It started with a wee pip, about the size of a melon seed. Which then grew and grew and pretty well took over the greenhouse. Achocha ‘Fat Baby’. Looks prickly but isn’t. Tastes rather like green peppers and can be used as such. Today I had to hack it back to clear a bit more space for the tomatoes. Note to self: do not plant achocha in greenhouse again.

The rest of the harvest was rather better mannered, including some lovely blackberries from the hedge around the allotments. More fruit leathers I think!
