Turns out the SB is a MF?!

Meaing my Sweet Beverly is a Multiflora. It will throw tons of blooms a each blossom point. Cool cause this doesn't always come up.

gixxerific,
Will you get that many fruit to set? If so, you may need a special support system for that plant. Wild looking plant with all those flowers.

Not all of them will sprout. This is a cherry so extra support is not necessary.

I got my first "truss cluster" on one of my Mortgage Lifters last week - it had upwards of 15 flowers on it. As of yesterday afternoon, ot had five or six tomatoes forming on it, with plenty more blossoms with the potential to fruit.

I'm actually a little concerned about how I'm going to support it!!
