    Care Information
    Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Apply nitrogen-rich fertilizer soon after bloom period. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune in winter to control size; fruits best with annual pruning.
