Grow Tropical Fruits at Home
 about Blackberry Jam Fruit - xxx
 location -  Blackberry Jam Fruit can be grown in all 50 states simply by bringing indoors before temps drop below 40 degrees and providing lots of light. Most tropicals like Blackberry Jam Fruit are very fast growing and easier to maintain than domestic trees. Below are a few brief tips for successful growth both indoors and out.
 planting in ground - Blackberry Jam Fruit are fast growing and require space to stretch out, so plant your rows on 18 foot centers or for individual trees choose a location at least 10 feet from other trees or shrubs.

 planting in pot - Blackberry Jam Fruit grow very well in containers as long as you provide an adequate size pot for root development. Select a pot 18-24 plus inches in diameter and 20 plus inches in height, with adequate drain holes. Glazed pots require far less watering than raw terracotta pots due to their porous nature.

 soil - A well draining soil is of primary importance as Blackberry Jam Fruit roots do not like to be wet and will rot if allowed to sit in water for extended periods. A mixture of soil, sand and perlite is highly recommended for proper drainage.

 indoor light - A bright and sunny solarium or window location with a more southern exposure is best for growthn.

 outdoor light - Blackberry Jam Fruit prefer bright light and direct sun. If possible 12 hours of bright sun light is best for growth though we have gotten remarkable results growing these trees in 30% shade year round.

 water - When watering Blackberry Jam Fruit make sure to lightly soak the soil and then do not water again until the top 2 inches are dry. Depending on light conditions, location and foliage watering may be required weekly or daily. Be sure to not over water,  mucky soil will almost always cause decay and ultimately kill the tree.

 fertilizer - It is recommended that you fertilize at the same time as you water using a time released fertilizer 8-3-9 or similar to help your Blackberry Jam Fruit grow. These trees are moderate feeders and may require multiple feeding during the growing season. It is important to follow the fertilizers labeled instructions as to not burn or kill the tree.
