When grown as a container plant, its plump sweet fruit is easily picked and is also easily protected from birds with lightweight netting. It is hardy as a garden plant in zones 5-9. When grown outdoors, it is deciduous. When grown inside, it will hold its leaves and continue to flower and fruit as long as the light level is high enough.
