A very interesting plant, indeed! Will be interesting as well to see what the leaves look like in a few weeks time & also when it fruits. In the mean time you have the great looking foliage to look at!

I have to agree, it’s definitely an all rounder plant! It has a bit of everything doesn’t it! Look forward to seeing more pics as it starts to settle in and flourish.
