Is it normal for a seedling to flower so soon.  The seedling was purchased at Daley's nursery 2015 in Australia, it was a trial plant. 
The flowers did not pollinate well in late 2018 but the next flowering in 2019 produced fruit. Then I missed one lot of fruit which turned into seedlings at the base.  This year I managed to eat and save a few seeds.  It is a great flavour.
It is growing in a rubbish bin and is just over a metre high.  Is this normal?

Hi Queenbee, sounds like the same mix up that confused me for a long time. They have somehow mixed up Coronata with Costada (understandable perhaps). It was a happy mistake for me as the Coronata (Not that they say which Coronata it is) take ages to fruit from seed and as you have discovered the Phitrantha Costada is extremely quick off the mark for a jabo. Enjoy
