Be careful in selecting the right kind of container fruit plant. This is due to space constraint and one needs to take extra care of these plants.

When using a container make sure holes are made at the bottom of the container. Container can be of any shape or size, however, it should not be smaller than 10 – 16 inches in diameter.
You need to fill the container with a light variety of potting mixture with good breathing space. Create a mound at the center of the pot and place the root at this point. Cover it with soil tapping gently.
