Growing local

15th November, it's about a week old. See the red-edged bracts? The white-fruited have all-green bracts. The ants are likely pollinators.

My (red) ones grow on the back east facing fence and don't get any love or attention from me at all. And yet they thrive and produce. Not to say that with a bit more tlc I might get more fruit!

Thanks for pic Elaine,  I have read the notes you mentioned and it was quite informative. It is obvious that mine need more water.  I believe the structure is OK, the red one is high up a trellis, they did that themselves.  It looks like the healthiest one and it is branching out. 

The white one looks like it is growing in poor conditions, but it is only about 6 ft from the red one. Not enough water on that one as well.   The yellow one also looks deprived.  More food and water needed and I have never given them lime yet so maybe a little of that and some sweet talkin.
