Keurig verpakt en hoog kiempercentage.

De plantjes blijken echter een stekelige vorm van de Lulo te zijn en niet een cultuurvarieteit met weinig stekels zoals op de foto's.

Het is daarm de vraag of deze planten wel vruchten geven die geschikt zijn voor consumptie, zou jammer zijn als het niet zo is na het lange opkweken.
