Grow bright and tasty fruit with these amazing minerals!

As a home gardener, you aim to produce the best possible fruit and vegetables for your own consumption or for sharing with friends and family. At Roots, Shoots & Fruits, we can provide helpful tips to achieve bright and tasty fruit full of nutrients. 

As you approach harvest time, ensuring your produce ripens perfectly is important. One way to do this is to address any mineral deficiencies in your soil, which can improve the quality of your fruit and vegetables or as a foliar spray which your fruit quickly responds to.

You can also strengthen the cell walls of your fruits and vegetables to make them firmer and less susceptible to rotting and spoilage. Maximising sugar levels means bigger, tastier produce that will be a joy to eat.

In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at these factors and offer tips to grow your home garden. 

How do I get the tastiest produce from my home garden?

Strengthening the cell walls of your plants is a crucial step to having crispy, tasty fruit and vegetables that can sit in your fruit bowl without spoiling.

So, how is this managed in the garden? Calcium and potassium are two minerals that particularly benefit plants during their ripening phase.  

Calcium is one of the most important elements in plant mineral nutrition, ensuring produce is firm and less susceptible to disease. The addition of Calcium after flowering and throughout the ripening period will give fruit and vegetables firm skins that will last without spoiling.

Potassium is crucial both in the early stages of development and as your produce begins to ripen. Potassium aids in sugar accumulation, giving you super tasty fruit and vegetables that are large, have good colour, flavour and perfect ripeness!

What should you apply?

To optimise the growth of your fruit and veggies, including strengthening cell walls, preventing rot and maximising sugar levels, use our Ripening Bundle: K-Forte + Biomin Calcium + Mobilizer.
