I'm leaving the DB and RP bunches on to see what they taste like. Both of these mats will be dug up soon and replaced with other varieties anyway.
I'm willing to go another season to get some decent PK fruit.
The pup will still be there even if you leave the mother right? What do you have to loose! And if you do decide to chop it down just hang it and let it ripen. I've had several bunches that never filled out but still ripen and taste great after hanging for a while. It does take longer to ripen them though.
