Provide humus-rich, well drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Apply a balanced fertilizer just before new growth begins in spring; repeat after harvest. When pruning, leave some of last year's wood for fruit development.
