Very nice!

These turned out to be too vigorous for me in ground, I have been re-grafting onto Flying Dragon for my greenhouse.  You might have better luck in containers, indoors, without them getting out of hand

Are yours normally indoors when they bloom?  Are you getting seedless fruit?

I noticed that the one in my greenhouse would often make entire crops of totally seedless fruit, while the ones that spent time outdoors were very seedy.

Thanks Brian  This is the first  time any bloomed indoors with more than 1 or 2 flowers.  I have a seed grown Fukushu out side that has fruited for the second time.  My container seems to limit my tree above to its currant size.  I have a Fukushu on flying dragon in a 13 gallon pot that I grafted 6-22-2020, that is growing well.  It flowered profusely 3 time last summer but no fruit set.  The Fukushu on Flying dragon
