This tasty clingstone fruit was first introduced in Georgia in 2002.  It grows well in humid climates, making it an excellent choice for growers and home gardeners in the Southeast.

Planting Instructions: 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. After watering, if soil compacts, be sure to add enough soil to fill the hole to ground level. Fertilizer: Fertilize in late winter or early spring over the root zone with a balanced fertilizer.
