Ribbed red 3" fruits are borne in abundance on 2-3' tall plants. Fruits are flavorful and bitter and used extensively in Asian/African cuisine. Fruits are ripe when red. May be eaten boiled, steamed, pickled or in stews with meat and other vegetables. Young leaves are also often used in soups.

Growing Tips

Start indoors about 1/4” deep 6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant well after danger of frost and ideally when night temps don’t go lower than 50F. Plants grow two to three feet tall and should be planted 12-18 inches apart. Need full sun. Must be picked regularly when they are red.
