Here's what the tag says:

Self-pollinating tree, best grown in the southwest. Performs well in higher elevation areas with a short growing season. Medium to large, good quality fruits have purple skin.

Once well established needs only occasional water. Fertilize 1-3 times during growing season. Fruit in summer and fall.
