Following pretty yellow flowers with a chocolate blotch centre, the bright orange-yellow fruits are produced - not that you would know as each is formed within a delicate papery pod. Whilst the papery pods make the fruit extremely decorative (and so a popular exotic garnish for restaurant desserts), the husk actually serves a more important purpose in that picked fruit left within the husk will have a 'shelf life' of a month or more at room temperature.
With a gorgeously sweet flavour, these are perfect for eating raw and are great in fruit salads; they are often served with Avocado in some parts of the world. They are also wonderful for making pies or jam with.
As these are not hardy in the UK, many treat them as an annual, which is such a shame. We would suggest lifting before first frosts, potting into a large container and over-wintering in a frost-free greenhouse or similar; of course, they are a perfect subject for container growing due to their tenderness.
