Other notes:

  • Excellent for using & eating fresh from the tree
  • Good storage life

  • Feed twice a year with a slow release fertilizer. Fertilize in early spring before growth starts and late fall after the leaves have fallen and the ground isn't yet frozen. (5 minutes of work)
  • Prune in late winter to remove crossing branches and promote good airflow to encourage fruiting. (5-10 minutes of work)
