Give this cultivar of C. baccatum five stars. P,lants are very productive, growing upwards of 4 feet (treated as an annual). Harvest may occur from green (OK) through amarillo, i.e., yellow, (tasty) and orange (best) stage of maturity. Height of plant demands staking. Thin-walled fruits are very easy to dry. I\'ve grown for two years in north GA; will soon seed plants for first attempt at growing here in VA.
