Keep this baby compact. Prune when received. Use good ptting mix. Add humus or manure according to conditions. Add pellet chicken with caution. Add K in Spring. Best potted in a large space and mounted on bricks. Feed Autumn-Spring twice only. Be patient | Bron Ramey - Newcastle, NSW 28-Nov-2016

Got eaten by the staffy when planted.
Fertilised with manure, woodchip, Blood n bone 10% potash.
Seems to have fruit all year round? Anyway - the fruit is really lovely - highly recommend. Water heaps when fruiting to get that delicious jelly like centre.... an often under rated fruit.
