Demonstration:
Fruit Tree Pruning, with Master Gardener Ray Chapa.
In order to maintain fruit production in a tree's lower canopy, it must be exposed to sufficient light.  When fruit trees are allowed to grow too tall or to become shaded by adjacent trees the lower canopy will be lost and only the middle or top of the tree will flower and eventually set fruit.  To prevent this, fruit trees should be pruned annually or biannually.  Learn appropriate pruning techniques for different sub-tropical fruit trees with this hands-on demonstration.  A brief discussion on general fruit tree care and culture will be included.
