This plant is an easy plant to grow from seed. The difficulty is to get them to flower. They need up to seven months to ripen the fruits and although the plant will survive light frost, it becomes a deciduous and loses all its leaves if the temperature falls too low. As a small shrub the plant is very ornamental with small leaves along the stem. If it is to flower it needs some heat and protection during the winter over here. The flowers are wonderful and looks like a double red rose.
