I grew this for the first time this year, with very little success. I got a very low yield, though what I got had good flavor, with no bitterness at all. Much like a green Thai EP, but larger, with the fully formed seeds in the fruits, which were about 4" in dia., x 2" thick, with a hollow area in the middle. I may try again, as all of my EP did not do well this year, I assume due to intense heat, though this is from a hot region, so it seems it shouln't have been affected by this.
