Care and Pruning
Prune for shape and aeration after fruit is harvested. Netting is recommended to keep critters from eating your fruit.
Fruit can be eaten raw or used to make breads, pies, cookies, cakes and ice cream.
Uses for Fruit
For best fruit production, we recommend planting more than one tree, about 10 feet apart. Trees will start to produce fruit at about 5 years of age.
