This creamwah mat of mine is an unstoppable juggernaut! Since my first harvest last December, I've harvested two other bunches this year and now I have three filling and a forth on the way. None of my other varieties perform like this one. Not sure why (I think it's because it's my wife's favorite)

I've let this mat grow with less management than the others. I imagine the bunches could be bigger but we can only eat so many at once anyway, so this is working for us.

Yours appear to be the real thing. I bought two "African Rhino's" from Home Depot which ended up being something else.

Yes, leaning is very common in my experience with Ice Cream. It's one of the reasons I have ripped out most of them. I can have it propped in 3 directions and it magically finds a way to fall the opposite way. Maybe 1/3 of bunches make it to full maturity.

The Blue Java/Ice Cream they have at Quail Gardens in Encinitas are terrible leaners, too. The one in my yard is still too small to lean -- yet!

Might be the last time I let it flower too. No sense in keeping it when there are so many better tasting varieties to be had.
