Harvested this one today, probably having it for lunch. It’s the biggest one so far. We allowed it to get to about 20 cm or 7 inches long. I was a tad greedy and wanted the plant to grow big fruits so I have been watering the plant even in the late afternoon. I think this has caused the powdery mildew problem to recur. I had used a baking soda solution that was too concentrated the last time, causing the beautiful leaves on this plant to burn. I’m using a more diluted solution this time and added some detergent to make it stick. Have sprayed that on and will refrain from watering too late.
