Do all peach trees need to be bowl-shaped?
I got a 1-year old Floridaprince peach tree last year and it grew a lot since then. More than doubled in size.
I didn't realize until recently that they are supposed to be pruned to a bowl shape. I wasn't thinking about pruning and I allowed a lot of its growth to be in the middle.
Any suggestions? At about 2 feet up, i have 3 branches coming out, so i could prune off everything above that if I had to. Although 2 of the 3 branches come out of the same node. is that bad?
But if I top it at 2 feet, I'll be cutting off about 2/3 of the tree.
