The variety is tentatively called Cherrylette, according to Rowena Bienes, a senior staff of the seed company. The fruits are a bit sour but are nevertheless nice to eat. It can be used in salads, or eaten fresh without any dressing. We tried adding a dash of “Balayan bagoong” and it was great eaten with rice.

Actually, Cherrylette comes in two colors – one red and the other yellow – both  in clusters. The plant is robust and can grow as tall as five feet. Thus it is best to provide stake or support.
