    “The plants will bear miniature fruit if grown in areas with year-round temperatures rarely fall below 40° F. To grow indoors, moderate night-time temperatures should be given (50° to 60° F). Keep at 40° to 45° F in winter until new growth appears. In the growing period, keep moderately moist. Water sparingly from August on. This plant requires good drainage. Plants will bear fruit indoors if grown in a sunny exposure.”  Missouri Botanic Garden.   This dwarf described in 1803.
