Impressive Clark, I think you better stock up on Ibuprofen - you’re going to be wore out time you get done with the June harvest!
I think I made a big mistake not pruning them before now, but after last summer I decided I needed to get these down to a manageable height. They were 10,11 & 12’ and the pickers weren’t to careful as they tried to get the fruit up high. And we always wind up leaving a lot of the fruit at the top.
No more! I took 3-4’ off in March. They’re all right around 8’ now. I’m sure it’ll lessen the overall total harvest but I’m okay with that.
Mine are a few days away, but it looks like Juliet is going to pop in a day or so, while the CP’s look sickly again this year. I’ll take a picture when everything is in bloom but I just know I’m going to be embarrassed with how unphotogenic the Crimson Passion will be…
