Very small plant
Reviewed By: Tracy (Firestone, CO)
These are so small. They came in 2 inch pots and damaged. Not priced right for the size.

Worth the wait
Reviewed By: Richard Orloski (Allentown, PA)
I ordered a pair of these in 2007. I built a very sturdy trellis on faith, and finally, in 2009, I had a stalk reach the top of the trellis. I have fruit this year, but I'm not sure when it will be ripe. This plant has a high barrier to growing (building a trellis) and requires patience, but I think it was worth it!

love them
Reviewed By: Dave (Pittsburgh, Pa)
I bought a pair of these plants 2 years ago. They were very slow to grow the first year because of little rain. Last year they started to take off. This spring they grew with vigor one would have to see to believe. The deer niped the new shoots in the spring, but they recovered with vigor. I am hoping now to see them set fruit. I couldn't be happier with their amazing vigor.
