Tip of the Week

Fruit trees should be pruned from the time they are planted. Early pruning will shape the tree into a desirable structure and will encourage better fruit production and less broken branches later in life. There are three types of pruning systems, Central Leader, Vase or Open Center and Modified Central Leader. The type of tree will dictate the pruning system chosen. Central Leader is best for apples, pears, persimmons and pecans. Vase or Open Center is best for almonds, apricot, cherry, fig, nectarine, olive, peach, pear, plum & pomegranate. Whereas the Modified Central Leader is a good choice for many fruit trees. Apples, pears, peaches and nectarines can be pruned during the winter, but wait until summer to prune apricots, cherries and pluots.
