Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant in any area that receives 6 hours of direct sun each day. Well-drained soil is also important for your tree. From there, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place the plant, tamp down your soil and water to settle. Finally, mulch around the area to prevent weed growth.
2. Watering: Your tree will benefit from regular watering each week. When the tree is in a dormant state, only provide enough water to keep the soil slightly moistened. As soon as you see newer growth emerging from the tree, you can water whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry.
3. Pruning: Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy, making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems and weak, damaged, or dead branches. Low-hanging, droopy branches should also be removed. Pruning aids production, so it's great for your tree!
