So I was quite surprised to see the size of this plant.  What a beast!!!  Seem to grow quite robust in their native climate in Colima.

And no, as we now know from the other post (and in Baensch's book), the berries are not ripe.  Should be yellow.

Great photos Andy. Always good to see plants you are growing in the wild and see their dimensions. It's a massive bugger.

Nev, you gave me a whole tray of seedlings  Shocked  !!!!! 

Hmmm, I'm running out of lawn even before I plant these out, but I seem to recall from your recent pics that you still have plenty out the front ......
