Planting And Care

There must be adequate moisture in the soil to encourage vegetative growth and blooms that occur on the new branches.

The tree should be watered every 2 – 4 weeks during the period of low growth and every 3 to 5 days while it is flowering and setting fruits.

Lakshmana phal is normally fairly low maintenance and quite easy to grow, as long as a level of basic care is provided throughout the year.

Fertilize every quarter of the year with a 10-10-10 NPK at a one-half pound per year for the first year, 1 pound the second, and 3 pounds for every year thereafter.

Very little pruning is required once the initial shaping is attained. You should only need to prune out dead or diseased limbs, which should be done once harvest is over.
