One crop per year, if you are lucky....;-)

You don't need to spray insecticide after harvest unless you see a specific issue. Usually it's just the fruit that needs a set schedule.

You should check the insecticide to be sure it's what you need, cleared for fruit, and what the preharvest interval is usually listed in days before harvest. Don't spray closer to harvest than that interval.
