Moisture: Water regularly as needed.
Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil.
1. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling.
2. Set the tree in place so the crown (part of the tree where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface.
3. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.
Careful, early training, annual pruning and shaping are required to insure healthy and productive trees. Prune to avoid formation of V-notches. Once mature, trees will require little pruning.
