First time growing them, I have no idea how big they will get or should get before flowering. The ones I have seem small compared to tomato plants, yet they are making little flowers already.

Should I pinch off the flowers?

Unless it was recently transplanted I'd let it be. katie

My friend is growing them as well and they are just like yours and have fruit on them. Tiny little things. I 've never had one going to try one before I decide it's something I need to grow. She says they are sweet like fruit and good for jams.

Update, the plants are growing strong and making plenty more! I'm excited!
