Thanks, ilex! Glad to hear that it's such a nice variety. My plants are huge and beautiful--if it weren't for the flea beetle damage, I would consider planting these as an ornamental edible. Very striking. To know they're also delicious is great.

Just one question--when they stop growing and start fading, that means they're past peak eating quality (well, most varieties), yes? So I should learn when that happens for a given variety and get a sense for when to pick right before that happens?
