They're from a subtropical region where there isn't a lot of soil
nitrogen. If you give them fertilizer, they get excited and put all their
effort into exploiting the nutrients before they're washed away or taken by
competing plants; they figure they'll fruit later, since they think they
have all the time in the world. Then winter comes, and the plants die.
