Caring for Fruit Trees
More than anything fruit trees need access to more sunlight than other trees. The funny thing about fruit trees is that they generally do well under minimal care. However, by paying close attention to fruit trees you can produce a much larger quantity of high quality fruits.
Unfortunately, fruit trees are highly susceptible to pests and sickness. In some cases you can use dormant oils to protect your trees through the winter from pests. The oil works by suffocating the pests within the tree. When it comes to watering, and fertilizing fruit trees the best policy is to observe growth and make adjustments from there.
In the event that your tree is growing exceedingly fast you want to cut down the two processes a little bit. If it isn’t growing at a normal rate try doing longer duration watering, and using more fertilizer. You may want to consider fruit thinning as well. This process works similarly to tree pruning only with fruit. Basically, by removing some of the weaker fruits growing off the tree you can repurpose the nutrients in the tree towards the healthy fruit. This process ensures that you can obtain a healthy batch.
