DAP 7 - finally, I have a 1623.5 Wallace x self, but this one did not come by the easy way!! Her name is Miss Muffitt. The plant was hit really hard by a disease somewhere in the soil, so she has lost most of her main vine and the fruit is growing off the secondary to the east on a nice curve. All new plant growth shown in next pics. All vine after the fruit was removed, sand for the base, shelter above from the scorching sun, vines buried, watered today, very hot, and drench with Companion Biological Fungicide with seaweed powder. The stump is oozing, so I have treated again with hydrogen peroxide. I am trying hard to hold her together, but the season and disease is making this a hard run!
