How to care for Abiu fruit plant?
Location and Soil
The first and foremost step is to choose the right location. The tree prefers 6 - 8 hours of direct sunlight. Over sunny or over shaded locations impacts the growth and fruiting of the plant. Avoid the areas that are susceptible to standing water as it may cause root rot if the soil is damp. Soil drainage can be improved by adding organic matter such as organic dry vermicompost or desi cow dung manure or garden red soil to the planting hole.
Abiu Fruit plants are drought-tolerant, but they prefer consistently moist soil. Watering the tree regularly is very important, especially during the growing season to ensure the soil remains moist. It is important to avoid over-watering as it leads to root rot. The best way to check if your plant needs water is to stick your finger about an inch into the soil. If the soil feels dry, it’s time to water.
Abiu Fruit Live Plants need regular fertilisation, especially during the growing season. Use organic fertilisers such as Phosphobacteria, Decomposed Desi Cow Dung Manure, Rhizobium, Vermicompost. Fertilise the tree every two to three weeks during the growing season and less frequently during the winter.
Pruning is important to maintain the size and shape of the Abiu Fruit Plant and also to remove damaged and diseased branches. Remove any crossing or damaged branches during late winter or early spring and shape the tree to promote good airflow and light penetration.
