Hey Len, I can’t tell you whether they’re edible or not before being ripe but I was eating them and feel fine!
I also don’t use a pepper grinder or coffee grinder so I can only tell you that they work fine with a Mortar & Pestle.
About how many you should plant? Well, I also can’t tell you that but if my first description of their huge size gives you any indication, I’d say all you need is one or two. We just have one and it is still small (vine 7cms thick) but gave about 200 grams of seeds. But hey, If you have a huge property, plenty of vines will give it that awesome jungle atmosphere and could probably be harvested for building purposes. Also, I wouldn’t recommend planting next to/on a house because they might get into the eaves and pull your brick/wood work apart. Just a suggestion.
they are going to be grown on teh western fence which currently is shaded in teh arvo’ by teh radiata pines next door.
they are currently doing well.
