Plant care

Irrigation
. . As with all the fruits trees, I irrigate them 7-14 days during growing season and every 4 to 6 weeks during the winter.


Fertilizer
We have 3 to 5 inch thick layer of partially compost mulch around the tree drip line,which provide all nutrient to the plant for healthy growth.
Paint the trunk of young tree with water soluble white paint mixed with 50/50 water to prevent sun burn
