The best time to plant tamarillo trees is in spring when all risk of frost has passed. I don’t recommend planting anything in summer but as long as you keep a good watering schedule you should be fine to get away with it.
Where to plant: This plant requires a warm, sheltered site in full sun. Protect from frosts and strong winds.
Soil conditions: Good drainage is required. If you are worried about the drainage plant on a raised mound, in a raised garden bed or try amending the soil by adding lots of compost and organic matter. Mulching is beneficial as it will help with water retention over the summer months. Water regularly through summer.
Citrus fertiliser can be beneficial. Apply in summer and autumn.
