Easy to grow

9 December 2018
I found they all germinated and grew quickly. I'm in Sydney and I sowed the seeds on 31St July in a cold frame in full sun. It worked really well. It's now December. The vine is maybe three metres long - it's still growing but very slowly. I have a few fruit that are about as big as they're going to get but I think it's at least a couple of months till I can harvest and eat them. They are easy to grow.
