    It is so pretty. I guess those are the species that I only get to enjoy watching from far, far away. It is too hot here. Thanks for sharing.

    I ate it about 12yrs ago :biggrin: It was very sweet and better than the ones you buy, as is often the case with fruit that is allowed to fully ripen on the plant
