We all love our organic fruits. Most gardeners understand that how the fruit is grown has a direct effect on its taste. It also has an effect on the nutrient values of the fruit. Compare the taste and health of a plant that is grown on a commercial farm with a plant that is grown in a home garden, and you can see, feel, and taste the difference.
Below we are going to give you some tips that we have gathered from experienced gardeners on how to get your highest yield and the sweetest and juiciest fruit from your plants.
- Keep them healthy

- Prepare your soil correctly
The more fertile the soil, the better the crop. Make sure the soil is tilled properly and that none of the plants that were planted there before remain. Test the soil to see if the PH balance is correct. If it is not, add nutrients to the soil before you plant.
Fruit plants need plenty of water. The roots must have water to properly grown. However, do not over water them. You should minimize the amount of water on the leaves and be sure you have adequate drainage.
- Where you plant matters
Fruit plants require a lot of sunlight. But, do your homework. Before deciding what to plant, determine how much direct sunlight the plant will get. Most fruit trees require 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day and good air circulation.
- Use organic compost
The best fertilizer is compost that consists of organic peelings and things from your kitchen. Compost also assists with the drainage of the plants.
- Find out if you need cross-pollination.
Apples and pears are good examples of trees that need cross-pollination. They need another blooming tree of a different species planted next to them to get the best fruit. Citrus fruits do not usually need cross-pollination. You seed vendor can help you with the selection.
