Does this prime jan need to be trellised? Or is it erect enough to stand on its own?
Cathy on Jun 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I provided a small 30" tall trellis at the beginning, but the second year the stalke did not need it and it could stand on its own. The trellis still comes in handy for the drip irrigation lines.

These plants took of the very first year and even produced a small amount of berries. This is the second year and they have already doubled in size by mid May and can't wait to see how may berries it will produce this year.
