I love the flavor of katuk, don't you. Yours looks like it might be happier with a little more shade.

The leaves have a peanut flavor have not tasted the fruit yet.I don't have any shade  for the containers that aren't cold hardy. I saw how you spelled katuk

The flowers have a mushroom taste and the fruits are sort of bland with mushroom overtones. I think of this plant as a perennial vegetable.
