The ‘Wonderful' variety will also grow in large containers, rewarding you with beautiful blossoms that attract humming birds and butterflies. The sweet and tangy fruit is great for juicing or eating fresh and will be ready to harvest in September. Fall brings golden foliage, making this an attractive and easy to care for addition for your edible landscape.
