A couple of blooms beginning to open, a lot still developing. Tallest mater is about 23 inches high. My plans at first was to prune all the suckers once the first fruit has set ,however, I cut off all the suckers except the one directly below the cluster today (this pic was taken before pruning). This is because the suckers have grown pretty large (6-7 inches) and leaving them to fruit set would mean 10-12+inch suckers being prunedh along with the very vigorous one directly below the first cluster, therefore stressing the plants a lot. I plan on single stemming most plants. Also, yesterday I fed with PK 13/14 and seasol(through the ground) and side dressed them. Other than that, temperatures have been changing drastically, from 33C down to 17C in one night (60F difference). I think they've acclimated to this weather and its sudden changes as they did not suffer any shock.
