P-stem is starting to bulge today as the flower starts pushing out. This is my first flower, so I wonder do I need to support the fruit with supports? or is it not needed?

You'll have to be the jusdge yourself. I dont think they all need support and I didn't do any extra to mine but may of we get some high winds. If you get a big heavy bunch I'd definitely do it.

The hot weather shouldn't adversely affect it, but I'd be checking the soil moisture twice a day and watering when applicable to prevent it from being too dry for too long of duration. It would also be best to water in early morning or evening.
