I have 2 or 3 year old apple trees. I have followed Charles’ advice on planting and first year, and was keen to thin the fruit now… someone told me to wait for the June fruit drop to be completely finished, so I can pick the right fruit.
Has anyone any tip into selecting the right apple fruit from a cluster? The bigger one, healthier one or on in the middle?
Thanks a lot.
Thierry I thin most clusters to one and often remove the large central one which has a short stalk, which would make it more difficult to pick for storage. Then leave the next largest, and as soon as possible now.
