Tamarillos

    2 responses

Nick starts with ...
My (recently acquired) Tamarillos are doing well but I notice one of them has developed a second stem. Should I remove this (i.e. are they meant to have just one stem to achieve maximum vertical growth?)

My tamarillo is 2.5m tall and loaded with fruit. They are a very delicate plant and growing them lower and wider should be helpful against wind damage. It will also keep the fruit within reach. My plant branches 20cm above the ground then 50cm above that then 50cm above that again then into many small branches. At the moment it has 30+ clumps of fruit each with about 3 fruits. On your plant the fork in the trunk may be in danger of splitting as the plant gets taller. Perhaps next year you might consider tying a large loop of rope around both of these branches/trunks to stop them from pulling away from each other.
