Catjac, how long did it take to go from planting the cut-off top, to getting an edible fruit? I have grown the tops before, but they became so huge and unmanageable with no sign of trying to send up a center stalk, I ended up throwing in the compost.
You probably threw it out just as it was about to fruit. I don't keep track because it takes so long. 2 years maybe to the flower. The flower takes 8-10 months to ripen. Not for the impatient.

I use orchid fertilizer on them. Why? I don't know-it just seemed fitting.
