Tips for Care:

Select a planting site in full sun with well-drained soil. If you keep them in pots, ensure you choose a deep pot with plenty of room for the root system.

  • You’ll gain life-long benefits from Nature Hills Root Booster used in the planting hole. Symbiotic ingredients like mycorrhizal fungus support the feeder roots and never “wear out”.
  • Provide a consistent amount of water for best results. Mulch around the tree trunk to a depth of three inches; pulling it back away from touching the trunk directly.
  • Pruning is not usually required, but you should thin the young crop early in the season. Space them to every six inches to allow the mature fruit to reach its full size.
