Tips For Care

Fruit trees need full sun to develop the best fruit, requiring at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Hardy in USDA growing zones 6-9, Garden Gold tolerates heat and humidity.

Garden Gold adapts to a variety of soils, even tolerating poor soil and doesn’t even need a pollinator. For best results though, provide your tree with a good start in rich, organic soil, amended with manure and compost in a well-drained soil site.

For best results, fertilize your tree regularly with Dr. Earth Fruit Tree Fertilizer or a good organic, slow-release fertilizer.

Provide ample water for your young tree while it becomes established, not allowing it to dry out between waterings. Then reduce your watering to moderate, yet consistent moisture during the heat of summer and when fruiting. While drought-tolerant, it’s best to protect your investment by providing supplemental watering in times of need. A generous layer of mulch helps retain soil moisture as well as insulate the root system from heat and chill.

It’s generally a vigorous grower that demands little attention. Prune to keep an open canopy for sunlight and airflow to reach the interior of the tree, and to remove dead, diseased or damaged limbs. Reaching only 5-6 feet tall and 3-4 feet wide, you’ll not have much to do!
