I give to the neighbors but still end up feeding a lot to the red worms.I think I'm going to start thinning and see if I'll get larger fruit.

Richard,

Regarding sweetheart, the mature ones they have at Quail gardens (I'm sure you've been there) are just like Tony said -- 10-12' and incredibly stout -- the thickest variety they have, and they have many. I'd estimate close to 2' diameter.

EDIT: Ok, just went back to Quail Gardens today -- I'll be realistic, they are more than 1' diameter but not 2'. But they do have the thickest p-stems of any of the varieties they have.
