Provide humus-rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first few first growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune to thin during dormant season; this results in new growth that produces the flowers and fruit.
