Is it in ground or potted?

Nice. Mine is a little behind on schedule with yours, but should put out a bloom in a couple weeks at most.

I put one of mine into the ground last year here in Tampa.  It made it through our coldest weather this year which was  about 33ļF.

It is now about 3-1/2 feet tall and has filled out nicely.  It finally has buds on it this year.

Hoping that I will get a few fruit this season.

Cheers!

Are you watering extra to encourage the growth and blooms? I have a 10ft one thatís maybe 7yrs old or more and It didnít put out a single flower last year. Had dozens the years before.

Yes...
For the last couple of months I've made sure they were watered often and weekly fertilized with Miracle Grow at regular strength.

Listen cousin Kev, I know you're doing something else. I've bought Cherry of the Rio Grande's from you and they grew twice as fast as the ones I bought in Florida. What's the secret sauce? Don't make me buy the Grumichamas too. You know I'll do it ;D ;D ;D
I don't suppose you have some 3 gals you will ship ;)

Not right now... Maybe by mid-summer I'll have some to share... stay tuned.
These are just some pictures of my personal pets.

I'm under the impression that plants from Florida are so acclimated to such a favorable environment, that when they get shipped to us colder (maybe drier) climates, the plants are essentially being sent to purgatory. I think plants that are grown in harsher environments seem to perform better and take re-acclimation to new environments much easier.  This is based off of some papers &books  I've read about plant physiology, development and cold tolerance as well as personal experience.

In the Winter... they stayed in a cool, but never freezing greenhouse.
They rest of the year they get full sun.
Never let them dry out... and don't forget to fertilize them regularly.
Basic stuff...
