You note on the web site that it'll grow to about 5ft.
How does 9 weeks in the ground, 4 main growing points,
countless leaders forming, only a few new small fruit
forming, still growing very fast, and now heading up
past 7ft sound???
Seriously, its bloody huge!
It started with a 4ft cage but outgrew that in weeks.
I have 2x6ft stakes which it has
now also outgrown. So I've had to run a trellis line
across at about the 7ft mark and am running support
lines down off that. Any growth over that is just going
to have to stay horizontal.
I planted 4 others: Grafted Apollo Improved and Gross
Lisse.... Heirloom Black
Russian and San Marzano. All of these are not much over
4 ft and NOWHERE near as bulky.
Not the best photo as it's blending in with the Fruit
trees and Zucchinis, but you can
see just how much I am having to try and support this
thing with twine.
