By following the below care tips, you can enjoy a healthy, fruit-bearing Grumichama plant that not only looks beautiful in your garden but also provides delicious, exotic fruits for your enjoyment.

Plant Care

  • Soil: Grumichama thrives in well-drained, fertile soils rich in organic matter, with a pH ranging from slightly acidic to neutral. It is tolerant of various soil types but performs best in loamy soils.
  • Watering: This plant requires consistent moisture, especially during the growing season and fruit development stages. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Grumichama is somewhat drought-tolerant once established but will produce better when adequately watered.
  • Temperature: Grumichama is suited to warm climates, typically thriving in temperatures between 20°C and 30°C. It can tolerate brief periods of colder weather but is sensitive to frost and should be protected from extreme cold.
  • Light: Prefers full sun to partial shade. Full sun is ideal for optimal growth and fruit production, but in very hot climates, some afternoon shade can help prevent stress.
  • Fertilising: Feed Grumichama trees with a balanced NPK fertilizer every few months during the growing season to support their growth and fruiting. An additional application of a potassium-rich fertilizer can be beneficial during the fruiting period to enhance fruit quality.
  • Pruning: Prune to maintain shape and remove any dead or diseased branches. Grumichama can be pruned to keep a compact size, which is particularly useful if grown in smaller gardens or containers.
  • Mulching: Apply organic mulch around the base of the tree to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and keep the root system cool. Be sure to keep the mulch a few inches away from the trunk to prevent moisture-related diseases.
  • Pest Control: Monitor for pests such as aphids, scale insects, and fruit flies. Treat with appropriate insecticides or natural remedies as needed. Regular inspections and maintaining good plant health are key to preventing infestations.
  • Flowering and Fruiting: Grumichama produces white flowers that are followed by small, cherry-like fruits. The fruits are typically black or dark purple at maturity and have a sweet, grape-like flavor. The tree can fruit multiple times a year under optimal conditions.
  • Potting: Can be grown in containers, making it a suitable choice for patios or urban gardens. Choose a large pot with good drainage and use a quality potting mix designed for fruit trees.
  • Feeding Regime: Regular feeding with balanced nutrients during the growing season is crucial. Additionally, incorporating organic compost or well-rotted manure into the soil annually can provide a slow-release nutrient source that enhances tree vigor and fruit production.

We ship our plants and garden supplies throughout New Zealand. Due to the increased costs of shipping and packaging, we now apply a minimal delivery charge. After offering free shipping for three consecutive years, we find it necessary to adjust this policy to align with current market conditions. However, we have lowered our prices to help offset this change.

Please note, we do not ship plants or garden supplies internationally from New Zealand. We do export plants and tissue culture materials from our overseas nursery, which requires a minimum order. Please contact us at to discuss your specific requirements.

Additional Delivery Information

  • We dispatch our plants year-round, as most are shipped with soil. During the winter months, we closely monitor weather conditions and may temporarily delay shipments if the weather is particularly severe. Our packing process includes adding insulation when necessary to protect the plants against temperature extremes.
  • In summer, we ensure that plants are thoroughly watered before they leave our nursery. Occasionally, we may need to ship plants bare-rooted, particularly when they cannot be comfortably re-potted into smaller packaging for shipping. We will always discuss this with you in advance if your plant needs to be shipped in this manner.
  • It's important to note that shipping can be a stressful experience for plants, often due to spending several days in a dark, confined space. While most plants withstand this with little to no stress, some may experience leaf drop. However, they generally recover quickly with some additional care, including proper watering and gradual reintroduction to light after arrival.
