Pomefruits are deciduous, small to medium sized trees which have an upright growth habit, narrow crown, soft green foliage that becomes rather colourful in autumn, delicate perfumed spring blossoms along with juicy, plump fruits. The fruits within this family (Apples and Pears), have a core of several seeds that is surrounded by a tender, crisp and sometimes crunchy flesh that is encased in a tough thin skin that ranges from red, golden- yellow to various shades of green.

Optimum response to fertilisers will only be achieved when weeds, insect pests and diseases are controlled and adequate soil water is available.

Fertiliser use recommendations are presented as a practical guide to good agronomic practice under most situations. Local soil, climatic and other conditions should also be taken into account as these could affect plant response to fertiliser rates and applications.

For further information we recommend you seek advice from your local agronomist.
