    Im reading conflicting views on this plant. Some say Hardy some say semi hardy and some say tender. I was wondering if anybody has experience of this variety? Im on the south east coast so one of the warmest parts of the UK and would want to keep it out side but in a reasonably sheltered postion. Yes the fruit would be nice but its the flowers and their colour that Im particularly drawn to.s-l1600.jpg

    Ive only grown edulis from seed so can't really speak of this variety.
    My thoughts are it would not be hardy in my garden, but on the coast you might get away with it given a south facing position, perhaps on a wall.
