OMG look at the blooms on the purples. YAY!!! those especially are looking amazing. If they taste good that will be a home run I think. A purple potato leaf multiflora cherry... unique I believe unless somebody else knows of another? clearly my ambrosia gold parent was a cross or unstable but that is turning out to be a good thing making things interesting as well as impossible to replicate. So looking forward to some ripe ones to see what colour they are. could be a surprise I think. The multiflora factor is so who knows if they will still be purple either.
fun fun fun and the plants look great Marsha

Hi Ella, nice to see you again. Yes, pink has a few ripening, I will photo and taste tomorrow. So much to do, so little time.

Time for photos.
First and last are KARMA PINK, getting ripe. Both same truss.
Second one down is the KARMA PURPLE multiflora, set a lot of fruit on its first truss.
Third and fourth are the KARMA DEEP PINK, no green shoulder. Note that one is taking on a beefsteak shape.

Wonder what we will get. Pink gets tasted tomorrow. Might be stable.

Colour is beautiful. Same as mine. I hope they taste great.... crossing my fingers. Similar form in the pink, clusters rather than trusses. Excited about the multiflora, I sure hope it's a black (clear epidermis)
