Planting and care

Garcinia has lately grabbed the attention of many health enthusiasts and now when the fruit extract is available under various brand names, you might be thinking whether you can grow it on your own. Definitely it is possible and all you need is a lot of determination and little care. If you are from India or Southeast Asia then the natural climate prevailing at your place would support the growth of Garcinia Cambogia but if you are placed at some other region then you have to follow some simple care tips to grow this fabulous fruit in your courtyard.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun Well-drained soil Medium 36 degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Kokum

  • The regular garden soil is not recommended, as this soil is more prone to diseases and weeds.
  • The tree is adapted to Asian environments and if you plant it in garden soil then there are chances that it dies immature.
  • You can make a special potting mixture for this plant by mixing organic compost and garden soil in one is to one proportion.
  • The organic compost would be required periodically even after the tree reaches its full grown stage as this will increase the fruit yield of the tree.
  • This mixture is somewhat same as the soil mixture you see in the rainforests and hence favorable to the growth.

Typical uses of Kokum

Special features: The proper care taken during initial growth phase would turn out to be great growth booster throughout. Well-maintained saplings turn into healthy trees and eventually give a good yield. Do not forget this is your future and you cannot take shortcuts in shaping your future for sure.

Culinary use: The fruits are plucked when they are ripe and used in juices.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for an ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: NA
