Some interesting articles on growing fruit

alan haighSeptember 14, 2013

My links never work but maybe someone else can figure it out.

The most interesting article I checked out here was how pruning back cherry shoots (that season's growth above the cherries themselves) a week before ripening increased the sugar content of the cherries. Seems an easy procedure for home growers to increase fruit quality.

Harvestman-it looks like the link is to an email, I assume in your inbox. The link takes me to a google sign in page. I don't suppose you want to share your user name and PW. :)
Looking forward to the article if you can link to it outside of your email
