Notes : Not the fastest grower compared to other varieties we grow here in Southern California but with its thicker skin on the stem growth which is colored semi-green to greyish-green growth its very hardy/durable taking high heat over 100 degrees well and cold. Older stem growth tolerates temps down to and slightly below 32 degrees for brief periods with no noticeable damage in winter. A good variety to grow in most locations, but should perform well in higher temperature locations such as Arizona, Nevada, South-west Texas, N.M., North Africa and Israel-mid east locations.
