Paul, That's a big fruit...your way ahead as usual, mine are just starting to bud and bloom, some of them. Thanks to your Bloom Booster advice they are at least blooming earlier then last year...lol
Here's what I mean...P.Alata has had 3 blooms so far and making little budlings for some more. I don't know if it will fruit where I have it or if it is able to be polinated here at all.

Nice Job Paul...hope the cross took for you!

that is a beautiful bloom!

If you use bloom booster does this feed the vine as well, or only the bloom? Do you use these only on the ones bearing fruit?

Bloom booster is a formula of fertilizer that has a higher middle number than the other two of the NPK ratio. It still has some nitrogen in it and other micronutrients and so yes it still feeds the plant, just gives more of what it needs to bloom.

I give it to all my flowering plants because I love flowers.

Good to know, thanks for the tip. I love flowers too, most of what I have flowers as well so I will have to look into that.

thanks!
