Guide to Growing Naranjilla Seeds in Your Garden
How Can I Germinate Naranjilla Seeds?
Soak the seeds in warm water for 24 hours to help soften the hard outer shell and improve germination rates. After soaking, remove the seeds from the water and place them on a paper towel to dry for a few hours. Fill a seed tray or small pot with a well-draining potting mix, leaving about an inch of space at the top. Plant the seeds about 1/4 inch deep into the soil, ensuring they are evenly spaced apart. Water the soil until it is moist but not soggy. Cover the pot or tray with plastic wrap or a clear lid to create a humid environment and promote germination. Place the tray or pot warmly with plenty of indirect sunlight. Check the soil moisture regularly and water as needed to keep it consistently moist. Germination can take several weeks to a few months, so be patient and moisten the soil.
How Can I Care for The Naranjilla Plant?
Naranjilla Lulo Plum plants prefer well-draining soil with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Adding organic matter like compost can improve soil fertility. Naranjilla plants require regular watering to moisten the soil but are not waterlogged. Avoid letting the soil dry out wholly or overwatering, which can cause root rot. The plants prefer partial shade to full sun, depending on the climate. In hot and dry areas, they will do better in partial shade, while in more excellent regions, they can tolerate full sun. Lulu Plum plants are heavy feeders and benefit from regular fertilization with a balanced fertilizer or higher in phosphorus and potassium. Regularly inspect the plants and treat any problems promptly with insecticidal soap or other organic remedies.
