The fruit stands in upright clusters above glossy green leaves, and it changes colour as it ripens. Being an ornamental variety, the fruit is edible but not very tasty. Rather enjoy the display as an indoor plant or on a sunny patio table. They need bright light indoors, and evenly moist soil. After the festive season, plant outside as a bedding plant or in the veggie garden.
