It has exceeded all growth expectations from when first planted in 1992. It’s readily accepted edible midsized shoots harvesting over a ten week. A popular upright tight clumping species favoured by landscapers and permaculture growers. It’s the most versatile and popular productive windbreak, avenue or feature plant in South East Qld.
