Plant Care Guide:
1. Planting: Choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Plant the Grumichama sapling in a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Gently loosen the roots and set the plant in, ensuring the base is level with the soil surface.
2. Soil Type: Prefers rich, loamy soil with good drainage. Slightly acidic to neutral pH is ideal for optimal growth.
3. Watering: Regular watering is crucial, especially during the growing season. Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering in the winter.
4. Light Requirement: Thrives in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Ensure at least 6 hours of sunlight per day for healthy growth and fruiting.
5. Feeding/Fertilisation: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the growing season. Compost or organic matter can also be added to enrich soil fertility.
6. Temperature: Grumichama enjoys warm climates. It’s frost-sensitive, so protect it from cold temperatures below -1°C.
7. Pruning: Prune to maintain shape and size. Remove any dead or diseased branches. Light pruning encourages better fruiting.
8. Flowering and Fruiting: Flowers appear in spring, followed by fruiting in early summer. The fruit matures quickly, often within 20-30 days after flowering. Harvest when the fruits turn deep purple for the best flavour.
