Any thoughts on pruning fruit trees? I have an apricot tree which has become so rangy that the boughs are snapping under the weight of the fruit. I think a more compact tree would be better. Also less fruit might = better fruit.

Or more fruit=more rakiya? Wink

PS I'll ask FiL - he seems able to work magic with fruit trees (and a lot of other stuff)....

Autumn is the time to prune the trees and, as the commercial growers always do it, it has got to improve the yield. Can't believe they do it just to reach and pick the fruit. Very good year for fruit our end of the country, so expecting a few gifts of village rakia, have enough now to be in an alcaholic oblivion for a couple of decades.

I would prefer a smaller yield of larger fruit. As things are I doubt if the tree will be able to bring the whole crop to full ripeness.
