Default early bloom

Hello all,, this plant is in Western Kentucky, put it in the ground about 4-6 weeks ago,, put out two leaves and this popped out already , I'm not sure what variety it is
It seems a little early and the plant doesn't have many leaves. No shade!!!

thoughts on,, if this will mature or what is going to happen, or what I can do to may be help it out?






I guess it was getting ready to bloom when dug up last fall and just went dormant?

Any one seen, or is this uncommon for a plant to do this , this early?

I thought as tall and good as it looked when planted, it might grow to be a tall and big plant,, so much for that I guess!!

I'm sure its too early for an ID ?
might post some pics of the fruit if it matures.

Thanks for any advise or suggestions!!

Congrats!

Maybe you can increase your fertilizer application to see if that helps any fruit to fill in / ripen.
