It’s been quite some time since I mentioned the peanut butter fruit plant here because after my first and last post on it, nothing happened. Oh, it did bud and bloom several times, but it didn’t set fruit. So I naturally kept mum about it. (Whenever I stop talking about a plant, it means nothing has happened, or it died…)
Well, you can guess that I’m now talking about it because there’s a good reason – it has taken the next step and has finally set fruit! I noticed last week that there were a couple of possibilities among the flowers that bloomed, but it was only today that I confirmed that there are indeed two fruits growing. They are only going to be the size of cherry tomatoes, and we may have to contend with the ever-present birds to taste them, but I’m looking forward to watching these new (to us) fruits develop.
There are several other spikes of buds, but we’ll see whether they are fruitful too or not.
For a look at the development of the peanut butter plant, check out my previous post on it (8 months ago – yikes!).
