Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune as needed to remove dead wood and to maintain desired size and shape. Thin heavy crops in late spring to prevent damage from overbearing.
