Exposure Chess-appleSole pieno
With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind. The Chess-apple should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.The Chess-apple should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.

Watering Chess-appleTenere Umido
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. During this period of the year the The Chess-apple needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 2-3 buckets of water .

Fertilization Chess-apple
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.

Treatments Chess-apple
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Chess-apple
We suggest a pretty rich, quite soft, but not too drained, growing substratum.
