Harvest and cure . Store when Orange and it will last for 12months. Also if you cut a piece off to use, the rest will dry over and not go mouldy so you don't have to use the whole thing in one go. Enjoy
Have grown these for the last four years and they are great. Have had them grow to over a foot long in a curvy way. I now grow them up a plastic netting frame from two plants in a long planter. Cannot manage to keep them long enough to dry off as I use them in my Branston type pickle. Well worth a try.
