    Looks tasty… how big is it?

    a whopping 4 inches (10 cm). these are green fingers, a baby variety. chose these because they are supposedly heavy cropping though there’s not much of a crop this year. fruits usually grow to about 6 inches. they do taste good too!

    Looks nice and if it tastes good twice better!!

    How big is the plant? Does it need a lot of space? I have a small plot and I’d like to try a baby variety for next season.
