Wondering about that myself. Mine are about 18 inches tall. Growing well but slowly at first. No signs of flowering yet. Do these plants prefer full sun or partial sun?

They are best in full to fifty percent sun, need just 3 years to fruit.. Can also be grown in containers..

OK, thanks for the info. Have plants both in full sun and partial shade to see which ones do better.
