Slow to establish but beginning to show stability in growth. Purchased from Daleys.
August 2009: Young fruits starting to appear
September 2009: Some growth recorded. All fruit has dropped before maturing. Perhaps its nature's way of emphasizing on plant growth instead of fruit production. Applied sulphate of potash and watered in. More growth recorded.
October 2009: More growth recorded but all fruit has dropped.
November 2009: More growth recorded. No fruiting activity.
December 2009 to February 2010: Not much growth this period. Some fruiting activity but fruit drops before ripening.
