Need thinning: Apple, Pears, Asian Pears, Plums, Pluots, Apricots, Nectarines, Peaches Do not need thinning: (unless trees are stunted and have a large crop) Fig, Persimmons, Pomegranates, Avocados, Guavas, Citrus, Jujubes, and Nut trees When the fruit is the size of a pea and an olive is the best time to thin. Even if you're late..... do it anyway. Our Dave Wilson friends show us how to thin the fruit of a schoolyard orchard
Before the Summer heat, all young fruit trees can benefit from painting the trunk. This protects against sunburn that can cause damage or even death of the tree. Here our friends at Dave Wilson's show us how.
