Plant and rootstock performance
Production starts very early, with the first fruit in the 3rd year and full production by the 7th year.
Fruit size may be reduced if cropping is excessive, especially with highly productive varieties.
These varieties require specific techniques to reduce the crop load, such as removal of a proportion of the spurs.
Good growing conditions, such as deep soils and regular irrigation, are also key to successful production.
