It was horrible

This fruit was really bad, First of it was not like the imagine on the website, second it tasted horrible when i tried it, third when i gave it to my family and i shared some with my neighbor they also said it was horrible. DO NOT BUY THIS.

Gorgeous, tasty, and a HIT with the neighbors

I'm mildly sarcastic with the neighbors comment, as I had the city called on me over the "giant weeds" growing in my yard.

These seeds quickly germinated and took off, filling a small plot of of my front yard. My main issue that cost me many plants were feral cats that kept digging up the seedlings, but after they were established and a good foot high to start, the shade they cast ended up being a popular respite in the summer for a variety of city wildlife. The plants themselves are gorgeous, with a unique look that I loved to see every day coming home, and they tolerated my inconsiderate self forgetting to water them quite well, coming back strong after nearly wilting to the ground any time I left them for a few days. I pulled leaves here and there for salads, and they added an excellent flavor when mixed in with other greens. Birds and wind took many of the seeds before I could, but my first year was largely intended to test the plants out and get seeds for the future, rather than making a meal. I had several plants come up in the same area the next year on their own!
