Thank you for the compliment orchidman1. I think/hope I solved my own question. I've Epi. hookerii that bloomed in the past. This year? I didn't see one bloom. MMMmmmm, then I browsed the plantfiles on DG. Guess what? The fruit does look like that of hookerii's Epi's. One of the reason why DG is so valuable to me, if I don't have the answer to my plants; the info. I find here at DG will HAVE that answer.

Mystery solved!
