Prepare a suitable hole and plant the Sharon Fruit at the appropriate depth. The top of the root ball should be slightly below soil level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.  Plant the tree in a warm, sheltered area with full sunlight, sheltered from the wind.

  • Care
  • You can harvest Sharon Fruit between September and November. Unripe fruit will ripen faster if stored in a plastic bag with apples. Pruning is rarely necessary. Be sure the tree has an open crown in May by removing crossing branches. You can also prune very long branches during this period. Protect the tree against frost with a covering of burlap or bubble wrap. Are you growing Sharon Fruit in a pot? If so, take care when there are signs of frost. New leaves will appear in early spring, but only when the frost is over. These trees become more resistant as and when they get older.
