My pitogo just sent up a flag, but i have no idea what the bloom to harvest time is. Does anyone have any experience with this one?

Did your fruit develop on your Pitogo? How long from flag to fruit? Mine just sent up the flag leaf.

mine bloomed sometime in early- to mid-october, but i didn't capture the date so my flag-to-fruit won't be accurate.

Those who said it was their favorite meant eating ripe, uncooked.
