This is the 6th time its bloomed this year. It has dozens of new buds on it right now...so it should be re-blooming in a week or so again for the 7th time. Photo taken Oct. 1, 2013.

Thanks! This time I hope to get fruit on it. I pollinated these two flowers...when the dozen or so flower buds bloom I'm going to pollinate those, also. I will cross my fingers that they'll produce fruit!

Lucky sod! Good luck with them!

Thanks! I'll need it. This plant has only produced one fruit in the many years that I've owned it. Of course, I've never hand-pollinated it correctly in the past.

Always blame the pollen, not the gardener!

I could do that...but the fact is that I hand-pollinated it incorrectly.

Look at this YouTube video...it gives a new meaning to hand-pollinating. lol!
