Plentiful sunlight is a key to maximizing fruit production. Choose an area in your landscape that is in the sun most or all of the day. Otherwise, expect reduced performance from the trees. Early morning sun is particularly important to dry dew from the plants, thereby reducing the incidence of disease.
Good Drainage is a more important Consideration than soil fertility. Plant trees in well drained soil. Roots need a generous supply of oxygen; in most conditions plating on a raised terrace will help. A neutral soil is preferred.
