This plant is usually found grafted but it proved to groove well and
pretty easy on its own roots too.
Water regularly in summer, keep rather dry in winter,
but can handle excessive water to few water, best
for half-shade but grow well in full sun and full shade too (but in
full sun turns an uneven brownish red colour).
Propagation: Grafting or seed (seldom available) Seed
ripen, fruit must be significantly
overripe before harvesting seed; clean and dry seeds.
