Potassium--when to use and how much to use on cherimoya or atemoyas.  I have a grafted African pride tree.  This is my 2econf year in the ground.  How much potassium to use during fruiting stage.  A teaspoon, tablespoon, or cup?  How best to deliver it?  Dilute in water or just drop the salt?  Will too much cause damage or death to the tree?

Your tree looks nice, has it not been getting fertilizer at all?  You should use a balanced fertilizer with micro nutrients.  Gro power avo citrus 8-6-8 is what I put on all my trees.  I put a fist full or so a few times a year.  They sell it at walter andersons.
