I found these little delights at the farmers market.
A guy has been importing them from Columbia.
They are delicious.
And they have this cool little cape around them for protection.

Yummy.:D

You won't get vitamin b12 from bananas (but you will from these).
So buy a pound, cull some seed from them and plant 'em in your backyard.
Easy to grow, like tomatoes.
If you have no frost, or a very warm climate, they will produce lots of fruit.
I am going to grow a few next spring and will let you know how that works out.
I live north of Montana so if they will grow here you should have no problem.
I have heard that some people are growing them successfully in British Columbia.
They are very tasty and well worth the efforts, so if you would grow a tomato then these little beauties should be on your seeds to get list.
