Default Rosella

Mine remained vigorous for a long time, although it is now covered with mold as it is grown in the greenhouse, the cukes are spreading the mold.

Lots of clusters of small fruit, really nice flavor but I grew tired of harvesting them. It is worth growing though.

I really like the flavor, although I wish it lasted longer - it's kind of a burst and then over. The fruit was very good, and the plant initially promised great vigor, but at this point in the season it has turned into a bit of a dud.
