A short post with photos to demonstrate the benefits of removing excess fruitlets. (Again with the fruit thinning..!)
If your fruit trees aren’t carrying much fruit after an amazing harvest in 2020 then don’t worry, it’s quite natural.
Now is a the best time to hand-thin apple fruitlets, particularly on smaller trees and definitely on any that are growing in pots.
Fruit thinning is an essential operation to carry out to improve your chances of better quality fruit this year and more fruit buds next year.
