The Q&A Archives: Fruit Trees

Question: I have Pear, peach, and cherry trees. Now it is the second year I am having them planted in the ground. This season I can see lot of tiny fuits on the branches. What should I do with those fruits? Leave them, cut them off, etc.? I am located in Alexandria, VA. region.

Answer: You can leave the fruits on the trees. Some will fall off (called natural thinning) but a few may remain on the branches and ripen. Consider them a bonus if they do. By next year you should have plent of fruit. Enjoy your edible garden!
