Propagation and Field Establishment
Seeds are taken from the mature trees of the best cultivars and planted in seed beds in March each year. Four weeks after planting, cuttings taken from other varieties of mature trees are grafted to the young nursery plants. These young trees are then planted out in November and December, with different varieties placed alternatively in the same field to allow cross pollination, essential for quality and yield.
Plants are kept free of weeds at all times and fertilizers applied three times or more per year, based on regular soil sampling and laboratory analysis.
An integrated pest management programme is in place to reduce pest damage to the trees and crop especially from July to March during the flowering and harvesting season.
