interesting articles on fruit growing
I tried to post this earlier but somehow it was not picked up. I was e-mailed a free copy of Tree Fruit Magazine (Australia) and there are a couple very interesting articles about growing tree fruit- especially the one about cherry extension growth. I can't post a link but you can find the web site through google and it provides free access to the current issue.
The article tells of research that indicates you can increase the sugar of cherries by pruning back annual growth a week before the fruit ripens and also reduce cracking.
