So aesthetic posing on my kitchen table, I could hardly bring myself to eat them! 5" in size and porcelain-shiny black when ripe, they have a nice crispy texture and a tasty mild, sweet flavor. It's a bushy fellow about 30"-36" tall and a gorgeous and intriguing addition to the edible garden. Pretty in salads! A good producer, mine always had at least 5 fruits on it at any time and is still bearing as I write this in December. Open pollinated. Organically grown.
