I've been doing this for 4 or 5 years and have about a 75% survival rate.

Picked a couple lbs Rocotto from my unheated green house this morning. Vines about eight years old, in ground.

Nice. Certainly not one one sees all the time.

Did you start from seed?

Was it a slow grower?

Yes, seed from Baker Creek. Not that slow of a grower, about average I'd say. Been bearing for seven years at random seasons.
