generally there will be two crops, the first called Breba are from last years growth and the second crop will be smaller and form from new growth.

since you're in zone 9 the summer will be long enough for the regular crop to mature.

would pruning now make any difference or help with the second crop?

Try fertilizing w high phos like superphosphate, bonemeal, or regular phos.

I've had a second main crop in my greenhouse. So that's with a 300 day growing season. The key is you need a second spurt of growth. Pruning might do that in fact it has for me at times. But fertilizer and water can cause another growth spurt as well.

thanks, i'll fertilize and then prune part of the tree and see what happens.
