Thanks for your information.
I have been growing an all female , three plants, lots of flowers but thought I would still try to brush the pollen with my finger onto each flower .
Now thinking that this is a waste of time and perhaps the flowers do not have any pollen.
The fruit has been very slow to develop and a lot have not .
Perhaps I am expecting too much this early in the season, they are growing in two greenhouses , very high temp during the day, but even with every vent three in each and doors open perhaps too high for them.
Keeping the compost fairly damp with a tray of water beneath the leaves to increase humidity.
Any thoughts please on why so few are developing.
Removing side growths as info from seed firms that laterals should be removed on female types as not needed.
