Yes, but how do you separate out the seeds? The skin is also tasty, but a
little leathery. That doesn't leave all that much pulp to eat.
Mine doesn't get much sun, so its fruits are small.

Propagate by semi-hardwood or hardwood cuttings or grafting
More info at http://www.pfaf.org/user/cmspage.aspx?pageidX
"The plant can also be propagated by cuttings, though these are not as
vigorous as seedlings. However, if you know of a particularly good
fruiting form* then cuttings are the best way of increase. Half-ripe
side shoots 10 - 15cm long and preferably with a heel can be taken in
July or August. Put them in a sandy compost and place them in a lightly
shaded place in a greenhouse or polytunnel. It is important to keep the
shoots in a fairly humid atmosphere and preferably with some bottom heat
to encourage rooting. Rooting should take place within a few weeks,
though we usually get quite poor results. We get a much better take with
hardwood cuttings in late autumn once the leaves have fallen. These
should be 15 - 20cm long of the current years growth and preferably with
a heel. We put them straight into the ground in a polytunnel and usually
get good results."

good flowering forms, too.
