DWARF FRUIT TREES

SOIL

Prefers well drained fertile soil.

PLANTING SITE

Sunny, sheltered and frost free position is best. Plant 2m apart from other dwarf stonefruit trees.

WATERING

Water well during the early stages, during long dry periods and when the fruit is developing.

CLIMATE

Best in areas with some Winter chill and protected from hard Spring frosts.

GENERAL CARE

Thin out leaves and fruit to allow good air movement and light penetration.

PESTS & DISEASES

In areas with wet Springs and hot humid weather a preventative spray program is recommended. Copper sprays at leaf drop and again twice in early Spring as buds swell will help prevent Leaf Curl.

Great in containers and as focal points in gardens and entrys.

Varieties range in ripening time from early to late Summer. Some leaves around the fruit may need to be removed to allow the fruit to ripen.

All varieties are self fertile.
