When we purchased the trees, we were advised to rub the fruit out in the first year no matter how tempting it was to leave, as fruit on one year old wood can exhaust the tree.
So having done this and now we are successfully into our second year of apple tree growing, we are a little lost as to what to do next with fruit?!Do we rub out all fruit again? Do we just thin fruit out? Do we leave the fruit? How long does rubbing out or thinning go on for? If anyone can provide some sage advice it would be very much appreciated.
