Tips for Care:

All fruit trees need is some full sun and well-drained soil. Keep the moisture moderate once they’re established and mulch the site very well. Plant in full sun where it receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. It’s always best to select an area that receives the drying power of the morning sun.

Fruit trees can’t tolerate standing water, so make sure the site you select has well-drained soil. Adapting to just about any soil type, as long as it is well-drained. This is a great choice for mild climates. It enjoys lots of good air circulation, so make sure the planting site isn’t a low-lying trap for cold air.

Plan to supply a regular schedule of water. This is critical during the first year in your landscape. Add supplemental water during fruit development every year. Wood Mulch helps keep the root system nice and cool. Add a 3-4 inch layer each spring, but pull back 6 inches from the trunk.

Prune in late winter to maintain a vase-shaped canopy with scaffolding branches at a 45-degree angle. Remove branches that cross or shade others, or grow into the interior of the canopy. Your goal is to work to increase sunlight and air circulation in the canopy.
