My Mammoth Melting are 2.5m tall - flowers but no pods. Planted 23/4/20. ( long wait) The Oregan Dwarfs (Mr.Fothergills - from Bunnings) planted 25/4/20 are 1.2m - with flowers and pods. ( slower to flower than last batch - I guess due to the cooler weather). Seems the smaller the plant the faster to fruit, with these 2 varieties. My current pickings are from Oregan Dwarfs planted 13/3/20 and have been picking since 1/6/20.

I grow Oregon Giant - from Boondie seeds on the internet.. They grow to about 1.2-1.5m. I tried other varieties but they grew too high.
