They’re giants already. 💚🌱💚. Four and a half feet tall.
Just saw your older photo when they were just starting out! Wasn't even long ago. Some growth!
@craigh7 It’s unbelievable, even considering the heat. They grow faster than the weeds!
Interesting shape! The like balloons. Is it edible?
@rikkie Yes, absolutely. I grow them so that I can make salsa verde and green sauces for my Tex Mex. The fruit eventually splits the lantern and they look like little tomatoes with husks.
Wow. Never seen these before
@CheerfulandLiterate for Tex Mex cuisine 😊 so the plant doesn't just look exotic but also offers you a nice ingredient! Excellent 😍
A bit of bug damage (that’s typical), but otherwise looking healthy! Can’t wait for salsa verde. 💚
Looking healthy ... so far! Growing fast. Will start to harden off in a week or so. These guys were so prolific last year!
