Hey, I forgot to ever circle back last year at the end of the season to check-in on this project. I planted quite a few seeds and has come good plants. I had a few fruits seemed to develop well but my 2 year old daughter took it upon herself to pick one before it even had developed seeds and the other ones disappeared randomly I assume from local wild life. I will try again this year and see how things shake out.
Full time small scale farmer and aspiring landrace plant breeder. Current breeding focus for the season are Tomatoes, Melons, watermelons, and potatoes.

Last year I harvested one fruit, this is probably F3.
This and a second plant that I unfortunately chopped off were very strong and hardy and grew without much care. The fruit is still stored in the warm with no signs of decay.
