My blue java bunch is about the same age a size yours. It had 9 hands!! Very nice bunch!! I pruned 2 hands. I'll post it all around harvest time.

Congrats man! 3 flowers is awesome!! Let us know how you like both when you taste them!!!
just wondering I can replace the top on the rajahpuri in the pit and should stay above 45 or 48
degres at night and 70 or better in the day till at least christmas do you think they would continue to mature like that?

Possibally. I'm not sure though! I know a friend who overwintered a dwarf Orinoco dormant with an immature bunch hanging! The following spring they started filling again! DO is a tough plant but it is proof that it can go dormant and not loose the bunch!!!!!

I always do everything I can do to get filled fruit before frost!
