A lot of us got excited when what looked like a mini version of the prolific Peppino (Solanum muricatum) was obtained by Rob from Fair Dinkum Seeds.
Unfortunately the initial promise has not been realised as these fruit remain hard marbles after months of hanging from the branches. Perhaps this is why Fair Dinkum Seeds no longer sell them? I'm still curious to see how long the fruits will actually take to ripen so will not compost yet but even if they finally do ripen and taste okay the harvest versus growing time really make it more of a curiosity then a viable food producer.
