|If the plant is blooming then you should have fruit, weather permitting. Sometimes weather conditions interfere with the flowers opening fully or interfere with the pollen moving through the flowers completely. A cool spell or a rainy spell during this critical time period can severely limit the crop. (Optimal temperatures would be 65 degrees.) Unfortunately there really isn't too much we can do to influence the weather.
