I post this picture for Amy. It is an example of a female flower that will open in a few days. It is not a good angle and had aleaf directly above the fruit and a secondary vine also growing right next to the female. both have been removed. I removed the leaf and it's axil and the secondary and also carefully re-positioned the vine to grow away from the fruit. I move the vine an inch or less each day until I get the fruit to be on the outside of the curved vine. This is only day 2 of the process. The vine will eventually be turned away from the fruit to allow for shoulders to hopefully "NOT" grow into the vine , keeping the skin free of scratches . There are good examples of this in Don Langevin's books.
