Apple tree help
Can any of you South Florida apple tree growers out there tell me, when do I strip the leaves from my apple tree to trick it into dormancy? Have I waited too long and missed the boat?
I have a multigrafted apple tree I got from Bay Laurel Nursery that has just taken off. The "Fuji" graft is over 6 feet tall and I am thinking I need to cut it back some to give the other varieties a chance to thrive.
Also, I have a little "Dorsett Golden" apple on the tree that I am wondering whether I should leave to see what happens or remove it.
Any guidance is appreciated.
