Pinch blossoms on young semi-dwarf apple?
I have a semi-dwarf apple that was defoliated last year due to cedar apple rust. At the time, I was worried about it even coming back (http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/fruit/msg091648381322.html)
It did come back, though barely put on any new growth. It's leafed out now and has a number of blossoms. It's still much smaller than it should be, however. I put it in in 2011, which was a crazy wet year, which stunted growth I think, and then last year with the CAR... wondering if it would make sense to pinch off the blossoms and let it put more energy into growing up and out.
