I was expecting the height to be about 8ft. But may be where I am I would guess may be 6 - 7 ft.

Don't worry San, once it's in the ground and the weather warms up it will soon romp away and fatten up. Just feed it and give it plenty of water and you can't go wrong.

I now have success on both seedlings and am very happy about this. The second seedling took a lot longer to germinate, but well worth the wait.
