Light: It grows best in bright full sun.
Water: Water moderately once per week or enough to keep the soil consistently moist at about a 15 cm depth but make sure the plant is not drowning in standing water.
Fertilizing: Apply a high-potassium fertilizer to the soil once every two to three weeks to encourage fruiting. We recommend to use mulch and compost.
