how much to thin an apple
I have 3 apple trees, two set fruit for first time. All planted in Jan 09 on B9 fwarf rootstock (Aunt Rachel, Newtown Pippin, Roxbury Russet).
The small clusters have 2 - 4 apples each, and multiple clusters per tree. Branches not very thick so I assumed I need to thin them. Is there some limit to what a young tree should support? I really only started taking care of them this fall. These are same trees I posted picture of vole damage a month or so ago.
