that is from nine very large sprawly plants so i do not think i will grow them again unless the hundreds of peasize ones suddenly grow and give me a great crop. They reached the top of the conservatory before it was struck by lightning but i was already thinking of withdrawing my precious metered water from them. We will not get better weather than this summer for them so i think i should leave it to the Mexicans to grow them. Other members of the Nation of Gardeners are growing them, some outside so if any have rave accounts to report to Mr. fothergill i will let you know, Linda. I grudge them the room in the conservatory - not at all easy like tomatoes.
