This plant is amazingly prolific and very easy to grow. The crisp, fleshy fruits are up to 11cm in length with a mild heat. The fruits are good for chopping into a stir fry or for frying/grilling whole. The fruits are normally harvested yellow to keep the plant fruiting, but if left on the bush they will ripen to orange. The first crop is ready for picking about 70 days from potting on.
We have found that this plant has a tendency to fruit a little too early, which can stunt its early growth. If this happens, simply pick off the first few fruits to allow the plant to develop a little longer.
