As long as you keep it free of frost, and pot into a larger pot every so often, it will eventually make a small tree. Ours is about six years old, six feet tall, with a lot of branches at the end of a bare stem. It's in a huge pot and is so heavy we can hardly move it.
So I don't know why we keep it! As it will never fruit in our climate and I'm told in natural conditions grows to about 30 feet high!
Young plants like the one in your picture are far more attractive as they make nice pot plants for the first year with large beautiful leaves. Just grow it, enjoy it and then throw it away.
