Hereโ€™s how you can make your sitao sweeter so you can sell the fruits at a higher price. The trick?

VERY SIMPLE – Apply muriate potash (0-0-60) when the plants start bearing flowers. Apply 50 grams per hill by burying in the soil and then irrigating or watering the plants afterwards. The plants will not readily absorb the fertilizer if it is simply broadcasted over the soil surface.

FROM FARMER HERO – This tip comes from Danny Mateo of Angat, Bulacan, a former jeepney driver who became a Farmer Hero of a seed company for being a very successful vegetable grower. He started growing vegetables in 1982 by borrowing 2,500 sq.m. from his father so he could start planting vegetables.
